Answer

I'd start with thermostat and heater core

Answer

"You have no heat" is a pretty ambiguous question. There could be a lot of things going on. The first answer is a good one, try the thermostat. While you're at it, I would also suggest flushing the cooling system. You have to drain the system to take care of the thermostat anyway. Buy some cooling system flush, and have at it. When you refill the system, be sure to use a 50% - 70% mix of Dex coolant to water.

If that doesn't work, you may want to try the heater core. This is a big hassle, as the heater core is buried below the dash - which means you have to pull the dash out. The jobisn't hard, but it is a pain in the rump and time consuming.

On the other hand, if the problem that the blower isn't blowing, you're into a whole different issue. My 96 Jimmy's blower turns on an off seemingly at will. The warmer it is outside the more likely it is to work, which is a huge drag. My heater core went bad, so I changed that, as well as the thermostat, and heater controle module. Still no good. This leads me to the conclusion that there is either a loose connection in the wiring harness, or a problem with the blower itself. I think that it's the wiring because if I whack the dashboard, the blower will sometimes turn on.

Before starting any project, get a good manual (I use Haynes) and read it thoroughly. You will be glad you did, and the book will more than pay for itself in no time!

Good luck. -- Mr. Dog

I had the same problem with a 1992 Park Avenue with the 3800 engine. I first replaced the electronic ignition but that did not fix the problem. I then replaced the crankshaft heat sensor. That fixed my problem.

If you mean the pilot doesn't stay lit, the problem is prabably a faulty thermo coupler.

Coconut trees are tropical, and typically like a lot of water. The heat might not be a problem for them, but the dryness would be.

probably the heater core especially if it has dex cool(the orange anti freeze) Check the level of coolant in the radiator. Check that the thermostat isn't stuck open.

Check voltage and plug on your fuel pump relay. Also check the relay (while the engine is running) for heat. Might be a bad ground???

The main problem - was heat ! Valves give off a lot of heat - which, if not dissipated - would cause the valves to fail.

The problem caused by the Friction * The heat is produced. * efficiency of a engine is decreased. * The mechieneries will get old quickly. * Loss of energy in the form of heat.
