heater ??

Not sure if I put this in the right place. When I turn on the heat it blows air but does not heat up like it did last winter. Last winter it got toasty when I had the heat on. Now it just blows ambiant temp. The ac still blows nice and cold. Any ideas?

Not trying to be weird... You live in Virginia and its cold enought to use your heat?

Anyways Id think about replacing your coolant and clean out the heater core.

A couple mornings last week it was in the 60s and needed to use the defrost to clear the wind sheild that and with the misses being 6 months pregnant has been getting hot/cold flashs. How do you clean out the heater core? Also to change out my coolant i just need to drain and refill?

After you refill they system, be sure to bleed the air out. The bleeder screw is at the front of the thermostat housing.
