Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

If the blower is blowing air just fine, but you cannot control the temperature, you need to listen to air coming from the vents while turning the temperature from hot to cold. If you do n ot hear any change in airflow, then you may a temperature door in the dash broken. this is becoming a common problem on the Equinox and Pontiac Torrent,

Your heater core is clogged. You can fix it. Disconnect the two heater hoses and put one into a bucket. Use an air compressor to blow into the other - it'll flush the contents into the bucket. Then reverse it - put the hose you blew into, in the bucket, and blow into the one that was in the bucket. This way, whichever side of the core had the clog, you can blow it out. Reconnect the heater hoses, and then burp the system or you can end up with air bubbles in the cooling system that can cause you to overheat.

Uplanders with the 3.9 engine are prone to no heat at idle speeds. Probably weeping head gasket. Air bubble trapped. Dealers will remove rad cap and let it sit at about 25 deg. angle for a couple hours. Good for awhile.
