There is nothing more frustrating than when you get in your car on a cold day and the heater is not working. You are cold, the kiddos are cold, and no one is happy. The same thing rings true if it’s blistering hot and the air conditioner in your car is blowing hot.

The heater system, for the most part, works off of the cooling system in the vehicle. The cooling system is a very important part of keeping the engine cool. As that system operates properly, so should the heating system inside the car.

The A/C is a separate system altogether and has its own components. Some of these components will stay operational and oiled during the cold months when you are not using it. This happens when you turn your defroster on in the car. There are hoses and O rings, filter, and a compressor that is utilized for the operation of the A/C system.
