If damper doors in duct work are vacuum actuated I would suspect a vacuum leak. As you drive the vacuum increases enough to operate the damper doors and you start feeling the heat. Just a thought.

Could be a bad blower motor. If it doesn't run you'll have air flow being pushed through the vents when you're moving but nothing when standing still. HTH. -Jim

Does the blower motor have it's own fuse? Start with the simple things.

Oh ok. Your blower is not working. Sorry jumped the gun a little. Yes you should be able to locate a fuse for the blower motor.

Karl, Easy fix. You need to add more coolant. Done! Peter
