1 Answer


Sounds like your low on coolant, or the water pump is bad. Check the coolant level, if it is very low or see non, you may have a leak or a bad head gasket. Try filling it up if it is low, and you may have to purge the cooling system from air pockets. No heat coming from the heater core is a sign of low coolant or air in the cooling system. Here is a video on how to purge the cooling system...
