Why Isn't My Heater Working?
Your radiator is the key component in your engine's cooling system. It regulates the temperature of your engine and keeps the car from overheating on simple drives and from failing to run in cold weather. But, if your car heater isn't warming up properly, it may be more than just a radiator problem.
Car repairs such as replacing a bad thermostat that isn't allowing the engine to properly warm-up, opening a blocked heating core or fixing a broken blower fan can resolve common problems that cause your car's heater to fail. But don't worry, often radiator and car heater repairs are simple to diagnose and can be done using a straightforward process.
