2001 Oldsmobile Silouette Rear Air Problem

I have a 2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette and have recently discovered
that the rear HVAC blows hot air when the AC is activated. The front has
cold air coming from the vents, but the back has hot air blowing. The
temperature of the air is always hot, even though I have tried adjusting the
temperature setting using both the front and rear controls. I pulled down the overhead control and there is no valve or anything that is stuck...basically just a plug and play harness. Did a search but seems this is something more in line with a Dealer repair vs a regular novice mechanic such as myself. Would you agree? Or is there some other place I can look that possibly has a sticking actuator or valve?

You may have an issue with the mixing door found under the dashboard. It may be stuck or the actuator that moves it may be faulty. Check also the linkages if they are OK.

I have a 2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette and the front Air Vents do not blow out anything at all. There is no A/C heat or defrost. Would a low compressor cause this? The rear vents are blowing out air as...


The blower motor is either bad, or if you hear it blowing in the front but nothing comes out of the vents, then it's a vacuum motor problem. The flaps aren't angled right to allow air to come out of the vents (either for a/c, heat, or defrost).

Hello.Maybe I can steer you in the right direction. There is an actuator temp,door motor.It may be hard to find,but most of them are on the bottom of the blower box about where the ac hoses and the heater core is,under dash.This motor has gone out,it switches from cold to hot ,and all in between .Hope this is helpful.If not let me know.roniecon@gmail.com

I have a 2001 Silouette and everytime I start it up it makes a noise like a some kind of pump. Then once it is started it does it for a few minutes then it stops. It only does this when I start it up only.


don't know if this is the solution or not. was told that it is an on board air compressor. is noise in the rear of the vehicle? could be for the suspension or shocks maybe?? worth looking in that direction.
