Question about 2007 Toyota Tacoma
Last week my 2007 Tacoma began to have cabin heating problems. When the cabin heat/cool dial is set to heat you hear what sounds like a bafffle closing that then chokes off all air flow. When the dial is turned to cool the air flow opens up and blows cold air. Turn the dial back to hot and you hear a swosh sound as something closes and blocks the warm air flow. Very ocassionllly the flow remains open at the hot position and warm air flows. The coolant system was recently topped off. Thanks for any help on this!

are you sure thermostat is the one cutting off the compressor?..you know that the temperature of the cabin is still not cold.
there are pressure switches that could be triggered to turn off the compressor.
observe the compressor and see if it would engage again and observe how long on and how long off.
is the condenser fan running?
let me know,
tnx 4 using fixya,

the air distribution switch controls the air distribution and the fan, distribution switch in the 0 (straight down position) will be off. Car movement forces air into teh body, but with teh fan off there will be no air when the car stops. Does the fan run when the distribution switch is in any other position? it should respond to the speed settings of the fan switch.
There is a vacuum bottle accumulator that assists the distribution switch, sometimes this gets disconnected and the switch settings don't work.
Do you hear any noises if you turn the distribution knob while the car is running? suction noises, or flaps opening?
If not, then you likely have a vacuum problem (check for a white bottle in left front wheel housing, except convertible -> under the spare wheel, tank should have one or two vacuum lines connected to it (one for convertible). A disconnected or leaky line is the most likely cause.
Possible other causes are faulty air distribution switch; burned out fan motor; inoperative vacuum solenoid motors controlling air distribution flaps.
But check the vacuum accumulator first, if under the spare wheel, the lines are easily dislodged.
