The most common problem that it sounds like you are having is that the cooling fan is not coming on. Have you checked to make sure your electric cooling fan is coming on?

Check your coolant level when engine cold, low level coolant does not circulate very well at idle and will cause poor heating,at higher RPM water pump turns faster to help circulate.

Souds like it's way low on coolant. The heater will blow cold air when the cooling system is so low that there is no water (coolant) running through the heater core. Then the thermostat opens, it trys to be normal but the system is low so it gets too hot in just a few minutes. If its that low, there must be a leak somwhere.

Troubleshooting a/c


Checking the pressure with the system not working won't tell you anything. A system with just a half pound of freon will read outside air temp on both gauges with the compressor off.
I guess my first few questions would be - - is the compressor running at idle, what are the gauge readings at idle, and is the cooling fan running at idle ?
The two gauge readings at idle with the compressor running should be 30-45 low and 200-250 high.

Why is the heat blowing cold air but at a really high idle it blow hot air for little period of time.the temp of the engine is 195degrees. all the fan controls and the temp control is in the hot position


you could have a couple things going on. possible low coolant? most likely cause as i assume you have checked coolant level would be heater core restricted. to fix this you remove heater hoses and back flush heater core with water. if this does not do it you may have a water pump not circulating at idle but this usually comes with vehicle running hot at idle.

My subaru outback is running hot and the heater doesn't blow hot air only cool


Have you checked the coolant level? If it is low, the car will run hot, and coolant won't flow through the heater core, which will result in a no heat situation. If this isn't the problem, let me know, I will try to help further.

Air conditioner runs hot after a few minutes sitting idle. get cold while driving but goes hot after i stop or come to a red light


Check the belt that is attached to the alternator make sure its not loose. If that's fine then you may be low on freon refrigerant. Have someone check the pressure levels in the high and low side of your system.

2006 Chevy Impala Heater only works when accelorater is depressed


Impalas are known for this issue, where the heating won't work properly.... usually caused by trapped air/bubbles in cooling system or slightly low coolant level. Park car so that the right front side is elevated and remove the coolant OVERFLOW bottle cap (NEVER the radiator cap) while engine is running.. This should allow the trapped air to escape. Also add a bit more coolant if needed.
