The heater turns on for about and shuts off.
JA: Have you checked the coolant level? Has there been any leaking from the hoses?
Customer: The coolant light keeps coming on and off
JA: What is the model/year of your GM?
Customer: 2000 Oldsmobile intrigue
JA: Are you fixing your Intrigue yourself? What have you tried so far?

Does it have auto temp controls or manual?

Is it the blower that stops after a certain amount of time?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Auto temp. It's blowing hot air when it came on. I have to go. What do I need to do?
Expert:  Jerry replied 10 months ago.

I see, thanks. You would have to test the blower motor and resistor to see where the power loss is from.
