I know turning the heaters on on an overheating car helps cool it down, but does having them on all the time prevent it from warming up? The last few months my heater has stayed in the hot setting with it being freezing, and i just turned them on or off, and my temp guage has never strayed out of the blue. I thought that was just the stat playing up but today was quite warm so i turned it to cold, and within minutes the temp climbed up to about 90-95 degrees, dropped to thefirst marker whilst moving. It runs fine and is very economical so it must be getting warm enough to run well, but surely it should get warm then supply warm air? or at least get warmer than the blue area anyway? I did change the rad, flush it and put 50/50 mix of antifreeze/water in about October time, so is it just doing what it should?
