Tim West :

Thanks for visiting Just Answer

Tim West :

Are you having a problem with the heater for inside the cab you mean right?

Tim West :

Let the engine warm up, does the engine reach "warm" Also feel the heater hoses, are they hot or cold?

JACUSTOMER-s4s6u23i- :

Yes inside the cab, I drove the truck for about 20 min. on the highway, still no heat.

Tim West :

Do the heater hoses (the 2 smaller rubber hoses that go into the firewall from under the hood, passenger side)

Tim West :

do they get hot?

JACUSTOMER-s4s6u23i- :

no

Tim West :

Ok, neither get hot?

Tim West :

ARe the radiator hoses getting hot?

Tim West :

Sorry, I didn't see you replied earier.

Tim West :

If the heater hoses aren't hot it means coolant isn't flowing through the heater core.

Tim West :

This could be due to a clogged heater core or weak water pump.

Tim West :

You should let the vehicle cool down.

Tim West :

Remove the heater hoses and apply some high pressure air to the inlet side of the heater core.

Tim West :

Blow out the heater core to get anything that could be obstructing the flow.

Tim West :

Be careful you are going to lose coolant and possibly make a mess.
