This is gonna be a long one but if somone would tell me what the problem i would almost send them 10 bucks. In 2003 i bought a 94 splash with a 2.3. I drove it home with about 6 inches of snow on the ground. The heat would get so hott it would burn your face. I noticed the temp guage barely went past C and i also noticed it had a tranny leak.
I took my truck to a local mechanic and told him to fix the leak and get my guage to work. He installed a thermostat and a temp sending unit. Neither one fixed my guage issues and my heat suddenly stopped working.
Summer time came and i obviously didnt need heat till winter. I finished school and became a mechnic at a local shop. when winter came and we slowwed down i was gonna fix my heat. i installed a new thermostat, new water pump and timing belt, all new hoses rad. and heater core hoses and a new heater core. still this winter i froze my butt off driving to work.
My questions are what could possibly be left that would make my heat not work. and as for the guage you can ground out the wire for the sending unit and the guage sweep all the way back and forth. Winter is over now but im hoping by next year i can get some heat.
Any info would be great THANKS
