Question about 2003 Pontiac Aztek
When the fan is running the amount of air that comes out decreases when the temperature dial is turned from cold to hot. Pulled the lower dash apart. It appears the controls are moving when I change the temp as well as the position for air flow (defrost, heat, vent, etc....)
Heater core may be restricted with excessive dust/dirt and debris, not allowing sufficient airflow to pass thru

There is a mix damper inside your duct that controls the heat over heater core and ac evaporator that to your floor and one to your defrost. it is probable an electric actuator, that is not functioning properly. If yu can locate it and manually move it, you might have to remove the actuator motor first, you should be able to figure out your problem, I hope this helps! merry Christmas!

Can you hear anything moving in heater when you move the switch to other settings? If not then the blend door is not moving to redirect air flow. There is three things that could cause this, 1 the control switch is bad or 2 the blend door acturator is bad, and 3 linkage for the door has come unhooked or broke, most likely its #1 or #2. First you need to find the blend door acturator and test light the wires to it, there should be 3, 1 hot with key on 2 only hot with switch moved, and 3 ground. If you got power from wires than the acturator motor is bad, if no power switch is bad.

Had the same problem with 03 Montana and it was the actuator assemble. It controls the hot and cold air and controls all of the other functions....defrost, floor etc...

Physically look in the radiator under the cap when cool, for coolant level, and check the valve in the cap for sticking. If air is present in the radiator it can't get out, and more coolant can't get in,(from the overflow). Either clean the cap or replace it and check that it is the CORRECT cap.
Radiator fins dirty, clean with a strong stream of water, not high pressure water.
Radiator clogged, have it boiled out, or replace.
Thermostat stuck open or shut, replace it.
Water pump worn out, can no longer move enough coolant, replace it.
Fan shroud broken or missing....
Electric Fan(s) not working, Check the fan, relay, fuse and engine temperature sensor's.
Belt driven fan, belt slipping, fan clutch is bad, fan blades have flattened out.
Air dam under front bumper is gone, loose, or broken. It actually has a purpose other than scraping on the driveway or curbs. It forces air up into and thru the condenser and radiator. If it's loose, airflow can actually push it out of place making it useless or blocking the airflow. Along with that, there may also be a plastic piece attached to the bottom of, and wraps up behind the bumper. If it's loose, airflow can actually push it out of place blocking the airflow. Simply reattach it with 4 or 5 screws.
Also, if the vehicle has A/C and electric fans, one fan is dedicated to the A/C and should come on almost the instant the A/C is turned on. The engine fan will run even with the key off, that is normal. The system is trying to cool itself. Hope this helps.
