I know exactly what your problem is....its called a AIC valve also known as a Automatic Idle Control Valve and they can be bought from most any parts store...price range 75 to 200 bucks and you can change it out yourself as it sits right on the top of the engine compartment.... its small and it has one elec cord to it I think.....this will fix your car from stall but you will need to get someone with a diag computer to reprogram your computer for max performance.....it is not immediatly nessesary to do the programming for the replacment to fix the problem but it is something you will want to get done.

Not sure if this will help you folks, but this is an ongoing issue with our MPV. Pretty much every time it goes into the shop, it comes back with no heat. The solution for us is the water valve. See this link
For whatever reason, the tech always like to fool with this valve...

What are the vents under the driver seat and the passenger seat for? Heat or A/C?

those vents should get some flow whenever you have the front selector on one of the floor settings, which would usually be heat, but could be A/C

It blows cold, anytime I want heat on my feet being the driver. The passenger behind, complains about the cold. I am going to change the cabin filters as well, since the air flow is weak.

There is a TSB about the blend door, that would sound like yours needs that work done.

How/ where would I find such a TSB, which is "technical service bulletin" right?

MPVClub shows it as number 07-001/04R, which you can look there or elsewhere on the 'net. Another possibility is number 07-004/04, especially if you work done on the vehicle just before you noticed it happening.

I had a tune-up done about 2 yrs. ago and we were on the way home i think and the fan sounded like it died about half power. We asked them about it but they didn't know anything and were going to charge us to dig into it. We just lived with it, but it was hot and we didn't notice the heat issues with the floor vents until it was too late. I'm going to change the cabin filter and also look for the valve. Thanks for the advice.

We have a 2000 mpv and the heat recently stopped working. Stills blows cold air no smell no foggy windows but there is a loud fan noise under the hood like when you are running ac. Any ideas?
