Hey all. Had the same problem as all of you since last winter. Heat on passenger side and cold on driver side. Was getting the 5 second burst of hot air on driver side when I turned it on. Took apart the dash and I checked all of the motors to see if they were working. The hot/cold air motor is actually inside the HVAC system so we stuck a camera down it to see that it was working. Finally, I just decided it had to be heater core. Took it apart today and the heater core was full of rust!! I was scared to replace the heater core because everyone said it was such a hard job. I did it myself and had everything put back together in less than 4 hours! If anyone needs some help let me know. An $80 heater core plus your own labor is a lot better than an $80 heater core plus a mechanics $900 labor(what I was quoted at anyway)
