I had the same problem. Vacuum leak was the problem, but in my case it was due to a broken REAR a/c-heater switch ON THE DASH. Expensive fix, but it solved the problem.

AC is only blowing through the defrost vents in the dashboard?


I think your problem is the head unit that selects where the air comes out ie. Face, floor, defrost, or hi-level face and floor. If that's not working then it will not let you switch location that you want the air to come out.

Blend door mixes hot and cold, not a distribution control. Look for loose or dislodged vac lines... Heater designed to fail in defrost mode.

Selection lever does not move to AC vent or floor vent only to the defrost. AC compressor does not kick in when AC is selected.
Vacuum level is at 18 instead of 23.
Any suggestions.

2000 chevy astro cargo van. the heat registers on the gage but little comes out and only out defrost. thermostat????


If it is blowing hot air out of the defroster and not out of the heater vents then the door that directs the heat from the defroster isn't working properly it is blocking the heat from going to the heater vents. Also check the cold air door. It sounds like it isn't closing all the way to shut off the cold air and not letting the hot air pass.

98 Olds LLC - AC works but fan air does not blow


If you have a late model GM car and the system is controlled electronically the blend door actuator becomes weak. When this situation occurs it will not move the air direction door inside of the heater/air conditioner plenum. in your case not to the vents Replace the actuator with new and recheck the system. i hope this helps
