#130 of 142 air won't cool on outside air but does on inside
Sep 30, 2012 (12:59 pm)
my 2006 Chevy Impala won't cool on outside air but does on inside recirculated air. It has never worked right. Took it in to the dealer for service when it was still under warranty and was told there was nothing wrong with it and was charged for the service check. It didn't work right then and is worse now. It use to eventually cool down some with outside air but won't at all now. I need to sell it as my husband can no longer drive. It has less than 46,000 miles on it and I can't sell it the way it is. Any ideas what might be wrong, I know if I take it into the dealer it will be a costly bill.
#131 of 142 2008 Chevy Actuator for drivers side

I have a 2008 Chevy Impala LTZ with Dual heat and air controls. The drivers side heater will only blow cold air. I took it to the Chevy dealer and he said it will cost $715.00 to fix. Is this possible? Reading some of the post they are saying $50 part and an hour to fix....

#133 of 142 2005 Impala Heater and Temp up and down
Oct 08, 2012 (6:12 am)
OK... my heat was working yesterday, this morning, nothing. I would get a little bit of heat, then it would turn cold. When I would slow down, the temperature gauge would start to rise, then it would come back down. When I was full speed on the freeway, it would fluctuate a bit, and I'd feel the heat come and go, slow down to street roads and it is going from 1/3 to 3/4 and back. I'm thinking it's the thermostat, any thoughts?

OK... found a leak, not sure what it is, pump maybe. If I can get a picture posted I will.

Hi, my 2006 impala is doing the same thing yours was doing in 2008. How were you able to resolve your problem? Thanks!

Hi Kyle. Never got it resolved. Chevrolet said that was normal.

I brought this new. The switch from floor to defrost stops working. I get no air in the summer to no heat in winter.
Now for the forth time and $489.52 . I am not happy only 23k. I know I will have it back in
because they only calibrated it. Last Chevy in this household.

This just happened to me this morning. I've got a 2005 Imapala LS. I warmed my car up to find it was blowing cold air and the temp guage was near 3/4. When I would give it gas the temp guage would drop to normal (about 1/3) and I would get hot air. When I would coast, the guage would rise and the air would get colder. I bought this car used from a family friend who is a dealer. The car was garage kept, driven a handful of miles a week and meticulously maintained. Really surprised to have this happen.
Anyone find out what exactly makes this happen? Do I need to get it into my mechanic ASAP?
