If it's like a sticky film, on the inside of the windsheild, and has a similar smell to antifreeze in the vehicle, then it's a heater core leak, which I suspect it is, seeing how your coolant level is going down.

Wiper blades were froze to the windshield and now wipers won't work.I can hear the motor running but I think the wiper linkage had been damaged


you dont EVER run the wipers when frozen to the glass..the windshield needs thawed out first..you may have stripped the gears in the unit..replacement is required..always thaw the ice first..and not with the defrost as the extreme heat will crack the glass.. use the normal vents as a first heat source..this takes time so do it earlier..

Heat not blowing out of windshield vent


Put the defroster on and move your temp setting towards warm and youll feel it come out of there. Heat doesn't come through those vents on normal heater setting those are the defroster vents.

My 97 dodge ram has no air coming from ac/heat vents in dash except for the top vents next to windshield. no air coming out at all of any kind all across front of dash.


Your ac blower doors that direct the air to the vents are vaccum controlled check your vaccum lines going to the ac most of the time it is a leak near the vaccum check valve. The reason it is only top vents is because it is the default setting in the system

I have a 1999 Buick LeSabre. My AC blows cold air out my windshield and floor vents but not out of my mid or panel vents.


the vents are run on vacuum so if you get the others just not vent sounds to me like you need to find your junction and see if all the hoses are hooked up. mine was passenger side above where ur feet go. All that usually happens is a hose came off and u need to put it back on sometimes they break but u will be able to see once u find it.

GM '97 Buick Le Sabre Climate Control flashing display


I did the exact thing with my '98 buick LeSabere. I am certain that the dealer would have to look at the components and relays and fuses. I had problems with Precision tune mechanics telling me there is nothing wrong with the electrical system, even though I still get a Flashing temp gauge and do not get FULL heat even when it's blasted to 90ºf . [Precision Tune got heat on the windshield and floor.] Moreover, the car is possessed with glitches; I am not getting heat on the windshield and the floor is not hot enough to warm the cabin.

A/C only from center vent. Heat from side vents and floor vents.


sounds like the blend motor from hot to cold is stuck open half way allowing both temps to come into the car.

When turned to defrost, no air comes out of vents to windshield. Air only comes out of vents in dash and floor. I have taken apart compartment behind glovebox and it appears that a glued lever has given...


The vent flap foam lining has come loose and needs to be removed or reglued . A spray on contact adhesive works best , don't glue the flap to the vent casing.
