If the coolant level is ok, try warming up your truck with the air selector in the recirculate mode...i.e., instead bringing fresh COLD air through the heater core and into the cab, you just recirculate the air that's already in the cab.Alrighty guys, and suggestions as to why Rudy's heater decided to randomly desire to not work anymore?
I usually can laugh it off but this morning my thighs literally felt like some nice Round cuts of meat...
that just got pulled out of an ESKIMO'S DEEP FREEZER
....ughhhh.... please help me be warm in my beloved truck once again
I had a similar problem with an '89 Mazda truck I used to own. I made a winter front for the radiator from a piece of cardboard covered in duct tape and left like 1/2" of the top exposed and it still took forever to warm up in the winter....any other time of the year, it was fine.
One day I was looking at the heater controls and noticed I had it in fresh air mode, so I moved it over to recirculate and tossed the winter front.
Solved that problem, right then and there.
