The heater does not blow hot air when I let my Toyota Tacoma 2007 idle in morning for 15 minutes. The outside air temperature is about 24 degrees, the heater blows air that is light warm. Is this normal. I have already replaced the thermostat and water pump, but same problem persists?
Heater does not blow hot air after idling for 15 minutes on cold mornings. Heater blows
hot air when driving, but the air cools down to warm when I stop at a signal light. I have
already replaced thermostat and water pump. Is this normal for Tacoma? Should the
truck blow hot air after idling for 15 minutes on cold mornings, 24 degrees?
Check for a blocked/kinked heater or heater return hose as well as the heater core itself NOTE:-Be careful do not spill any antifreeze on the ground it is deadly to animals that lick it
I had this same exact issue last month. My anti freeze was low. Once I filled my antifreeze, all my issues stopped. Now I can idle and my car stays blowing warm air. Hope this helps.
I am having the same exact problem with my 2005 Tacoma. Two different mechanics have checked it and both told me I probably had a small leak and needed to replace the head gasket. They said I was getting combustion gas in the cooling system.
