The heat can be turned up all the way and while you sit in driveway or idle at a light or in traffic it blows cold, but while you are driving weather its 25 or 50 it blows hot. The coolant is new and full and I see no leaks from hoses or other areas but that dosent mean their not there. I was wondering if it was thermastat or waterpump. Maybe some other bigger problem? Any idea appreciated.
Do you

I would lean more toward a clogged heater core.
Make sure the coolant level is correct.

I just took my 2007 Uplander in for the same problem and it found out that the system was air locked. Once they got all the air out of the coolant system, the coolant was able to flow. Now we have HEAT! They also checked the doors inside the duct work to make sure they open and close properly. This can be done with a scanning tool.

Had the same issue with our 2007 Uplander. You need nee head gaskets. There is air getting into the cooland system. This all happened to me in the last few weeks. We are also getting a new tanny and rad because coolant leaked into the transmission. Good luck with yours.

It will do that if the water pump impeller is on its way out-

How do you know if all of the air is out of the system and how do you go about getting it out?
