Re: Heater Problem!

Thermostat, sticking open possibly, it probably closes again when the engine cools right down.

Re: Heater Problem!

Have you checked the coolant level? It may be too low.

Re: Heater Problem!

What does the temperature gauge say? it could be air in the system.

Re: Heater Problem!

The temp gauge seems to be acting normally it usually sits at about half, did go up much higher yesterday but fan did come on. I noticed when i drove a long distance at weekend that the heater did go warm again now and then in the journey
