1998 Renault Scenic 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 94,000 miles
HI, WHY IS MY 1998 SCENIC ONLY BLOWING COLD AIR, THERMOSTAT IS OK, ENGINE DOES NOT OVERHEAT, OR LOOSE COOLANT, IS IT THE HEATER MATRIX BLOCKED, IF SO CAN WE CLEAN IT WITH SOMETHING, CABLES AND CONTROLS SEEM TO WORK OK, BUT HOW CAN WE BE SURE THE CABLES ARE ADJUSTED CORRECTLY--- CAN ANYBODY PLEASE -- HELP --- BEFORE THE WINTER SETS IN JIM
Thanks Renaultman-- I had already checked on the cogs -they where ok --what it was a head gasket had gone at sometime in it"s life and oil had got into the cooling system -- so I fitted a new h/gasket ( just incase ) flushed out the cooling system a couple of times -- the matrix in the whole cooling system was all bunged up - and "hey presto" it all works fine heater is now ok --- but I will mention this --when I first noticed the heater did not work -- I took out the ash tray and the heater controls without disconnecting tthe cables and found one of the cables ( internal piano wire ) had bent back on its self -i rectified this and thought that was the problem --- but it was not --but this does happen on the renault so I thought you may like to know this little quirk----thanks for all your help ---JIM
