Question:
2001 Chevrolet venture. When I turn the AC on in the front heat blows out in the front while ac blows out in the front. When I turn the heat on in the front ac blows in the back. What is the problem and how can I fix it?

Answer:
You either have a control head problem, or more likely an actuator problem. There are doors inside your heater case that control the flow of cool and hot air to the proper places when you select them on the control head. If there is a problem with one of those door actuators, it usually results in the wrong delivery of air, either to the wrong vents, or the wrong temperature.

Luckily, when there is a problem like this, it will store a trouble code. You would need to get the Venture van looked at by a reliable technician, preferably at a Chevrolet dealership. They would be able to diagnose the exact problem and fix it for you.
