Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. I wouldn't change the thermostat. Sounds to me that you are low on freon. Have you tried to add some to your vehicle?

Does your car overheat too?
If so, you could have a faulty thermostat, an air pocket in your cooling system or maybe even a leak somewhere. My truck's heat would only work while I was driving, then stopped working altogether while the engine started to overheat. I changed the thermostat, then the heat would blow hot/cold/hot/cold, I didn't realize you had to bleed the air out of the system after changing the thermostat. I did that and now the heater and engine run great.

Air conditioning blows warm at idle cool when driving


hello there:
you may have a blockage in the system and then again it could also be low on freon and may just need to recharge and i would suggest taking it to an a/c repair shop and have them do a diagnosis on the a/c system it should not be more than about $150 for them to check system and recharge the system unless you have other problems hope this helps you out please leave a review thanks sincerely D.Jones

'04 Chev Silverado 1/2ton Heater only blows warm air when motor is at high RPM. When I stop and its just idling, it blows cool air.


It sounds like your thermostat may be stuck open, with the engine working hard the temperature of the engine comes up thus the warm air, but just at an idle the thermostat is letting the coolant circulate and not holding it their until it reaches a warm enough temp. You are most likely going to need to change the thermostat.

You might have air in the lines, go ahead and find out if there is a bleeder valve. If so then bleed it after warmed up but watch out that steam is hot.

Heat blows cold when car is idling


You have an air pocket in the cooling system. To bled it out you will have to park vehicle on an incline or jack up the front end untill the radiator cap is higher than the heater core. The remove radiator cap and run engine until warm then hold rpm to about 1200 rpm's and top off coolant level until you have no more bubbles.
