Hey guys,

I've already made an appointment with a GM dealer, but I was just wanting to run something by you guys to make sure there is a problem and this isn't normal.

For the last couple of days my heater hasn't been coming out hot. When I turn it on, (already fully warmed engine) the air comes out at full temperature for about 5 seconds, then it comes out mildly warm for about a minute, and then it comes out cold (almost as if it's A/C). I am new to Minnesota from Arkansas, and I'm not used to the very cold temperatures. I was just wanting to make sure this is abnormal before I took it in to the dealer. It is 5°F (-15°C) outside.

Thanks.

Check your coolant level immediately. It's probably low.

If it is, don't keep driving the car until you can get some in it.

Keep an eye on it once filled. Leaks are fairly common, but the two most common sources are the line from the expansion tank to the "T" fitting on the drivers side of the engine, and the water pump itself on the passenger side

If it continues to lose it quickly, yes. Definitely coming out somewhere. There's an extended warranty on the water pump/outlet if you're already outside of the 5 year powertrain warranty.
