Question about 1992 Buick LeSabre
This sounds like the blend door actuator. This is a little door in the vent box down under the passenger side dash that opens and closes to change the vent temperature from heat to a/c. It is a little motor that opens the door. It tends to stop working due to the elements that it is in. I hope this helps!!! Thanks!!!

This could be several things. First I would check that the thermostat is not stuck open. This will condition will make the car run cold when it is cold outside.
If this is not the case........and I'm assuming you've already checked that the antifreeze is full, make sure that the heater valve is working. If it is frozen in place then it won't move and won't allow the warm water to circulate through the heater core.
I'm basing my answers on a standard Lesabre. Yours may not have the standard climate control.

You probably have an air bubble and the engine needs to be "burped". I assume you have a 3.8L V6. First take a look in the radiator to make sure it is full. Not just the plastic overflow tank, take the radiator cap off and look. Make sure the engine is cold though. The radiator should be full to the top. The way the system works is that as you drive your car, the water heats up and expands and the check valve in the radiator cap will let the overflow go into the plastic tank when the pressure get over a set amount usually 14-17 lbs. When you shut off your engine, the water will be slowly sucked back into the radiator as the engine cools. If the radiator cap is bad, it may not let the water get sucked back into the radiator and the engine will run hot, you will get air and steam bubbles in the engine, the thermostat will work as long as it has water running by it but if a slug of steam goes by it, it will close. Water will not circulate through the top part of the heater core. "Burping" that engine is a pain but just keep the overflow tank full and check it every time you *start* the car. The air will work itself out. If this does not work it is probably the controls. These are managed by the computer. Try unhooking one of the battery cables and leave it off for at least 20 minutes. When you hook it back up the computers should re-boot. That has solved problems for me with heater, interior lites, power windows, AC, day time running lites, power mirrors, fast idle, rough or slow shifting, CD player, and wipers on GM autos and S-10 PU and Dodge trucks. None of the switches are connected to the device they control anymore. The switch tells the computer to open the window and the computer sends a signal to the window motor. When the computer gets confused strange things will happen or not happen. Things like one headlight stays off etc. I actually had to do it twice on my Bonneville because the first time the AC blower would only work in low and medium. After the second re-boot, everything was fine. Of course you may have to re-set your radio stations.
