There is a valve which controls the flow of coolant to the heater core, which is a small radiator located inside the passenger compartment. If this valve is open, hot coolant will be pumped into the heater core, which will get hot and warm the air passing over it. If the lever or temperature selector in your vehicle does not control that valve, then the cable is broken, or the electrical control device is not working.

How do you change a heater core in a 1976 Corvette with air conditioning?

1968-1982 Corvette heater cores typically begin leaking due to a breakdown in materials dropping anti-freeze and coolant on your Corvette's carpet. This is not a pretty sight. Removal of the heater core takes place from inside your Corvette. First the RH side lower dash pad must be removed, then access can be gained to the inner heater box. Remove all ductwork (windshield defrost, floor duct, side ducts, etc.). The main inner heater box is supported to the firewall by 4 to 6 studs, these stud plates are riveted to the inner heater box. By removing the nut on the opposite side of the firewall the inner box can be removed from the Corvette. The heater core is mounted with straps inside the inner heater box. Once the inner box is removed from the Corvette, the heater core can be replaced and reassembly can begin. At this time it is also a good idea to replace all the seals in your Corvette's heater & air condition system. Seal kits for 68-77 & 78-82 Corvettes include ductwork seals, inner box seals, heater/ac flapper door seals and firewall mount seals for internal and external heater boxes. Replacing these seals not only improves your Corvette's heater & AC performance, but also eliminates air drafts which are common on all C3 Corvettes. From all of us at

If you have only one match and entered a room where there was an oil lamp an oil heater and some kindling wood which would you light first?

it depends on the time of day and time of year. if it's night time you would light the lamp, if you were cold you would light the heater. If you were quick enough you could use the match to light the lamp and the heater at the same time. The answer to this very basic question is this ----- you would first light the match !!!

Why would a hotel-style heater blow cold and hot air at the same time and other times not work at all?

If the unit is a heat pump, and the fan switch is set to ON, the unit compressor will cycle to maintain room temperature. Thus, it would blow hot or cold, depending on if the compressor was on, and the thermostat was calling for heat. Turn the fan switch to off, and let the thermostat bring the fan on. Not working part, no comment on that.

I have had my truck in the shop 5 time in 29 monthes. Once on a recall. once to have the a/c fixed and the heater would not blow out on the floor. They have worked on it 3 time, and the last repair lasted less than a week. What can I do?

Take it to the one of the most trusted truck mechanics if that does not work maybe take it in for a truck trade in and get a new truck.
