Hello and welcome to Just, Super mechanic here. About your vehicle.



  1. Select the maximum heater temperature and blower motor speed settings. Position the control to discharge air at A/C vents in instrument panel.
  2. Start the engine and allow to idle. While engine is idling, feel for hot air at A/C vents.








  • Start engine and allow to idle until normal operating temperature is reached. Hot air should discharge from A/C vents. The engine coolant temperature gauge should maintain a stabilized reading in the middle of the NORMAL range and the upper radiator hose should feel hot to the touch. CAUTION : If air discharge remains cool and engine coolant temperature gauge does not move, engine coolant level is low in engine and must be filled. Stop engine, allow to cool and fill cooling system.
  • Shut the engine off and allow to cool.
  • Check the engine for coolant leaks.
  • Check the engine coolant level in degas bottle and fill as necessary.
