The HVAC system has a main blend door that controls temp by diverting air
over the heater core/AC evaporator or both for mixed temp settings. This
blend door is actuated by vacuum. There are many vacuium hoses and pots
involved with the system.
So, it sounds like the vacuum source is marginal (maybe a damaged line) or
you have a leaky vacuum pot that isn't holding the vacuum to keep the door
