Question about 2005 Chevrolet Silverado

1 Answer

My AC is blowing out hot air. It has been happening on and off again for a couple of years. Turning it off and back on again has always worked before but this time nothing helps. It finally seems to be stuck for good. How do I replace the air blend door actuator on my 2005 chevrolet silverado 1500?

    If I remember right the truck was at the dealership for the famous clunking noise in the steering column and they gave me an over $1000.00 estimate to perform this work. Is hard pulling off the dash, I fairly mechanically inclined but would definitely need the manual. How much is the part? Assume other mechanics other than the dealership can work on it.

This problem is caused by either a sticking air temperature control blend door or a defective electric blend door actuator, u must pull the dash to replace either part, a factory repair manual and a high level of repair skill is required, the job will take about 12 hours with a manual.

AC works for about 300 miles then stops and blows hot air. New AC compressor and freon charge. After sitting for a while it will again blow cold.


I think you have a similar problem to mine. At highway speeds is when it happens. And it is not blazing hot? Right?
Your evaporator is freezing up - as this happens the ice surrounding it prevents the flow of air over the evaporator coils and the result is warm air coming out of the registers. If I turn off the AC for about ten minutes and let unit melt the cold air comes back. This does not occur in stop and go driving.
I combat it by either running the fan at a higher than normal setting to increase air flow over the evaporator and then turning off when it gets too cold, OR using the air control to allow warmer outside air to enter into unit at highway speeds to prevent freezing up.
Newer cars have more sophisticated sensors and controls to prevent this but some older vehicles are subject to this anomaly.
Since it works fine under normal conditions I have not messed around with the freon level in system. If you release a tad of refrigerant the low pressure switch will shut off the compressor sooner and help minimize ice buildup. Good luck.

My AC worked great until last year and then after a power steering hose leak was discovered, the ac until stopped blowing cold air. I took it and paid 75.00 to have it recharged with coolant and it worked...


My air conditioner started blowing hot air last summer. I put coolant in it and didn't run it until the beginning of summer this year (2011). All of a sudden it started working again. Sometimes it blows hot but if I keep it running full blast the coolness comes back. I don't know why this happened.

My 2001 chevy cavalier was serviced last year for over heating and the a/c unit not blowing cool air. It has a new radiator but the fan has stopped turning and the a/c blows hot only. Ive tried re-charging...


might just be a bad engine coolant temp sensor , it tells car computer engine temperature and computer controls fans , as for recharging a/c , did you pull system under vacuum ? to check for leaks ? vacuum also helps remove air to get a better charge because air expands

2002 New VW Beetle is only blowing hot air out of vents even when set on cool. I was driving and I made a turn at an intersection and all of a sudden the cool vent air turned to hot air like I had the heat...


On the bottom of the air unit is the lever that changes temps. It likes to fall out of place.I propped mine back with a piece of half-inch copper pipe a couple of years ago.Remove glove box then panel on front side of console to access.

The low pressure is in the grill by the radiator. The issue your having with it cutting off then on is easily fixed by removing some of the AC coolant. Any ideas on why the rear AC is not working? Is there a seperate fuse for the rear AC? It just blows warm air.

2001 Saturn L200 heat only blows high. A/c out.


Sounds like a possible broken/ripped/disconnected air line (hose) to the compartment.

AC blows hot air intermittanty


On the passenger side of the engine compartment near the radiator you will see a coolant control valve that has heater hoses running from it to the heater core inside vehicle.This is probably going bad.You can clamp off the hoses with some pliers while it is acting up and see if this stops the heat.If it does then it is probably bad.
