Check your coolant level. Don't open the radaitor when hot.
Check you fan, not the one on the dash, the one under the hood. If it's an electric fan it may start and stop at any time so don't stick your fingers in there.
Check your radiator, make sure that it's not clogged with bugs and debris. If it is, try cleaging it with a graden hose, or better yet, a power washer (at the car wash if you don't have one).

Cold air getting in at the drivers right foot


That is typical for most cars. The front lower (foot area) vents allow cold air to come in just before the heater kicks in (heat value opens). If this just started, may be wait for a warm / hot day and see it continues. Sometimes people forget as this typically happen only on colder days. I wouldn't worry about it. To make it stop, turn off the heater - A/C and wait for the car to warm up before turning on the heater. The car is warm once the engine temp gauge starts to move up / show warmer. In most typical cars it takes about 5 to 7 minutes running get the engine temp up to a point where the heater will blow warmer air. If you have more details / concerns - post them, the more you include (car make, model & year, when did the problem start, anything make it worse or better, influencing conditions e.g. rain, cold, hot, dry, etc the better).

Why does the temp gadge go up when the car is sitting still????


If the temp goes up at idle and is fine when your driving at highway speeds than the most likley problem is the cooling fans are not working.

the first thing you can do is check to make sure both of the cooling fan fuses are good. you can also check continuity of the cooling fans with an ohm meter.

The cooling fans are turned on by the low and high speed cooling fan relays. you can try swapping the relays.

If the fans still do not come on than you will need a scan tool to diagnose further since the PCM is what controls the fan relays.

2006 crown Victoria blows hot air with the air conditioner on the air condition lines are cold under the hood


sounds like the temperature blend door is either jammed or the actuator is shorted ou. when the temperasture control is moved you should hear the door moving...my guess is you are not hearing that..the actuator would be attached to the heater plenum behind dash/glovebox area...becareful to test the correct one as there will be a fresh air actuator and a mode door actuator as well...you can determine which one is which by changing the positions on heater head from hot/col, floor/defrost, recirculate and fresh air settings..each setting will move its designated actuatror..the one not moving would be you temp actuator....have fun!

My air conditioning blows cold air when driving. However, when I am waiting in a car line the cold air stops and it blows air that is warm. What is the problem?


Does your temp gauge go up at the same time?
Check your radiator fan and make sure it comes on when the temp comes up.(sitting in traffic)

My heater works but air conditioning won't


The Air-conditioning needs to be re-gassed. Take the car to an Auto Mechanic to get the Air-Conditioning re-gassed. They might also need to check it for leaks to make sure the gas stays in.
