Question about 2006 Subaru B9 Tribeca

1 Answer

Mike, I have a Subaru Tribeca B9. THe passenger side blows cold air and drivers is hot.

Dealership said there is a 15 degree variance between the two. It is very cold! They burped the system said that should help. Didn't. I replace passenger side actuator door and motor. No help.

Chlorine in factory coolant has caused corrosion and damaged the heater core (there was a recall on this WWY-09 which my subaru dealer denied!) flushing wont help. Heater core needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: There's warm air blowing out of the driver-side

Most of the time the dash has to come out to access the actuators on the heater box.

Will an air pocket in the coolant system cause it to overheat or over pressurize on a 2001 Nissan Sentra ?


1. The radiator cap if working correctly it will release pressure in the system provided the cap you have is the correct pressure setting. If you are having a problem with pressure then replace the cap with a new radiator cap with the correct pressure setting. Do not use a cap with a pressure setting other than the original equipment pressure spec. So you do not go to the parts store and buy any radiator cap on the shelf that fits because they come with different pressure ratings and some of these will be totally unsuitable for your car.

2. If the pressure valve is stuck in the "old" cap the pressure release system will not work.

3. Overheating
Air pockets in the cooling system can definitely cause overheating and can retard coolant flow through the system. If you are draining the radiator to replace the coolant or replacing the radiator you need to follow the correct procedures for bleeding air out of the system for that particular engine after coolant refilling. Some engines have bleeder screws on the cooling system to assist in the air bleeding procedure and some don't.

There are various causes for overheating so don't assume it will necessarily be solved by bleeding any remaining air from the cooling system and replacing the radiator cap with one that works.

Other causes can be...........
1. Faulty cooling system thermostat. (Replace the Thermostat)
2. Faulty water pump, especially if the impellers have corroded away or have disintegrated in the case of those design genius water pumps with plastic impellers. (Replace the water pump)

3. Cooling fans not working and if so the cause needs to be tracked. Check that your fans are kicking in. If the engine is overheating the fans should be running because they will switch on when the coolant reaches a specific temp and well before the coolant gets excessively hot.

4. A partial blockage in the coolant passages inside the engine but not in the radiator if you have a new one. If the coolant is not changed at the required intervals(frequently the case with many owners) or is over diluted with water you can get a build up of debris. If products like stop leak have been used in the system this can create similar problems with partial blockages inside the engine coolant passages.

5. A compression leak into the cooling system.
If you have bled air from the system and have continuous air bubbles in the cooling system I would suspect a compression leak. In that event a basic leak down test will show if you have compression gasses leaking into the cooling system and from which cylinder(s). The spark plug is removed and compressed air is forced into the cylinder via the spark plug fitting and air bubbles will show up in the coolant of there is a leak into the cooling system.
--------------------------------
Have the problem with overheating addressed immediately. Running the engine with an overheat condition will cause expensive engine damage many times the cost of fixing the overheating issue.

Why does heater blow hot air on driver side only?


Maybe you shut the heater off on the passenger side.

Subaru Tribeca B9 Misfiring


Misfire can create a lot of heat. Especially in the catalytic converter. usually a crank sensor results in no start but it affects the ignition timing. What are the exact codes?

I have a 1992 buick lesabre and my heat stopped blowing and when I'm just sitting the heat get warm in car but when I'm driving the heat is cold


Many things. Could be bad thermostat. Head gasket out. Fan/blower relay bad/defective. Not enough antifreeze in cooling system. Check antifreeze for level and strength ith tester. Have to take radiator cap off first, but do it when vehicle is cold. Do you know how to change a thermostat? don't attempt if never done before. Pressure test cooling system or take to autozone/advance auto/o'riellys to have pressure tested. This will tell if your head gasket is blown. You can buy a cheap 5-ball antifreeze tester and check the coolant condition. One more solutions. Coolant system may have to be burped. Possible vapor lock in coolant system if antifreeze change recently and not burped properly.

05 tc. A/C blows hot then cold. Didn't blow cold


The A/C pump ismade of three seperate components. You are correct in it being electrical, to some degree. The compressor is self turnes, & in turning moves the freon thru the condensor,dryer, evaporator, & condensor. With the engine off, you can grab the clutch on the compressor, & turn it manually. Now, to your question. When you turn on your A/C, it sends a signal to one of 3 parts on your A/C compressor. The 1st signal, is a charge to the magnet (not its nomenclature name) that pulls the clutch, quickly, into the compressor shaft, so it can start turning. Now as this signal, is working,on an intermittant basis, 1 your clutch has been damaged, not always engaging fully,causing disc wear. The activating magnet, works intermittantly, this too, strains the electrical wiring, going thru the compressor to the magnet. Now the compressor works, but, 2 components, have gotten very hot, by intermittant action. To remove them, if "fused", will be labor intensive. Thanhaving a "sealed" system, dis-assembled, then re-assembled on a mechanics work table. No matter how hard I try its never completely clean......the repaired compressor can allow harmful contaminates into a system that works, with one part not working. Once contaminates are in the system......all the components can be damaged. The mechanic, is giving you the most cost efficieant repair, that will last longest, with least possiblility of failure.
