No heat My Taurus blows cold air unless going at a higher rate of speed such as the Interstate, then it will blow warm air occasionally but never really warms up the car. If sitting at idle it never warms up at all. Temp gauge reads in the right area. Direction vents open to floor or defrost like its supposed to. Any help?

Heater pumps out cold air until the RPMs are higher than 2000. (No the A/C is not on) On cold mornings I'll go out and start my '05 Spectra5 and crank the heat up.

BUT as soon as I stop at a red light and the RPMs are down cold air agian.... Whats going on?

Two questions on my 1999 gmc suburban K1500: 1) The 4wd switch has no power (no lights lit) and will not switch. Its in 2WD now, but will not make any differential changes. Looking for troubleshooting suggestions? 2) The AC system blows really cold air for about an hour on interstate runs, but if you slow down for a few minutes it will start blowing hot air. If on interstate, I am guessing the heat keeps it from freezing up. I'm guessing its low on freon. Any other suggestions?

It takes anywhere from 15 to 25 minutes for the heat to start blowing out of the vents, depending on the temperature outside. If I'm parked with the car running, heat does not blow out of the vent at all. Even after having driven the car for half an hour or more. It blows cold air out the vents, when parked or stoped at red light once moving heat returns

The coolant is low, I refilled it. I replaced the thermostat. The heat gauge goes all the way to high when I am driving fast, but at idle it cools down to the temperature it should be. I stop at a red light and it cools down immediately. There isn't anything leaking as far as I can tell from looking under the car when it's been parked awhile. I had to refill the coolant again today after refilling a day ago. There is not heat at all. The blower fan works...blows cold air out :( there are no stra

I have a 2002 Acura RSX that has AC Problem. Blows very cold air, but not all the time. As long as RPM is running at drive speeds, I have cold air. However, at stop lights the air temp goes warm. If I accelerate, I get nice cold air again. The other thing I note is that it may be blowing perfectly fine cold air as I drive a half hour or hour down the interstate. All of a sudden, air gets warm. I turn it off for 15 minutes, turn back on, air is cold again. Any suggestions???

When I get going again it returns to heating. I'm cluel

I have a 1986 Toyota Celica GT. I have two problems. The first problem is I don't have any heat.

Second problem is I have no backup lights. The bulbs are good and I look f

I have a 1993 Acura Ledgend. For some reason my heater does not continue to blow hot air, it does for a few minutes and then begain to blow cold air. It does this often now.

The temp gage stays at midway range, then spikes to hot when the heat begans to blow out cold air. I noticed when the heat is on it goes back to the the midway range, then when the heater blows cold air the temp gage s

My front blower blows heat if i run the heater before the a/c. I recently turned my heater on just to ensure it works. Unfortunatly i didn't realize a heat wave was comint(6 days of 70 or higher) so my a/c didn't work. The a/c did blow cold air when the heat wave broke. I ask the question and was told the blend door may be sticking for your site. Is this something i can do or do I need to take it a shop to check? If I can do it then where is the best guide to use?
