Question about Chevrolet 2008 Chevrolet Uplander LT

1 Answer

We have a 2008 Uplander that shows it's overheating for awhile and then bumps back down to normal after about 10 mins. It only does this in cold weather, seldom when the temp is above 35 and n

Mechanic has changed coolant and recommends back flushing the heater core. We were told that it is safe to drive now with the new coolant.

Volume is gone (except for a clicking noise)

Check whether the mute function is ON or not. If not, the muting section circuit inside has the fault.

2008 Chevy Uplander has 21,000 miles. Nno heat from rear heater at idle. Disconnected hoses and flushed, water flowed good. Reconnected hoses and still no heat. Raised idle to 2000 rpm and got good heat....

Uplanders with the 3.9 engine are prone to no heat at idle speeds. Probably weeping head gasket. Air bubble trapped. Dealers will remove rad cap and let it sit at about 25 deg. angle for a couple hours. Good for awhile.
