Chevy Malibu

How do you fix an air conditioning problem where most of the air gets directed to the floor vents instead of the main vents and defrost vents in a 2000 Chevrolet Malibu?

When you adust the switch on your dash to direct the heated or cooled air you are actually switching vaccum to vaccum servos that open and close the doors within your heating/cooling system. If you drop your glove box door you can see behind it to witness this happening. You may need to remove some of the plastic dash covers also which is easy to do.You may have a bad vaccum line, vaccum switch or if they are all working, you may have a broken door within the system.

The vents are controlled by vaccuum from the intake manifold. Check for a split rubber vac. hose on the manifold- Hope that helps.

It means nothing, but is instead the last name of the founder of the company. Chevrolet comes from the man who founded Chevy, Louis Chevrolet.

You either have a bad selector switch or a bad vacuum hose at the rear of the engine.

I had a Chevy van of this vintage and I found a vacum hose leak in the controls that would make the heater/defrost door default too defrost open. lisining carefully under dash or under hood may pinpoint leak.

With older vehicles this was easy, because it just meant that a cable needed to be adjusted. However in newer vehicles even with manual controls the parts are often motorized now. Best option, take to a dealer so they can fix the control valve. It's moved by a small servo type system that can sometimes become jammed. (Debris/breakage as it's plastic etc.) GM has used this system for air flow direction control for over twenty years now.

Every air conditioning company is different. Most companies will come on a Saturday for an appointment but not a Sunday. Air conditioning units can really help save money over all because you're cooling the whole house instead of several different rooms.

Most air conditioning systems on the market today do not get rid of unwanted odors, instead many absorb the smell. However, if this becomes an issue there are many inexpensive ways to fix this problem. Regular cleaning of the air conditioning unit is one way to prevent odors from happening.

Many new cars today use electronic actuators to control the doors that channel the air where you want it. Sounds like one of yours is broken, that's the clicking noise you are hearing, and keeping the air channeled to the defrost instead of moving it where you want.

Any kind of electric fans will use far less energy than air conditioning.

The a/c kicks in when u turn the defroster do dry up the air. Eliminating humidity aids in getting rid of the fog

Low vacuum, an external leak, or a leaking vaccum check valve are the only causes.Low vacuum, an external leak, or a leaking vaccum check valve are the only causes.

You could open the windows instead of turning on the air conditioning, or make it so that the air is not blowing as much and it not so cold.

Telemachus, son of Odysseus, came to Eumaeus instead of going directly home because Athena directed him to do so. This is because Odysseus is there in disguise, and Athena is trying to help all three men.
