I have a 2000 Chevrolet Malibu. Just got it and I have a ventilation problem.

I have no air flow. Can turn the fan on hi and still the air is at an idle flow through the vents. I have got hot and cold air and the fan works as well as all the different vent selections. Something is blocking the air from the fan to the vent openings. What part could this be.

@mrbryden ,Cory, from what you are saying the fan and fan speeds work and vent selection works. I suggest you check the in cabin filters for clogging. You may have to also vacuum out the HVAC plastic ducting in same area with filters removed, as good as you can also. Link below to location and how to access cabin filter and a trouble shooting link in case this is not the problem. Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.

Hi I P faff,

I thought the same thing but, I called GM and they tell me that. That year of Malibu did not have a cabin filter and the owner's manual doesn't lost a cabin filter for it either. So I would say that idea is a bust. Have any other ideas?


@mrbryden , Cory did you view the second link and check those areas.
