Subaru forester heater only blows hot air when car is moving

When the car is stationary, the heater blows cold air, but when the car is moving, it starts to blow hot air. The position of the controls does not make a difference. Or, weather the a/c is on or not for defrost.

The door in the heater box is most likely stuck. It is located under the dash on the passenger side

SOURCE: 1986 VW Golf heater blows cold air

The heater in your car depends upon a flow of hot coolant going through the heater core in order to get hot air into the car. If the heater core is partially plugged, it will restrict the flow. If you have a head gasket that is putting exhaust into the cooling system, it will eventually get into the heater core. When this happens there is no coolant in the heater core to make the air warm. If the water pump vanes have corroded away the result will be very poor coolant circulation causing the heater to not blow hot air. If your car is equipped with a heater control valve that is not functioning properly, the coolant flow will be restricted. One or a combination of these factors is likely the culprit in your case.
if the car is not overheating, the thermostat is working fine.... replace or flush the heater core multiple times to try and eliminate sediment build-up.

Make sure the heater core is in the open position by using the shut off valve and turning it to open. next, you may have a malfunction in the direction door the directs the air flow in the dash. a lever may have become lose or separated. may be a bad servo motor not directing the door to move to the heater position. i would start by checking that shut off valve first on the heater core.

I read a solution for chevy impala's that heater only blow out hot air when driving and cool air blows when sitting at red light and/or in idle position. A solution was given but I dont understand the abbreviations - "CK FOR VAC LEAKING TO TEMP BLEND DOOR". Please spell out the words so that I can understand.
Thank you.

Can't get heat at my feet in a 99 Forester. defroster works fine and blows on every setting. is there a fix for this?


I take it u mean the heaters blow hot air but only in 1 position no matter where u set it to blow it all depends on if it's electrically done or mechanically done , if it's mechanically done it's probably the rod that connects from the dial to the heater box has broke or come off or been removed etc , if it's electric then it's a bit harder and u will need to find out what bit is not working.

2004 Subaru Impreza ... I heard a squealing noise for a few days. My heater was was blowing hot air. When I turned the car off and started it back up I have nothing. No hot air. No cold air. No...


most fans in vehicles have phospher bronze bushes as bearings for the motor. These become dry and make a noise as described with thr motor eventually stopping. removal of the unit to replace or lubricate the bushes are the only answers. when you have done this check the fuse as it will probably have blown to protect the fan motor

My 98 subaru is not running hot but the thermostat needle just goes up and down and when its all the way up and the air is on it blows out hot air....the thermostat is brand new


Well the gauge issue could be your Coolant temp switch is bad.But if the car is blowing hot air out when the ac is on,that can be a faulty thermostat new in the box(it does happen) or you have a airpocket in your cooling system which just needs bled out.Usually there is a small valve located near the water inlet to the engine just open it and run the engine until water starts coming out then close off.Or if the car is not running hot,then you may just have a blend door or the heater control valve under the dash stuck on heat so it is just letting in hot air all the time.Narrow down what it is not then you will find out what is doing it.Check the switch,check your bleed valve,then check your heater valve and hoses.All are fairly cheap to replace.
