    I have the same issue. Checked the antifreeze level and it was low so I added to proper level as per manufacturer specifics and problem still exists.

    If in park I can change vent setting to the console diffusers and switch to recirculating air and it will heat. But once it's switched to defrost it automatically switches to outdoor air and then will not.

What temp should a/c be in 1995 chev on max

Hard to say.
Under normal conditions, vent temp should be about 20 or 25 degrees less than outside air temp.
So if outside air temp is 90 degrees and the engine is at idle speed, vent temp would be around 65 or 70. On the road the vent temp could be less than 60 degrees.
If outside air temp is 70 degrees vent temp will be around 40 - 50.

I suspect it to be a waterpump problem. I have a '06 Impala LT and it is doing the same thing with the exact same symptoms. Do you also notice a puddle of coolant under the engine after you turn the engine off and return? Thats another symptom of a bad waterpump or a pump thats going bad. I am in the process of getting it checked out and will post the results when I get a mechanic to look at it. But to me it sounds like a waterpump problem so I'd check that out!

I've had problems with Datsun (later Nissan) engines hanging the closed thermostat until it boiled, then the thermostat released and operated normally. If you increase the small vent hole in the thermostat valve plate a small amount, the problem disappears. It seems that steam from engine operation gathers behind the thermostat sensing bulb and delays opening. The increase in vent hole size lets the steam through and allows the hot water to open the valve. Hope this helps!

The heat doesnt work in my 1997 lumnia

I think you're right. If you have a water temp gauge and it reads normal temp but you still have no heat at idle then you have another problem. If you just have a temp light then I'd replace the thermostat, it's easily done. Just go to your auto parts store and buy the Hayes manual for your car.
