Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to help get your problem solved.

This most likely means the thermostat is sticking open which isn't allowing engine to warm up. If you have poor heat this will also confirm it as likely cause. This is around a $450 job to have replaced at a shop depending on where you go. You will be fine to make***** just make sure coolant is full. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.
