We have also had problems with heat not working in the winter. (We live in upsatate NY, so we need heat!) The system will blow cold air, and occasionally it will heat, but only after we have driven the car for about 10 minutes. It will not heat up if we just let the car idle, only if we are actually driving. Our mechanic (not the same person as the repair garage that has worked on the AC), has looked at it, but cannot find any serious problems and it seems to go back to working just fine.
Also this past spring, we had a problem suddenly with car overheating and low coolant levels. Again, our mechanic looked things over but could only find a few small leaks, so he put some stop leak in and the vehicle is fine. Are these problems related or just a coincidence? We have had a good relationship with our repair garage here in town, but I think they are getting a bit frustrated. Any help you could provide would be very much appreciated - especially since we are due to leave on our family vacation in 3 more days! Thank you.
have the same problem?
