Heater blows cold air

This is from Lifewire: If your heater was blowing lukewarm instead of cold, a thermostat that was stuck open would have been a potential cause. Another common problem is when air gets into the cooling system. Since the heater core is often the high point in a cooling system, air can move into it and become trapped.

Dash vents blowing cool air instead of heat

You have problem in 1) Your air flow system have gone down and some plastic valves that opens to cold position or to hot position is broken. Solution: remove panel and check this plastic valves that controls airflow.
2) Your heat salon radiator is very poor and can't blow in all directions. Solution: replace salon heat radiator.
3) Your cooling system don't have good limit of coolant. Solution: fil it to min - max position.
4) Your cooling system isn't bleeding. Solution: make system without air in it.
Hope this will helps.

96 v w passat tdi,a/c blows cool,then warmer,comp.and fans are running,comp,drier andexpansion valve replaced 2 yrs ago

I just had a problem like that on my 96 passat tdi , there is a door on the pasages where the air goes through the heater core and a/c radiator thinghy which gives out the cold,and that litle door which redirects the air between the heather and cooler ,is mad of a sheet metal with big holes on it and covered whit a dense sponge and that sponge is breaking of trough out the years so the air passes through dose holes therefore the air passes by the heather core and the cooler part at the same time so when the car warms up no more cooling because it also heats it up .

you have to take out the shifter cover ,one piece with hand brake ,and front of it there is a air redirecting duct to the foot ,if you remove that you will see that door ,and glue some thing on it ,it is dificult ,it is hard to accces but posible

you can also check or maybe you remember if tini sponge pieces been blown out through the vent grills ,good luck ,

Hey I am haveing a problem with My 2500HD ac system. I have changed The Condensor, evaporator, and the Compressor. I have charged it to the correct levels. It blows cool air, but it doesn't get cold....

Did you change the Receiver/ Drier and the Orfice Tube/ Expansion Valve? The Receiver/ Drier takes moisture out of the system and the Orfice Tube/ Expansion Valve controls the Hot/ Cold air. If that is bad it may not be opening or closing fully which would not let your A/C get as cool as it supposed to.

Heater blows cool air instead of warm air

check your coolant level if it is low top it off. if it is full you may need to change your thermostat to get the temp back to normal. for the heat check the heater control valve to make sure it isn't stuck (heater control valve should be located against fire wall connected to heater hose.

This could be the reuslt of a faulty expansion valve .This valve is where high pressure liquid is converted to a low pressure gas inside the evaporator housing.It has a nitrogen charged "power head" that controls the amount of refrigerant through this valve which could be the reason you have un-stable suction pressures.Important to draw a good vacuum on the system after replacement and install the correct amount of refrigerant.

No cool air when idling..

The refrigerant level may still be to low or the compressor is not working properly.
