    HoT by pedals!

    Whenever I drive like for an hour or so really hot air starts to come out near my pedals and makes my right foot hot as a bitch. What might this be? (and no the heat isnt turned or and its not set to blow out on the feet)

    Do you have longtubes? Longtubes will make the floor very hot.

    Or you could have a hole in your firewall were a grommet is suppossed to be there and its gone so it blows the hot air from underhood in to your footwells.

    Your solenoids that control you air conditioner might be broken as well.

    No, I do not know everything!

    I know you said your heat isn't on or anything, but try turning the temperature knob to cold. even if vent, floor, ac, etc. isn't on sometimes hot air will still blow through from the engine bay.

    thats what i was thinking. if the knob is turned to warm but the fan isnt on the car still gets warm down by your feet. i have LTs too but it did that before them and it was like that i my v6 too.

    Only thing, On a GP... the knob isnt a knob.... its a button and I have to push it from 90* to 60*. Pretty damn annoying on that car.
