    Thanks Shaggyrat,

    This is my first time using this service, I tried to rate your solution but it would not let me. Hope you get this.

    Could it be the sensor to the computer or you feel a/c relay?

    Thanks, I hope you got my email.I appreciate your help.

    Update, More info, the a/c works fine in the mornings (cold engine), then when it after say 10 miles it starts to blow hot air, not warm, like the heater is on, coming home from work same thing I also switch to vent and it felt the same, hot air.

    The gauges seem to work fine it sets in the normal range.

    What should I try?

Engine fan not kicking in at right interval to bring air in so its pulling in hot air threw ducts
or you have a disconnected duct blowing all air out not to right place

guages could be faulty or bad a/c relay

Hello...I have a 07 uplander an the problem is it blows cold air while its idling an warm to hot air when I'm driving...im not to sure of the problem


If you have recently serviced your coolant system or the reservoir tank has gone below the fill(low) mark I expect that you have an air lock in the heater hose.

Usually by keeping the reservoir full the air lock will pass as the engine goes through a few days of engine temperature cycles.

Keep an eye on the temperature gauge during this time and check that the reservoir is full.

Hope this helps?

How do I fix a car that only blows cold air


I doubt it's a heater core.
first look in the radiator and make sure your coolant is full.
not just in the overflow bottle. a bad radiator cap may not allow coolant to refill the radiator . so the radiator can be low and you still have a full overflow bottle

so refill everything and drive it a few miles and see if your heat comes back.

Monte carlo blows cold air and overheats


It really runs hot within a minute of starting ?
An engine that runs hot in a few minutes is often having problems with the water pump or a blockage in the cooling system. The thermostat does not open until 195 degrees which takes 5 or 10 miles of driving.
During that time, the water pump should be circulating coolant in the block and the heater hoses.
A leaking head gasket should be putting extra pressure into the cooling system, and-or dumping coolant into the cylinders which would come out the exhaust pipe. But it should still take a few minutes for the engine to reach the boiling point of 240 degrees.

Buick park ave 1997. Hot air on drivers side, cold on passenger???


either the air duct under the dash is broken or diconnected, or you have a broken or disconnected vacume hose or line. unless you have seperate/digital controls for dr/pass air. if that is the case then you need to replace dr side control unit.

Air Conditioner Not Functioning


It may still be low on freon. It can hold several cans.
High side should be around 250psi and low around 35 or 45psi at idle if system is charged.
If you raise engine speed the low can drop below 20psi and switch off the compressor if the system is low on freon.
Could be a restriction in the system, bad relay, or bad a/c compressor-clutch.

I have a 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 that will blow cold and hot air for only a few minutes. After that is only ambient air temps. It is a 5.7 ltr, automatic with only one set of climate controls. The heater core...


you say it will blow cold and hot air for only a few minutes. You don't say but I assume you mean will blow cold a few min. when turned on AC max , blow hot only a few min. when turned to heater hot. Assuming thats the situation and you say AC charged and shows good on the low side -you should charge the AC to a full charge on the low side will cause problems with the AC air compressor kicking on and off. I suggest while the engine is running and turned to AC cold max watch the AC air compressor clutch to see if it does indeed kick on and off if so charge completely. As far as the heater make certain you coolant is all the way to the top and the best way to do this is when engine is completely cold remove radiator cap and fill completely and completely close cap then fill overflow container just to the cold level. That should fix your problem.
