Heater problem
2005 Chevy Impala 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 6o, ooo miles

Heat coming in on passenger side but not on drivers side. Put in new thermostat and actuator but neither made a difference. Wondering what else it could be?

If it is building up pressure real fast I would suspect a bad head gasket but most likely its air in the system. Ii let them run until real hot then let it cool down then recheck coolant level and repeat.

The driver side will cool but not blow any heat. Does this side have a fuse or something that controls the heat.

The control panel is not working on driver side I can not find any fuses or relays for that the control panel would need to be replaced and I see you have 56000 miles on it what is your warrenty on your car if it is out of warrenty I can send you the removal and install for replaceing the control panel

I have a 2004 Chevy Impala 62K miles with the same issues and I took my vehicle to the Dealership as I'm not a mechanic and they deteremined it was the temp actuator on the 04 model there are 3 as I was getting warm air on the passenger side;however it just blew cold air on the driver's side. I ended up paying $301.72 just to have this plastic piece replaced. The price on the part alone was $54.88 the labor $213.95.

Good luck, I'm now having other issues with my battery light and a few months ago I just replaced the battery, alternator and at 32K miles the waterpump also went out? I'm not happy with this vehicle.

The heater only blows warm air if the fan is on low. Once the fan is turned up to on high the air turns cold. But putting the blower back on low it will blow warm air.
Even the coolant is only luke warm after running for a long period of time.
Do I need to replace the termastat?
Thanks.

How do I change a termostat in my Impala [3.8 V6].
I am having problems with getting hot air inside either side. After you have drove it and warmed it up you still have no heat. If you shut it off and let it sit for awhile the heat will work. Thats why I think its the termostat. Do you think I might be right?

How is the coolant level first? Make sure you dont have anyother leaks before replacing the thermostat.
The thermostat is located under the throttle body. They can be a pain to get to.

The coolant level is full in both the rad and tank. I haven't found any leaks yet either. Could it be air in the system, and not the thermostat?

Very well could be air thats why I asked if you seen any leaks or if it is low on coolant. If you dont see any, then I would replace the thermostat

Sounds like the mixing doors are stuck closed. Is there a hissing noise that you can hear? Or clicking noise.

With the engine at full operating temp, locate the 2 heater hoses where they go into the firewall and feel them to see if they are both too hot to hold. If they are.

The heat in that vehicle is controlled by a blend door that regulates heated air flow. It is operated by an electric motor/actuator. The problem can be that the actuator is stripped or inoperative or the door itself could be damaged. This is what needs to be determined by examining the actuator and see if it is responding to heat change commands or not.
