Your cooling system may be malfunctioning. When was the last time you flushed the system. Or, your motor may be running lean. Have you noticed a decrease in power since this happened?

How do you fix the heat in a 94 Chevy S-10?

add water to the radiator. believe that. if there is no water flowing through the engine, your heater will only blow cold air. if there is no water flowing through the engine and your heater is only blowing cold air, and not HEATING, your heater core is probably going out or will be soon. most people believe that if you have no water in the engine then your temperature gauge will run hot and you will know that you are overheating the engine. WRONG! your temp gauge only measures WATER temp. But if there is no water to measure, there is no temperature rise showing on the dashboard gauge. if you have NO WATER in the engine you can seriously overheat your engine and not know it because the gauge is not getting any hotter than usual (sometimes your gauge will even read cooler than usual).

How do you know if the thermostat is in an open position?

In cold weather, you'll notice that the engine temperature gauge registers only slightly or not at all, particularly if you're driving at highway speeds. You'll also notice that the temperature of your passenger compartment heater isn't nearly as warm as usual. Your car will show a temperature if you allow it to idle for several minutes. The heat flowing into the passenger compartment will be warm as usual. If your thermostat is open, the engine will rarely warm to a level you're used to seeing on the temperature gauge.

They don't know you are sick, they only know that you are different.
