AC and heater run from the same belt?
« on: June 14, 2013, 02:46:21 PM »
So end of winter my heater would only heat up when I was driving. At idle it would just blow cool air. Then this spring I turned on my AC and it won't blow any cold air. Made me curious if it's a belt issue and if they run off the same? Anyone have any suggestions on what it would be?

Heater is not run off a belt; the water pump is run off of the timing belt, which you cannot see.   Your coolant is low.

AC is run off a belt, but I'm guessing it is low on freon.

A qualified mechanic is in your future.
