Default Heater only works half the time

It'* strange. It just works intermittently. An ideas?

Also, about 5 minutes ago I hit a pole parking because my dumbass neighbor parked halfway in my spot, and i wasn't watching close enough. The bumper looks ok, but i have a nasty crack in the left front corner panel. Are there any easy ways to fix this or am i gonna have to buy a new one? If so, what is a good price? I don't want to get ripped off.

When the car cools down, check the level of coolant in the radiator. Heater core is first to be starved when coolant is low.

Sorry 'bout the fender, man :(

It blows no heat half the time, or it doesn't blow half the time? Could be that your blower motor is going. They don't tend to last too entirely long.

As for the fender, some epoxy or super glue type stuff should work. After all, the fender is just plastic

Bill you are on it again....coolant level! If not coolant level check the heat core switch it accuates the coolant to heater core..they go bad as well.

Cant really call them fender benders anymore....

I really do not see why they felt it was better not to use steel fenders.....
