    Our 2006 Monte Carlo does the exact same thing. When sitting still, it has no heat. As soon as you start moving, it starts heating. It has been doing this since we bought the car with 9,000 mile on it. It now has 16,000.

    Could it be the water pump is already shot?

That is a possibility.check the level and see could also be a water pump issue sometimes the fins will corrode off and it wont circulate well at idle

No heat blowing cold air.


Do you smell coolant inside of the vehicle. If so then chances are your heater core is going.

2003 kia sorento heater blows warm air only while driving at high speed


Engines can rock on the motor mounts. You probably have a vacuum line that is pinched, cracked, broken,kinked, or unhooked. check the engine compartment lines first. If you have thin plastic vacuum lines, they can kink more easily than rubber lines. If you have been working under the dash (replacing a radio, etc) check your work area in case you have a broken fitting on a vacuum housing or an unhooked line.

My heater starts heating & then it suddenly quits & starts only blowing cold air. Is my heater core also clogged or is it something esle?


I'm thinking your cooling system has air in it. If you have recently drained and refilled the radiator, then that is probably what's wrong. I'll be brief, and tell you how to get rid of the air. Put the heater control on hot, fan off. Remove radiator cap. Start engine, let it warm up. Watch the coolant level in the radiator, when the thermostat opens the coolant level will drop. Add antifreeze to bring it back up to full. It will drop again. Add more antifreeze. Continue to do this until the coolant level no longer drops and the coolant is flowing good. Put the radiator cap back on. and see if the heater is working better.

How many gal of antifreeze should i put in the coolant system? I put 2 gal in as there was little left in the system. I went to drive the truck and within 15 min the truck was over heating. The antifreeze...


Was it knocking in the radiator when it over heated if so you most likely got an air lock in the system by pouring the new antifreeze in to fast. You need to add it real slow and once you think the radiator is full start the truck and let it warm up and leave the radiator cap off until the thermostat opens and then add more antifreeze because when the stat opens the level will go lower. Once you are sure the antifreeze is circulating an full then you can go drive the truck. Some people use a 50 percent mix of antifreeze to water but I always use 100 percent antifreeze it runs cooler.

If this car is remote start GM has a service bulletin out to do a computer flash to correct this problem, it will probably blow hot air in the summer if it remote started if you don't have the computer flash done. Hope this helps
