1999 Honda Accord 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 137000 miles
Hi Everyone, I've got a 99 Honda Accord and I've been fighting heater issues for a 2 years now. There really doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason as to why it is not working properly and the shops have not been able to really figure it out either. The core is not leaking and the hoses in and out of the heater core are good and hot, so the water is circulating. Last time I had it worked on was exactly 1 yr ago. The flushed the heater core and actually reverse flushed it, but I'm not 100% sold that that is actually the issue, because nothing ever really flushes out. The heater has been working great up until 2 days ago when my alternator went. I've replaced the alternator and now the only time the heater seems to blow warm is when I idle it up to about 3K. As soon as I back off, the heater cools off. Could this be the core is just bad or could it be something with electronic doors not opening and closing properly due to the issue I had w/ the alternator. The car has climate control, and I just hate to pull the heater core unless absolutely necessary because it is such a huge job and will cost lots of $'s. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
have the same problem?
