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. It works and then it blows cold air again causing my tep gage to spike up to hot whan the heat shouts down. 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

I have a 1997 Dakota, 5.2, 2WD with both heating and AC trouble. After driving for about 15 minutes, more or less, the AC stops blowing cold air. There is a musty smell and then it blows warm to hot air. The blower is still blowing strong. In winter, the heater will blow hot for a while, then blow cold. Sometimes it doesn't blow hot at all, even after first starting it. A mechanic said the AC system was good. I checked the AC Compressor clutch relay, it was good. I did not get battery vol

I have a 1986 Toyota Celica GT. I have two problems. The first problem is I don't have any heat. I have plenty of coolant, my thermostat is good and my engine is running halfway between cold and hot so it is getting warm enough.

2002 jaguar s type 3.0L I started having problems two years ago with my heater not blowing hot air until i turned the thermostat to high then it would send the heat.

I have a 1999 Caddac DeVille . The AC works fine during the summer but in the winter it won't blow out hot air unless I'm driving. I've let the car run in the morning to warm up but the inside is always freezing cold. I also want to know if the heat is suppose to blow through the panel vents because it only blows heat from the floor and windshield vents. and it only blows through the windshield and floor vents. If I'm parked it won't blow anything but cold outside air. What's the problem?

Rear heater blows only cold air no matter what the settings are at. Front heat works well. I have tried using both the front and rear controls to set the temperature, but the rear vents will only blow warm air at best. The air starts out as cold as the outside air even when the engine is warm and the front is blowing hot air. It takes several minutes for the air to get slightly warm.


If this is equipped with a rear heater core it is probably plugged up and needs to be disassembled and cleaned out ... Chevrolet TrailBlazer EXT
