Why does heater defrost vent not open on a 1989 Sunbird and cold air blow from dash vents but no air blows from heater defrost vents and where are the enter and exit hoses for the heater coil?

I don't know why the vent would not open for the defrost, but it may be related to the fact that your heater core is blown. If your getting nothing but cold air out of the vents when the heat is on, your core is finished and if the core is finished then it is likely related to your vent not opening/switching. Something''s wrong with your heating either way.

Use the defrost button on your microwave and enter 600. On the display it should say 6.00 for 6 pounds of food. Then press start. Answer 2: Defrost in the refrigerator for about 48 hours.

If you mean using a window AC and installing it backwards so it rejects heat indoors, no and yes, no it does not initially, however as an AC unit has no defrost cycle, eventually the outdoor coil will frost and require defrosting, if this is not done, conceivably liquid refrigerant could enter the compressor and damage it.

Yes, then you can control the robot and crash him into asteroids until the robot blows up

remove the four nuts in the engine bay on the heater box near where the heater core hoses enter. Drain coolant remove the hoses and pull the heater box out from the inside of the car. Remove clips holding heater core, than put your new one in.

Remove the glove-box door. Behind that is the heater core cover on the interior, passenger side of the firewall. Remove that cover and there is the heater core. Open the hood and look where the heater hoses enter the front right passenger area of the exterior side of the firewall. Disconnect the two heater hose clamps and you can then remove the heater core.

You have either a cracked heater core or bad heater hoses that are allowing antifreeze to enter into the vehicle............

You can purchase a propane forced air heater online from retailers such as Amazon. Once on the website, type "Forced air propane heater" into the search field at the top of the page and press enter to bring up the heaters.

The heater control valve is under the hood on the passengers side of the motor and is located in one of the two garden size heater hoses entering the firewall and it is connected to a vacuum line which causes it to function. If. you want a picture go to ORielly.com and enter a search - it will give you a picture. The web site is http://www.oreillyauto.com/EW3/HomePage.do and then you will enter your information on the vehicle and search for heater control valve.

It doesn't. It comes from the water heater which is usually close to the furnace. In the basement or utility room.

The GK and GS from both teams are not allowed to enter the centre third.

The heater core is located in the center of the dash inside the heater unit. If you look under the dash on the passengers side you will see, from right to left, a blower, the AC box then the heater unit where the core is. Also, in the engine compartment you will find two coolant hoses that enter the firewall near the center, those hoses connect directly to the heater core.

Turning on the heater allows the hot water and coolant to enter the heater core.The heater core is really just another radiator designed to extract the heat in the coolant and pass it on into the air surrounding it,in this situation the driving compartment,thus dropping the temperature of the coolant,thus cooling the over heating engine.

rad hoses route coolant to the engine to maintain operating temperature (to keep engine from overheating). Heater hoses supply the heater core (inside most vehicles) with hot water, when heater/ac temperature control knob is turned toward hot, to heat the interior of the vehicle by opening and closing a water flow control valve allowing water to enter the heater core for heat. =;)

User Avatar

yes, but you have to open the relief valve or one of the water connections to allow air to enter the water heater otherwise it will become air-locked and not drain very well.

The 1993 General Motors F-Body came optional equipment in the 5.7L LT1 small-block V8. The heater hose configuration is from the water pump looping to the right and over to the firewall. These two heater hoses than enter the passenger cabin to the heater core located below and behind the glove compartment.

if the match you're holding is already lit, then it would be the candle you light because you do not lite an oil lamp or a oil heater

User Avatar

make sure the ac/heater knob or switch is actually is allowing the heater duct to open up for heat to enter the car.....it could be stuck on the ac position all the time and that's why your getting cold air instead of warm air...your heater its self is probably fine.
