Ok...this is an intersting problem, as if it is happening the way that you say....how does it get the heat in the first place.......as it tkes 2-3 minutes for the engine to warm up to normal operating temperature.......i would check first that when engine is warm or hot...turn engine off and feel both the top and bottom radiator hoses and they should be the same temp...next feel at the 2 heater hoses going in behind the firewall...again, should both be hot...if one is cold or colder than the other, this will be a blocked heater core....or internal engine.......aqlso it could be the cause of the blend-door which mixes the hot air and cold air, as you change the temp of the air that you want on the dial......let me know what you think

    it usually takes about 5 minutes after I heat it up for it to blow 5 seconds of air all the hoses are the same temp and so are the ones going into the firewall about the blend door are these vaccum controled and are they hard to get to
    Thank You for your help

    No. It is operated by an electric motor. But your problem may not be limited to the temp blend door motor. We also had problems with something in the heater box called a secondary stratification door. It works together with the blend door itself. Sometimes it would get warped and start hanging up. The solution is to replace the door with a revised door. It is also possible that you have an electrical problem in the heater blend door motor control circuit. I hope this helps.....!!!

My heater blows hot for a couple minutes then turns cold. After turning it off for a few minutes and back on, it blows hot then goes cold again.


LET YOUR CAR WARM UP FIRST!! or you risk the chance of over heating and casuing engine damage. start your car let it warm up for 5 to ten minutes and then try the heat. also when you start you should NEVER have heat on right away. the heat that you feel comes from the engine. and if the engine is cold and you are trying to heat it up it will put stress on the engine and over heat. ALL cars have to wait for their heat. that's why you see peoples car running in the morning with no one in it. so when they do get in it they have heat. heat will not work until the engine is warm.

When you turn on the heat--hot air blows out for a few minutes than it blows out cold air.What could cause this????? 2002 chrylser sebring convertible.


low coolant level can cause this condition, when the engine is cold, check your coolant level. if it is full you may have a bad head gasket, have that checked by your favorite repair shop

2002 audi a4 1.8t heat problem.


most likely a air bubble in your system. get it up to temp open up your reservoir use something that will fit in the opening and put coolant into it rev engine up a bit until you see bubbles coming up. when you did the engine did you replace cooling system parts like t-stat or water pump? purging the system of air will take a little while good luck hope that helps

Heater blows cold air.


heater cores clog in taurus. way to know is this--engine fully hot--heat on reach down to the fire wall and grab hold of one of the heater hoses where it hooks to the core--one should be real hard to keep hold of because its that hot. If the other is close to the same the core is not clogged. But if the other is cold to the touch its clogged. You can remove the hoses and shoot garden hose water in one side or the other and break it loose usually

Intermitten AirConditioning


Sounds like there is either

1. Too much freon in there

or

2. Not enough freon in there.

Freon (R) being freon or low CFC equivalent.

Sounds like the system is working fine, then the condensor or compressor gets too cold and freezes up (or gets WAY too hot). when you turn the A/C off, the system has time to stabilize and return to a more 'normal' condition.
