Things to check. Is the radiator full? Are the hoses connected to the heator core at the firewall? All vacumn lines connected. When engine warm, feel both heater hoses to see if water is circulating thru the heater core. If you think the heater core is pluged, remove both hoses from the core and try blowing air or water thru it. This will show if it is plugged or not and may point you to the cause. Fill the radiator with the car running as this is the only way to insure the cooling system is full and circulating.

Where is block heater located in 2001 Saturn 3-DOOR SC?

IF there is a block heater (Only some models had block heaters) you will see the electrical plug wound up somewhere under the hood. Follow that wire back to where the block heater goes into the block. If your Saturn doesn't have a block heater, and you want one, there are several options. You can purchase a block heater that replaces the engine freeze plug. That requires installation by a qualified mechanic since the old freeze plug must be removed to use that style block heater. You can purchase an engine heater that fits inline with the coolant system. That just requires cutting a hose and splicing in the engine heater. You can purchase an engine heater that sticks magnetically to the engine while in use. Be careful with that model since you should remove it if it's hanging down from the bottom; it could become a hazard when you're driving.

Why have i no heating in my fiesta 1993 model?

Typically, a heater failure in any car is the result of a bad thermostat. This is usually easily replaced (check a Chilton's manual for your model vehicle before you pay to take it to a mechanic). If the thermostat has been replaced and the problem persists, it could be a blocked heater core, which will require the assistance of a mechanic.

No heat in a 1991 Chrysler LeBaron good blower?

If the blower is good then the problem is coolant. Something is stopping the warm coolant from the engine from reaching the heater core inside the car. This might be thermostat, heater control valve, blocked heater hose or a blocked heater core. I would suggest letting the car warm up and checking the heater hoses (2) by hand to see where the hot water stops. If there is no hot water at all it is probably a thermostat problem.

In your truck when you switch from cold air to heat the air still blows cold?

Interior heat uses the engine heat. If the engine is still cold, the heater will blow cold. If the engine is warm and the heater is blowing cold, you have a problem with the heater. Check the water in the radiator and see if it is rusty. If it is rusty, change your coolant, thermostat, and hoses. Look at the heater hoses when someone steps down on the gas pedal. If a hose collapses, replace your heater hoses. Otherwise take it to a mechanic.

Why would a truck heater only blow cold air?

The heater core is blocked, or a heater hose has collapsed, keeping hot engine coolant from getting to the core. The "blend air" door may be stuck in the open position, keeping warm air from circulating, and dumping in cold outside air. I am assuming that engine coolant and water pump is good.

Where is the block heater cord on a 2002 Saturn vue?

Unless you specifically ordered the engine block heater option when you bough the car, it will not have a heater cord. If you did buy the option, the cord is located under the battery on the righthand side when facing the windshield.
