might be a simple fix as adding antifreeze. sometimes when ur radiator is low enough it wont let the heat heat as much or at all.
You can fix oil that is getting mixed with antifreeze in a Ford Econoline 250 of the year '98 by replacing the head gasket in the vehicle. A blown head gasket will cause the antifreeze and oil to mix.
antifreeze leaking into the oil pan
Make sure you are using the correct type of antifreeze. Mixing some environmentally friendly antifreeze with older type "green" can cause gelling. Some antifreeze will gel with age. You may need to flush the entire system and replace with the correct type for your car.
You will have to locate the source of the leak before you can fix it. Re-post with your findings.
You have to determine the source of the leak then decide on how to fix it.
get a new hose
Find source and fix it.
Breathing fumes from antifreeze cannot be good for your health as antifreeze is poisonous. If you are smelling fumes in your car you probably have a heater core leak. I recommedn you have this repaired ASAP. The only fix for a leaking heater core is to replace it. A very labour intensive job that is quite expensive.
I have a 02 buick rendezvous mine would blow a lil heat but never would get hot. We had it checked it was the thremostat, that is what was wrong with mine. They told me there is three things it could have been , it could be low on antifreeze , thremostat, or if you have to keep adding antifreeze often then it is your heater core.
Replace the thermostat gasket.
The heater core is cracked. You may also be smelling a sweet sort of smell when you turn on the heat and the car is running hot. That sweet smell comes from the anitfreeze when it burns. I have a 1998 ford Expedition and I smell antifreeze inside the truck. also antifreeze leaking around the passenger side of motor outside..... I can see a mist coming out of the ac vents.... could it be bad heater core and is it easy to fix or do you have step by step removal/installation instructions? please help Your heater core is probably cracked. There is alot of work to get to the core. You have to remove the front dash board.
Spandex stretches with heat - put spandex in ice water to shrink - it is a temporary fix - body heat will cause spandex to get bigger
Could be a few things. Does it leak antifreeze? if so, fix the part that leaks. If not, you could have coolant mixing with oil inside the engine, which burns it. check your spark plugs. If they are white, you are probably burning antifreeze - fix immediately. your exhaust will smell "sweet" as well if you are burning antifreeze.
how do you fix the heat in a 2002 Chevy impala
depends where the leak is, and how bad it is.
Pressure test system to determine where leak orginates to determine fix
Yes definitely. The antifreeze cools the engine by carrying the heat out of the engine and through the radiator where the heat is dissipated. The antifreeze also passes through the heater core, a fan blows over the heater core and produces the heat for inside the car. While there are a number of reasons that the heater inside the car could stop working, no or low antifreeze is certainly one of the primary culprits. Furthermore, this is a very serious situation as not having enough antifreeze will cause the engine to overheat and seize up causing total engine failure which will be very costly to fix. The most important thing anti freeze does is to keep the liquid in the cooling system from freezing, if there is no anti freeze and the liquid freezes and turns to a solid it will expand and crack the engine block and heads or pop out the freeze plugs if you are lucky, always keep anti freeze in your cooling system, never straight water.
If it comes from the side of the motor and not from another source such a a leaing hose, then it is almost deffinatly a leaking head gasket. not a cheap or easy fix.
Capsular material is very moist (slimy) and any heating will cause it to shrink - it is for this reason that we will not heat fix the slide before staining. Also, heating may cause the bacterial cell to shrink resulting in a clear zone around the cell - which may cause cells which don't have capsules to appear as if they do.
a heat fix is something you put on the slide
check your radiator hoses and change gaskets
It is possible. However, it will be a temporary fix.
your heater core might be plugged(probable), or thermostat may not be opening all the way
