Is the fan for the AC/Heater working on high speed? if so check for a blocked air intake in front of the windshield, also try recirculate AC position, does that give more airflow?

    ok to access the filter u have to remove the glovebox liner, remove the climate control module and remove a plastic panel (behind glove box) from the side of the heater panel to access it.

2001 Chevy blazer air conditioning blower is throwing very little air. what and how I can get it back to normal?

Is the issue there when using heat and air-con?
If so, then check the blower motor and fan switch for fault.

Check any cabin air filter if fitted for clogging.

If only an issue with hot air flow, then check the heater matrix hasn't bunged up.

If only a cold air flow, then check the air conditioning car evaporator in the cabin for signs of clogging.

Clogging can be more of an issue in pet owner's cars as pet hair readily clogs up these two components in cars fitted with no interior air cleaner element/filter.

Have you had the blend door motor checked to make sure it is working and shutting off the heater core air flow? I would suspect this may be the problem. Also have the pressures checked on the low side they should be about 28 PSI to provide cold air, if they are you have another issue like above.

Check for collapsing radiator hose on suction side of waterpump when motor revs raised above idle.
Check collant resevoir pressure cap is serviceable,
Check coolant system is properly filled - carry out any bleed off procedure specified to clear any air locks.
Check condition of radiator core:-
1) for blockage of air flow to (bugs/grass etc),
2) and internal blockage to coolant flow,

Replace the thermostat, if all above ok.

Idle problem

Try to disconnect the Air Flow Meter. It is the first plug just before the air filter/air intake box. If this improves your situation you will need to source a new or aftermarket Air Flow Meter.

Air Con cuts in and out and so does cooling fan

I have a 2008.5 Mazda 3 GS Sport and when you turn the air flow selector to windows or windows/floor, the air condition will turn on automatically. (Can't turn it off.)
