true but im just saying that i believe the delivery to the heater core is a by-pass so that when the thermostat isnt open the coolant still moves just not through the radiator. now if your not getting heat when you turn on the heat then your heater core is mostlikely blocked. i mean there could even be a slight chance that your water pump is messed up too.

yeah, but at 90,000 miles?

if whoever had it 1st never changed the fluid, I'm betting heater core's blocked.


Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion.

you never know sometimes theres weak spots in the metal. im not saying your wrong first things first got to see if anything is flowing and the easiest way to do that is watch the radiator with the cap off. if not check the thermostat if not that then it would be the water pump. if not that then the radiator itself could also be blocked if the car is over heating. i had that problem at about 100,000 miles and put in a new radiator and bam it was back to normal.

Yup same for me. I have a 99 v6 auto. I had to replace the water pump around 86k, was having the heater problem too at that time. Fix refill and off to work i went in a warm car. Then i also had to replace my radiator about a month ago. It took a couple topping off's before the air was all gone, but at time the air cause my heater not to work too... id check for that like they said.
