I have a 2007 mitsubishi eclipse I just bought. This is going to be my first winter and it isnt even that cold out yet. 1st question is.. Was the car suppost to come with a front grill. My front end is all open and you can see the Radiator. I see some cars have them. 2nd question is it takes like 15 miles or 10 minutes for it to even start getting warm. Then it isnt even that warm. My chevy s10 is hot in like 5 minutes. just wondering if this is normal?. it runs cold and doesnt warm up well.. Thank you

Hi goldenbronzer,

If others have it, then you should too. Someone took the grille off and did not put it back.

Check the thermostat. It could be missing or stuck in open position causing delay in warming up. Gauge should be indicating after 5 mins of running.
