When it comes to winter, having heat in your car is essential. Have you ever had that experience where you go to use your heat and it doesn't quite feel that warm. All the sudden you're thinking, this is going to cost me a lot of money to get this fixed, and you're hoping you'll still have enough money leftover to pay rent or any other bills you may have due. Sometimes the cause of this problem is simply because your car does not have enough coolant in the system. Therefore hot antifreeze never gets to your heater core to creates the hot air for your fan to circulate to you. An easy way to see if this is your problem is to open both your radiator cap and coolant overflow container before you start your car to see if it has a sufficient amount of fluid. If it's low, simply top off the coolant in both areas and your problem may be solved. If this is happening, getting a professional opinion from your local mechanic can prevent this from happening in the future, which can save you time and $$.
