Question

I have a 94 Camaro Z28 (5.7) liter, I have hardly any heat. Even if I let the car warm up to temp. it still doesn't provide heat. I have changed the thermostat and that didn't work. I am open for any suggestions, Thanks.

You live in Florida, you don't need heat!

Just kidding, have you played with the computer at all. On one we had here, we re-programmed the fans to come on much earlier. Car ran between 160 - 180 all the time. Problem was, it only blew warmish air and never hot.

That's the problem I have now, is that when the air comes out of the vent it's warm, but by the time it hits me it's cold, so I don't know if my heater core is going bad but I associated the heater core going bad with coolant fluid spilling in on your floor board. Thanks!

If you are sure that the cooling system is completely full, you may have a clogged heater core.

Head gasket maybe? Make sure the oil doesn't have any milky white/ice cream looking stuff in it that would tip you off to water being in the oil.

i have the same problem with my 1990rs, v-6.
i was told to check my heater control valve, to make sure all the hose are warm, and if they were, it could be a clogged heater core. the guy suggested that i get my system back flowed, to see if it clears up the problem. the one thing i did always hear was if you radiator cap went bad, it would cause the same problem, but i haven't tried that yet. if you find something out, let me know also.

Thanks alot for the information.All you that replied were right on track. I called the dealership and they are going to check for a clogged heater core and a bad radiator cap. I hope it's only a bad cap but I don't think I'll get that lucky. I'll inform you all on Thursday when I return to let you know what it was. Thanks!

On my 91 camaro my heater vacume controll thing exploded on me, (right in my face) but i relplaced it, and since it was plastic it didnt cost hardly anything, but it held the vacume control lines comming off your heat/cool indicator switch in the dash, try looking at that thing...
