Are both heater core hoses getting hot when the engine is hot and the heater is on?

Try flushing the heater core. It sounds like there isn't enough flow.

I flushed it forward and backward. Then I drove it and we had the best heat that we have had in years. Excellent, thank you so much. We are taking the suburban with my family of 6 and my in-laws for a drive to see the Christmas lights tomorrow. Timing was perfect. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. May God bless you greatly and remember that Jesus is the reason for the season. Any idea why the rear unit does not give heat?

Great! I'm glad it worked. As far as the rear, are you getting any heat at all?

Merry Christmas to you too.

I need you to check something for me. I can't remember on the 93 if it has seperate heater core hoses to the rear (under vehicle) or if they used one heater core for both areas. If it has the seperate heater core in the rear, chances are the same issue. Let me know.

Check for any blockages in the lines when you are doing it. They rust over time (inside) and can cause a problem. Do the same thing you did to the front. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

When I went to flush the rear heater core, I could not get the hoses off. They have some kind of special clamp. It was a white plastic clamp that looked like if you could squeeze it, it would come off. I tried to no avail. Is there a special way to take the hoses off with this kind of clamp?
