You can check to make sure the radiator fluid is up to the correct fill level. Also be sure that the coolant/water mix is within the suitable ratio parameters. There is an inexpensive tester at all reputable autopart stores for that. You can also check to see if your thermostat is functioning properly. If it is not then your heat may only get slightly warm and may not heat up at all. Sounds like a thermostat.

The proper and safe way to defrost fish is to defrost it in the fridge. to defrost. Depending upon what fish you are using, you might be able to skip defrosting it and cook it from frozen.

You need to start out by checking the a/c-heater controller and the a/c-heater doors behind the dash for proper operation..............

Replace the heater core under the dash board. Fairly easy job if no A/C. But first before you start this, see if is there a coolant leak inside the cab? Usually onto the floor mat and/or what appears to be vapor exiting defrost windshield vent (leaves greasy like film on glass. If above is not happening then check thermostat for proper operation and heater hose connections for leaks. Heater cores are usually no more than $40-50. You should be able to buy at after market auto supply store.

the flap on the vent and defroster is stuck somewhere in between so it is not letting proper airflow to where you designate it possibly something sticky has fell down through the defrost vent and is constricting max. airflow

It depends on the type of operation. Your physician is the proper person so answer that queston.

I see a multiplication operation with a proper conversion factor

If it has the vacumm operated climate control check for a vacumm leak under the dash. Also check for proper operation of the vacumm valves operating the doors. Usually if the system breaks the control will default to the defrost position and vacumm leaks are a common cause.

Not very long. It requires a functioning lift pump for proper operation.Not very long. It requires a functioning lift pump for proper operation.

If the thermostat is stuck wide open (and thus needing replacement) the engine will never achieve proper operating temperature and thus will not heat the interior of the car much.

lack of proper care. lack of proper (distilled) water in the radiator.

User Avatar

Yes, that is a perfectly valid mathematical operation.

as safe as the design of the heater, and the care of the operator. poor contruction is unsafe; good construction is safe. Proper maintenance is essential, as well as proper storage of fuel and keeping flammable items away from the heater.

Unfortunately, the easiest way to change the hose (firewall connections) is from under the car. If your Achieva has the dual hose with the black valve across both lines, make sure you go to the dealer for the replacement. It's important for proper operation. Replacing with regular heater hose will cause problems down the road.

The water heater will work if it will fit dimensionally. The proper electrical voltage and amperage are necessary if it is electric . Propane or natural gas will also work with the proper supply lines .

low coolant? Bad thermostat? Climate control not sensing proper temperature? Heater core plugged or restricted? Heater core airbound?

User Avatar

There is a vacuum switch that controls an air gate that diverts the air flow to the proper outlet. Blowing air out the defroster is the default setting of the switch. Most common causes of this problem are vacuum leaks. Check the vacuum hose on the passenger side engine compartment first. It ususally leaks going through the fire wall. Regardless this problem is most often always the result of a leak somewhere in the vacuum system not the failure of the switch itself. If it is a diesel check for proper operation of the vacuum pump

Yes, the thermostat needs to be installed for proper engine operation.

User Avatar

If the engine is at the proper temperature and the coolant is full, you have a restricted heater core.

User Avatar

there a switch on your heater control panel.be more specific to get a proper answer

User Avatar

yes, although it sounds slightly stilted.

User Avatar

Bolt the heater core into its proper position. There are four retaining bolts. Connect the water lines to the heater core. Fill the cooling system with coolant.

Check coolant level, repair any leaks. Check engine operating temp, replace thermostat if below 190 deg F. Check for proper operation of heater controls and repair as necessary.
