CHEVROLET UPLANDER COOLANT PROBLEM

2008 Chevrolet Uplander • 136,000 miles

I have a UPLANDER WHEN THE VAN IS IN IDLE THERE IS NO HEAT. WHEN I START TO DRIVE THE HEAT COMES ON. IF I START THE VAN AND LET IT IDLE FOR A PERIOD SAY 5 TO 10 MINUTES ALL I GET IS COLD AIR. WHY?

Had same problem on my 2007. Paid for coolant & tranny fluid flush & change and am pretty sure I didn't actually get either. Nevertheless, I added what ended up being 1/2 jug of coolant and now it's warm when I get in after 5 minutes. Make sure to use the right stuff though. Orange. Dex-III I think?
