No Heater, except when driving fast!

Asked by Jan 06, 2010 at 09:58 AM about the 2002 Nissan Altima 2.5

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Car only produces heat when traveling at a constant speed (highway travel).  As soon as the car slow or stops heat changes to blowing cold air.

1 Answer

My car also did this. Check the coolant levels in your radiator and the reservoir. My levels were low and once I filled them back up, the heater worked just fine.
