no, not really even warm
The AC compressor should run during defrost mode to remove mositure from the cab area which keeps the windshield from fogging up. If the hoses are now hot as they should be the usual suspect is a failed blend door acuator. Click HERE for Acuator replacement.
where is this blend door located. can't tell from this instruction page.
finally changed te blend door motor. it seem to have been bad; plugged in new 1 and shaft rotated with temp control knob. however enging ran for 30 min. plus and never got warm.. bled air out of cooling sys. at new bleeder on heater core hose. water seems to be flowing, slightly. but i removed bleeder cap serveral times while running. would think water would gush out? heater hoses didn't get hot either
it's a new heater core. if the water pump was bad wouldn't the engine over heat? I've got bearing noise didn't piont point it yet but didn't figure it would hinder flow
So what next.do you recommend changing the water pump? Radiator hoses did get hot but i guess that wouldn't really matter
bearing noise is actually the ac pump kicking in & out. air definetly out of core, heater hoses still not hot. is there a fuse i can pull to keep ac off? only see a 5 amp that is also with the cluster.
well I bit the bullet and pulled the w/pump... thats it ,there absolutly no fins left, just little blades. So I sure that's it. i know tomorrow when i finish up. Thanks
