you MAY experience/hear the following
  • Warm air coming from vent when AC is off - Maybe that explains why it takes so long to cool the car down. Where does the outside air come from? The exhaust manifold?
  • Noise that sounds like a water pump bearing going bad coming from transmission
  • Clunk when shifting from first to second under moderate acceleration

Unfortunately with gm and the last two i will probably get "cannot duplicate" when i bring it in tomorrow to have the seat fixed.

with the first, I could not duplicate it this morning. I will try driving with the ac off this afternoon if cool enough. then tomorrow i will turn the ac on for a few minutes then off and see what happens. i wonder if the sun is baking the air inlet so it is so hot you get warm air coming in.

Not sure if this is whats causing your warm air or not... but if you don't turn the dial to recurculate, warm air (or cool depending on outside temps) will flow through the vents.

I haven't had the A/C problem and I ride with my windows down in the evening (when it finally gets cool enough). I make a point to turn the A/C off when I do this because I hate how condensation forms on the trim panels around the central vents; I wish they had insulated the back of those panels to prevent this but I guess there's more humidity on the AL Gulf Coast than in Sydney.

I haven't experienced the other problems either.
