Hi Im David. thanks for visiting the site. so you have no heat or the blower motor isnt working?
The blower is working fine and I did add some coolant in the recovery bottle which was empty or almost empty but it's still blowing cold air. Thermostat inside on the dash was reading right between the H & C. I'm not good with things under the hood so I don't know about the actual thermostat. Should I have added the coolant to the radiator itself? Where is the thermostat and how do you tell if it's working or not? Trying to learn........
ok. to tell if the thermostat is working. once the vehicle warms up to operating temp, both radiator hoses should get hot.
then if they are hot, you need to turn the heater on to high and feel the 2 heater hoses that go into the firewall. both of them should be hot. let me know when you have checked those
The two large hoses from the radiator are warm to hot but the small ones going into the fire wall are not.
do you have the heater turned on full blast?
ok, give me a moment.
what does the temp gauge get up to when the engine is running?
It just has C & H and it's just passed the middle mark.
does the fan kick on?
Yes it does.
ok. good. you definitely have a blockage somewhere in the system. remove the heater hoses form the other end(not the firewall) and drain the coolant, remove the thrmostat and flush out the cooling system.
use a bottle of PEAK radiator flush in the process.
did you have a chance to do the flush?
checking in to see how its going
