#69 of 202 problems with heater
Dec 11, 2009 (12:13 pm)
Hey my name is ramon and I just bought a 1998 oldsmobile intrigue and since its been getting colder out I realize I have a problem.....
When I turn my heater on the driver side gets super cold but the passenger side stays warm.... I tried turning the temp up and down and nothing works...
All the passenger side will do is blow the same hot air temperature.
Can someone please tell me what could the problem be??? I would love to have heat for the winter

Could be lots of stuff. Coolant level might be low. Cooling system may not be properly bled. Actuators for the HVAC might not be working. Vacuum hoses under the dash might be disconnected. Ignition switch might be bad. Anything in the electrical system not working? Where is the coolant temp gauge needle?

Try to be a little more descriptive with what has been going on with the car. Did you change the thermostat to fix the heater or for some other reason? Did you properly bleed the cooling system?

the only way get heat in the car is when i turn on the defrost and the heat only comes out on the passenger side vents while only cold air comes out of the driver side.. i changed the thermostat to try to fix the heater thinking that was the problem. it wasnt. how do you bleed the cooling system?

Ramon, is the coolant temperature gauge showing the car is heating up properly? Also do you have a manual or automatic climate control system?
Unforutnately, I don't know the correct way to bleed the 3.8L engine. Maybe someone can chime in.
If that checks out, you could have an issue with the HVAC actuators which 99intrigue00 mentioned.

#77 of 202 No air flow from front heater/defrost/ac

Hi. I have a 2005 Chevy Tahoe and thier is no air flow from the front heater/defrost and ac. The rear workes just great. I have checked all the fuses and took the blower motor out and they looked and worked just fine. The guages also look like they are working. Would anybody know what else it could be and how would it get fixed. Thank you for your time and help!
