Have you checked the water level in the radiator system could be an air lock or thermostat stuck open. Check your heater hoses are getting warm but be careful or have someone check for you.

The actuators run off of a vacuum system (most likely) and they might have inadvertently left the connection off for the back system. I would ask them to recheck the connections for the back system for a leak of vacuum or just not connected.

Low coolant light flashed stopped topped reservoir read label wrong saw dont fill engine damage can result....got back on road an check engine popped on pulled over wound up losing two or three litres out...


Your most likely problem is a bad head gasket.If you used the bleeders to remove the air from the vehicle and your are sure you got all the air out and you still have no heat and the coolant keeps coming out the over flow bottle.Then the head gasket is bad.Usually the rear head head.But I have also had the front head go bad.The best is to replace both gaskets.You should also have the heads checked to make sure they are not warped if the engine ran hot.Hope this helps.Good luck.Let me know if you have anymore questions.

I have the 2001 GC ES with dual automatic climate control. The heat works in the front, but blows ice cold in the back, at all speeds, no matter how long vehicle has been moving. I'm starting to wonder if...


If you have heat in the front the engine cooling system is operating normally (waterpump ok) If the rear hoses were rusted out you would have front issues too due to collant loss. I sounds like either the rear controller has a problem with the temperature door actuator or an electrical problem going to the actuator. They sometimes have a heater valve which shuts off coolant flow to the rear heater core. It is located in the engine, where the rear hoses split to the rear. They are usually vacuum operated, possibly the valve or vacuum issue, check there. Feel the rear hoses under the van with the rear heat on. One should be hot and the other warm (this would indicate the heater core and valve are functioning). If the rear fan works the fuse is ok for the controller.

The heat in the front of my 2001 Windstar blows cold air but the rear heat works fine.


The blend door actuator is the most likely cause. It is on the front of the heater box under the dash and looks like the picture below and #14 on the system exploded diagram. Remove the actuator, plug it back into it's cable, turn the key on and change the temperature setting to see if the actutor turns. If not, replace the actuator.

Does not.over heat runs great blower blows fine, fan speed switch is fried.so.it only runs on high but every now.and again it'll blow heat then strait back to cold. The temp on the car.stays perfectly...


First the switch this may not be bad switch it sounds like a bad blower resistor, this is what controls the speeds, the loss of heat may be low coolant level or a bad blend door actuator, depending on the heat/ac system in the van it may also be a bad vacuum leak in the engine compartment, some models use actuators to control system and some use vacuum, if the system looses vacuum the door will close until vacuum is restored, hope this helps.

2000 Astro van - vent door that controls flow of A/C to blow out of dashboard vents does not function. A/C and heat work. All other pneumatic actuators seem to work. Repalced the specific vent door...


The problem is a 1/8 diameter hose that runs from the front of the engine over the top and connects at the rear of engine on the drivers side. It is a vacuum hose #GM15967970 It cost about $6.22 at your GM dealer. Hope this helps Bill. My E-Mail is Uflyups@aol.com
This was posted on a problem with a 2002 astro, I do believe it is the same fix. A simple vacuum hose, It is difficult to route through the engine
