My 2003 Rendezvous heater blows cold air when it is stopped, and it blows hot air when driving. I have topped off the resevoir fill tank with coolant. The engine is not overheating and I don't notice any antifreeze in the engine oil. The temp guage needle rises a little past the 1/4 mark at idle, then goes back down below the 1/4 mark when driving. Outside air temp is in the 20 to 30 degree range. Any suggestions as to what the likely problem is, such as the thermostat, water pump or heater core

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

I have a 2008 Chev Impala LT. As long as the car is in a forward motion, the heater works fine. However, as soon as the forward motion is stopped, the heater immediately starts blowing cold air and will not blow warm air until the car is in forward motion again. Also, the engine operating temperature can be up to normal and the car still has to be driven at least six miles before warm air starts coming out of the heater vents. Norris
