okay with your car , initially when you first start the car when the engine is still cold do you find that the A/C is cold ?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
No it has to running for awhile then it works and then stops blowing cold intermittently
Expert:  Kevin Bourcier replied 5 months ago.

at anytime do you hear the condensor cooling fan turn on ?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Fan is working fine
Expert:  Kevin Bourcier replied 5 months ago.

okay so you hear it cycling on and off while the A/C ic operating ? Is your car equipped with manual or Automatic A/C system ?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Manual, more info the same thing happens with the heater
Expert:  Kevin Bourcier replied 5 months ago.

okay do you have any tools ? Can you try a " Quick Test " ?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
No just need some options and an educated guess as to what is happening
Expert:  Kevin Bourcier replied 5 months ago.

when the engine is already warm can you pinch off the 2 heater hoses and see what happens .

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Not to worry I take to my mechanic thanks
Expert:  Kevin Bourcier replied 5 months ago.

the most likely cause of the issues is the Water valve . it stops the flow of engine coolant through the heater core . It is most likely intermittently not switching from hot to cold . this would explain why you are having problems with both the A/C and the Heating .Thanks for using Just Answer . I am happy to have been able to assist you today . Kevin . :-)
