Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse

Heater blows cold air

I have a 2001 mitsubishi eclipse gt. Last year, the heater started blowing cold. I can leave it running for quite a while and the defroster never heats up, but as soon as I start driving it warms up. But then as soon as I come to a stop its back to cold.

    I have the exact same problem. We took it to the repair and were told it was just the way Eclipses are made -- but I can't convince my husband that answer doesn't make sense to me. It didn't always do this. What kind of repair do I ask for at the shop? How much might this cost me?

My heater blows cold air only, its worked all this time up until now. 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse, it also leaks water under the driver seat when I use the a/c. please help

It sounds like the heater matrix leaking,usually the dashboard has to come out to get to it.keep an eye on your engine water level too as its the same water and coolent that runs the a/c.if its leaking into the car then you risk over heating the engine.

Problem with heater blowing cold air 2001 eclipse spyder + 1more

You could have a couple of issues.
Heater core
Radiator blockage

You should not drive the car to avoid overheating the motor. Have the system checked by a mechanic. You could simply have air lock.

Youfr front end is either wheel balance if your steering wheel shimmies side to side or if it shakes up and down it may be alignment. Neither is good for your tires, Try the balance first (cheapest fix)

Heater is blowing cold air. Could it be that my

Had similar problem. The actuator that opens & closes the air blend door quit working. This is easy to see if you remove glove box. The actuator will move when you adjust the temp selector (do this while the heater is running).

Heater blows cold air

I had the same problem with the heater only working when accellerating. Found the overflow tank pick up tube was kinked. This of course made my coolant level low. So when the cars hot the coolant would push into the overflow, but when the car cooled the kink would prevent it from flowing back to the radiator.
