sounds like your heater core has gone to seed. generally heater core replacement involves removing the dash and should be done by a mechanic or car nut. the cost of this procedure is dictated by the difficulty (time involved) of the process. you can expect to be set back at least a few hundred bucks.

check the water level of your radiator first. The heater gets it heat from the radiator/ cooling system. The heater intake hose is normally located at the top of the engine, meaning that when the water level is low the heater is the first thing to loose water, which will result in cold air coming from the vents.

In most cases when a vehicle heater that has been working properly in the past begins to blow cold air the cooling system is low on coolant. It could also mean that your heater core is clogged. A good coolant system flush might take care of this, otherwise you may have to have it replaced.

More than likely your heater core is plugged, and will need to be replaced

No, not if it's on a heat setting. Most home thermostats have a "Fan" setting that will blow cold air if the attic is cold.

Low coolant in the system. Defective heater control valve. Clogged heater core.

if youre trying to turn the heater on and cold air comes out, then its most likely the heater core

User Avatar

the blown head gasket would make it over heat. but it wouldn't cause the heater to blow cold, it should actually blow hot if that is wat happened

User Avatar

THE CAUSE for this is that when your cold air is on the petrol is used to create air. and that is how cars create cold air

Poor coolant circulation from a plugged up heater core. Try flushing the heater core and replacing the thermostat.

Could be the Climate Control Unit or Clogged heater core.

One of the reasons a 2000 Jeep Cherokee heater would randomly blow cold air and then hot air and then cold might be that there is a problem with the hot/cold duct. The air or a vent might be inadvertently blowing periodically.

Low coolant? Bad thermostat? Heater control cable not adjusted properly? Heater core airbound? Heater core plugged?
