Q: Heat and car not heating up issues

asked by on

My suv seams to be dripping at the water pump (so I assume it's bad) but the heater does not blow and neither top not bottom radiator hose heat up as they should... my temp guage never moves past cold... motor seems to be running cold ? How? And also any suggestions I plan to change the water pump/thermostat but why would the heat not blow at all or a.c. for that matter. Any and all suggestions bout the above stuff would Be great
