Get The Cabin Heater Repair Your Car Needs At The Byers Airport Subaru Service Center
To stay comfortable on chilly days, you need a cabin heater that works well in your car. But did you know that the heater is directly related to the engine’s cooling system? That means if the heater isn’t working properly, there could be even deeper problems developing under the hood. We’ll tell you a bit about how your heater works, the symptoms of a bad heater and what regular maintenance your car needs to keep the heater running its best.
Why Isn’t My Heater Working?
Some reasons why the heater stops working aren’t related to the engine. For example, the engine might be making plenty of heat, but it’s not coming through the vents due to a failed blower fan. The fan pushes hot air from the heater and cool air from the A/C system into the cabin through the vents. It can stop working due to a blown fuse or a bad relay, or it can simply wear out over time.
But to heat the cabin, the heater uses coolant flowing through the engine. The cooling system draws heat out of the engine. When you turn the heater on, some of that hot coolant is diverted to the heater core, which heats the air before it is sent to the cabin. That means, if the cooling system has a leak and there’s not enough coolant in the system, the heater won’t work either. And if the cooling system isn’t working properly, that can quickly allow the engine to overheat and suffer major damage!
What Regular Maintenance Does My Engine’s Cooling System Need?
Modern Subaru Super Coolant, which comes in modern Subaru engines from the factory, is designed to last for a really long time. In fact, the recommended interval for replacement is a whopping 11 years or 137,500 miles! However, Subaru also recommends having the cooling system, the radiator, the hoses and other components regularly inspected by a technician in case any problems have cropped up. Every 30,000 miles, a technician should take a close look at the system to spot developing problems.
