My 2003 VW GTI VR6 warms up fine and gives heat while driving, but at idle it immediately blows cold air. [more inside]
At what temperature do people set their thermostats if they live in Arctic climates, such as Barrow, Alaska? My mother wants to know. [more inside]
Can anyone recommend a sub $100 heater for a bathroom? [more inside]
The heater in my 95 G20 is suddenly working intermittently. For the last three days, I get cold air through the vents for the first 20 minutes of highway driving, followed by the heat suddenly kicking in. Then, when I corner around a sharp right hand turn, the air suddenly goes cold, and then heat resumes when I straighten up. Ideas before I head to the mechanic?
My landlord in NY claims that our heater must turn on when the temperature drops. If we wanted to prevent this, a technician would have to "turn the valves off" -- a cumbersome process that risks the valves later freezing and "popping" and steam destroying our apartment. True? Is this common? And if so, how can we deal with a too-hot room, other than by opening the window?
