Default The engine temperature Issue.


I have 02 PT which is 110k on it. The heater do not blow the warm air to inside. When the car was stop, the warm wind comes out. However the car makes always cold air while the car was driving. Here is Michigan. The outside temp. is usually F20. The engine temp gauge stays cold position while the car is driving on the highway. It is horrible. Can't I drive in the winter season? What's wrong?

That sounds like the thermostat is stuck "open".
A PT with 110K on it needs some TLC - service! When was the coolant system flushed last?

Agree. Temp gauge should come up to 1/2 way - if it doesn't thermostat needs replacing.

agree with sooner and quick. if temp reads normal, either your heater core is clogged or airlocked, the flap door inside the heaterbox isnt working, or it could be as simple as the cabin air intake in the cowl is clogged with debris.
