No heat at idle in 2006 Impala. Had air bled out of the hose going to/out of heater core 3 YEARS IN A ROW. Mechanics can't find leaks. Don't know what else they checked if anything. What it the real...

The answer is no chevy couldn't care less about safty issues I could tell you storys there fuel systems.But getting back to your problem you say you don't have any leaks at least that you can see.Try this start vehicle and let it worm up to opperateing temp. Put your hands anound bolth haeter hoses going into and comeing out of the heater core if coolant is flowing through the core they bolth will be hot. If olny one is hot that means you have no flow. Some vehicles have whats called mixing valve it could be vacuum or cable opperated or even electricaly opperated but it will be in the heater lines before the coolant gets to the heater core to regulate you amount of hot coolant enters the core. It could also be a problem with the core being pluged or restriced however 06 is kind of new to have this problem because your coolant is good for at least 5 years but i would inspect the entire cooling system anywhy.Im vary formilar with systems but i haven't worked on a 2006 impala so i can't give you exact insturitions however what i have discribed is standard for all cooling systems and if coolant can't flow through the heater core you will have no heat hope this can help you

My 2006 charger 3.5 is leaking coolant but only somtimes is it a sign of water pump malfunction no indications on the gauges but car seems to be running hot

this is most likely the water pump if it is leaking at front of engine, the water pump is under the large timing belt cover and driven by the timing belt, so both are changed at the same time.

Charger 2006 ac not working blowing hot air

HI. Here is a complete check list that will help you trouble shot thsi issue. You will find the problem in one or more of these areas stated below.

1. Check Drive Belts - The air conditioner utilizes a drive belt that supplies power to rotate the compressor, which is basically a refrigerant pump. If the belt fails the compressor has nothing to drive it, inspect and replace as needed to restore operation. If belt is intact proceed to the next step.

2. Check for Compressor Clutch Engagement - Turn the air conditioner to the "on" position and set controls to the coldest setting. Start the engine and allow to idle. Then open the hood and inspect the clutch at the front of the compressor, is it turning? "Engaged" if so, the system has enough refrigerant to activate. If the system is low on refrigerant it will not work properly. In this case an air conditioner recharge kit is needed to recharge the system. If the system is low on refrigerant it could cycle on and off, making a ticking noise. If the compressor clutch is not turning proceed to next step.

3. Inspect for Refrigerant Leaks - If the system has a large leak and no refrigerant remains it will not activate. First test system for a static pressure charge, with the engine off attach an ac gauge to the low side pressure port and check the state of charge. Depending on outside temperature there should be between 50 psi and 80 psi. (Cool and warm). A refrigerant leak detector is needed to inspect for leak, but if you do not have a leak detector there is an alternative method. The air conditioner system is designed to run with oil suspended in the refrigerant to lubricate the system. Check for oily residue outside the system by inspecting all hoses, compressor, condenser, evaporator or receiver drier and replace any component that has failed.

4. Inspect Fuses - Check under dash panel and under hood power distribution center. Replace failed fuses as needed, recheck system. If the new fuse fails when reinstalled a short circuit is present and requires diagnosing with a wiring schematic, follow circuits to locate short, repair as needed and recheck system.

5. Check Temperature Control Vents - The vents inside your car are controlled by a cable, electrical servo or vacuum servo. If the temperature blend door is not functioning properly it will cause warm air from the heater to exit the vents. To check this start the car and allow the engine idle, next turn the blower motor speed on low, switch the temperature control from warm to cold while your ear is close to the vents. You should hear the door move inside the heater box as it swings from open to close. If not, insect for a vacuum leak or a shorted motor in the servo, repair the leak or replace the servo motor.
