Call the dealer. There is a campaign for heat loss. Warranty is extended for 10 years/ 120,000 miles. Bulletin #11135
Here is a brief description.
On some 2006 model year Chevrolet Equinox and Pontiac Torrent vehicles, the Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) System may not operate as designed due to a fracture of the HVAC temperature valve. If this occurs, the blower motor speed and mode selection (floor, vents, defrost) will continue to function; however, heated air will not be available.
Special Coverage Adjustment
This special coverage covers the condition described above for a period of 10 years or 120,000 miles (193,000 km), whichever occurs first, from the date the vehicle was originally placed in service, regardless of ownership.
Dealers are to install a temperature valve shaft sleeve onto the temperature valve. The repairs will be made at no charge to the customer.
For vehicles covered by Vehicle Service Contracts, all eligible claims with repair orders on or after May 31, 2012, are covered by this special coverage and must be submitted using the labor operation codes provided with this bulletin. Claims with repair orders prior to May 31, 2012, must be submitted to the Service Contract provider.
Hope the info helps you out.
