Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

If there is a fault with the recirculation actuator on the heater box this can cause air flow intake to be restricted in some cases and can cause this issue here.I have seen the recirculation actuator fail before needing replaced to correct this fault here.If you can post the year of this model here let me know as this will help as I may be able to locate some more info on this actuator and heater/ac system.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
