Does the heat work better when driving then blow cold at idle?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I believe so. When it works it gets very hot.
Buick Mechanic: Dan, ASE Master Technician replied 7 months ago

That issue indicates that you have air in the cooling system. The air could be there because the coolant is low. That could be caused by a leak or simply not being filled over time the coolant can evaporate. You need to fill the coolant up and bleed the air from the cooling system and go from there.

Please let me know if you have any more questions.
Customer satisfaction is my number one goal. Giving a 3 star or higher rating would be appreciated very much. You can do this rating at the box on the upper right hand corner. This will not close our chat session and at no extra charge we will still be able to talk about any other issues you may have for free! Providing a rating is the only way I will receive credit for my work with you. Negative ratings do not result in a refund so If you’re not satisfied with the work we have done so far please respond more and let’s get your question figured out
