Could be a problem with the blower motor, or a blend door.
The blend doors direct air thru the heater core and out thru the vents.
Someone would need to remove the blower motor and check it.

SOURCE: I have a 2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette and the front

The blower motor is either bad, or if you hear it blowing in the front but nothing comes out of the vents, then it's a vacuum motor problem. The flaps aren't angled right to allow air to come out of the vents (either for a/c, heat, or defrost).

SOURCE: my temperature gauge read red... the light came on

Have you checked the coolant level? If it is low, what you describe will happen, the engine will run hot, and the heat won't seem to work (coolant level too low to circulate through the heater core). Hope it's that simple, if not, let me know and I'll attempt to help further. Good luck!

SOURCE: with a 2001 oldsmobile alero the temperature gauge

If by "shuts off" you mean goes all the way to the cold or no temp, then sounds like the thermostat is open and needs to be replaced. Could also be the temperature sensor and you are losing the signal. I would check to see the actual temperature of the engine to know the difference.

The first thing that should be checked is the coolant level. All heat is passed into the engine compartment by the cooling system.

Heater is blowing cold air.


Start with checking coolant level, if low it will cause a no heat problem. If radiator coolant level is correct you might have a temperature door problem. The temerature door is located inside the HVAC module and is controlled by the temperature control knob on the dash board. The electric motor that moves the temp door may have failed.

with winter being here you might want to consider having a new thermostat put in to increase the heat in side,but make sure your radiator is full when engine is cold

AC/heat doesn't come out front vents. Can hear


try a vaccum leak under the hood. Look and listen for any little sounds of air blowing out. Also the door switch may not be turning to vent it may be stuck on one side, like defrost!

Car is over heating. Alero 2001


If you changed the hoses and thermostat and the car is still overheating, then the next thing to look at is the water pump. See if the water pump is leaking water from a vent hole. If it is, then the water pump is defective and will need to be replaced. Sure hope this helped.
