'05, 3.8, LS.
I have very good heat at the dash vents when under acceleration. Not so good at floor or wind shield. All points do get air so position control is working good. (not talking about air conditioning here, just heat).
When cruising or just not under acceleration heat output is minimal. Fan speeds are working good.
System has been drained, flushed. New 195 t-stat. Bled air from system.
How do I get hot heat at selected points at all times? (not just under accel).
Thanks to all for any suggestions/help you have. Cool

I think you still have air in the system. I had a buddies mom's bonnie do the same thing. I bled more air out and has worked fine since.

I was thinking (hoping) that maybe the case. Found that the GMC Envoy has a TSB for air bleeding procedures, maybee the imp too? I'll bleed more today. Thanks. Cool

How did it go? If you hear sloshing when you accelerate then yea you need to bleed it more. I've noticed with these cars that you have to pour the coolant in slow and bleed 2-3 times.

Never had a sloshing sound. Have not got back to it yet. This weekend I hope to drain the heater core and put some CLR in there let it sit a bit and flush both ways then fill and see what happens. Once 'Im done I'll post results. Waiting for it to warm up outside. Cool
