I have a 2014 Cruze ECO. I just recently noticed that when the car is ideling it does not blow out any heat. As long as I am driving about 2500 RPM or more the works fine. In fact while driving down the interstate it got plenty hot and I have to turn it down. Coolant level is normal in the tank. Would this be a thermostat issue or is there a censor that would be causing this. Would air in the system cause this problem.

This is a known "effect" with the 1.4l engine - it is very efficient, so it doesn't waste heat like a big clunky V8.



Try turning the fan speed down when the engine is idling, this will slow the rate at which heat is pulled from the heater core, and keep things a bit warmer.
