Probably bad/worn vanes on water pump, could be low coolant level in the radiator also or even a slipping belt.

SOURCE: Aircondition not working....just blowing warm air.....fan is working

Either you are out of coolent or the compressor is not working.

First check the fuses, then lift the hood and have a friend turn the air on. The compressor should cycle, if not take it to a mechanic. If it does cycle you are low on freon, take it to a mechanic for a system charge. Make sure they check for leaks first.

SOURCE: 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS blows cold air in heat mode.

So I am the original owner of 2000 Eclipse and have taken it back to the dealer for the 1st 5 years and they would replace a hose and tell me that there was a leak and the coolant was low. Oddly enough I never witnessed leak or saw any a/f on the drive. Plus the overflow is still at full. I fed up with the dealer(warranty ran out) so I must do this on my own or suffer the arctic Cleveland commutes to work. My driveway slopes down and typically the car is parked nose down the drive. By luck I parked it bassackward or Nose Up. and had heat when the card idled in the drive. The Heater hoses are at the highest part of the cooling system and any deficiency in the coolant level replaces hot water with cold air in the heater core. I still can't tell you where my coolant goes each and every year nor do I understand why it won't **** it out of my overflow bottle when low. I just top off radiator frequently and alls well.

SOURCE: 98 Mitsubishi 3000GT air conditioning does not blow cold

Could be a blockage. Get an air-con specialist to blow the lines out. Check for any leaks from the rubber pipes. The twisting nature of AC pipes in cars can perish and if you have heard a blow out (like a tire blowout) the air con might have blown through a pipe.

Any leaves trapped in the windshield/hood gutter?

I have a 2000 Chevy Venture van and the heat when turned on blows cold. For a while it was still blowing out warm air thru the back vents but now it is all cold. The van wouldn't warm up at all e


needs the water system back flushing out, heater being cold is its blocked up some time a few back flushes and forward flushes with a hose pipe should free up the dirt inside, same with the engine and radiator. there are meany videos on you tube to help you understand how to back flush you engie. but do the radiator and engine and heater separate so the muck does not go back into the engine.

Heater blows cold air


Air Temperature Control Blend Door Failure No Heat

In all modern cars there is a tiny DC electric motor driven gear drive that moves a plastic door that blends heated and cooled air from the AC and the heater core, this is called (interestedly enough) the air temperature control blend door actuator. The motor that moves this door fails because the door starts sticking from warping, most common complaint is no heat but it can be no AC as well. To replace these parts (blend door and blend door actuator) you must remove the entire dash from the car. Always have this problem confirmed by a dealer or qualified repair shop as it is a very expensive repair.

The heat in my 2005 Elantra will not work unless I am moving.


Change the thermostat and make sure to bleed the system of air when refilling with coolant.You should have lots of heat in a 2005 Elantra at idle or driving.

0203@yahoo.comthe van does not heat unless u are moving. when we r stoped it blows cold air and when we move it blows out the heat.


Needs the thermostat replaced = when the car is idleing it doesn't build enough heat, when driving it works harder creating more heat.

No Heat in 99 Taurus


Just finished fixing my daughters 1999 taurus heat. It would blow warm only when running down the road. At idle it blew cold. I started with replacing thermostat, and water pump because they are the easier fix. Still did not help. Then I replaced the heater core. A daunting job but not that hard to move the dash slighly out of the way to replace. There is a good write up at tarusclub.com. After that, heat was better but at idle, it would still blow cool sometimes. Researched and found answer. Park car on the steepest hill you can find with front of car up. Start car and take off reservoir cap. Let car warm up and keep rpms about 1500. After a while the fluid will come running out of the car and all over the place but it will bring air bubbles with it. Reduce rpm, add more fluid and repeat about 3 times. It will make a mess but after that, the heater works perfectly. We get heat long before the temp gage indicates any and it never blows cold unless you lower the temp.

Sounds like you are either low on coolant, or a head gasket failure.
