Why does my heat stop working when I drive?

Your Coolant System May Be Airlocked If your heat only works when driving, this can also be caused by air pockets. Air pockets within the cooling system can prevent adequate coolant circulation and are sometimes the result of low coolant or a faulty radiator cap.

Can a bad thermostat cause no heat?

Thermostat. A faulty thermostat could be behind your car’s heater not working. If it isn’t opening up to let the coolant flow through it, the core can’t produce heat. Thermostats can also get stuck open causing the engine’s temperature to stay low.

Why is my heat blowing cold?

When your furnace blows cold air, try turning the heating unit off and on. If the air feels warm for a moment or two, then switches to cold, it may be that the flame sensor is dirty. With a dirty flame sensor, your gas burner won’t stay lit, causing the air to go cold soon after the furnace turns on.

What to do if the heater stops working on a pathfinder?

If the heater has stopped working in your Pathfinder, this process has failed in one way or another. A word of caution: If there is no coolant in your overflow, you can refill it by adding more to the overflow reservoir. There is almost never a situation where you would need to take the radiator cap off of the radiator to add coolant.

What happens when a thermostat goes bad on a Nissan Pathfinder?

The job of your Pathfinder’s thermostat is to regulate the temperature of the engine. It does this by allowing water to enter the engine when it is getting hot, and by keeping coolant from entering while the vehicle warms up. Sometimes when a thermostat goes bad, it stays stuck open.

Is there a bleed valve on the Pathfinders?

I’m not too familiar with the pathfinders (just joined the club a few weeks ago) but there may be a bleed valve for the cooling system to help get air out. Thanks for the suggestions all. I have not had access to the car for a few days.
