The car ran good yesterday but went to start it this morning and the temp was high. The fan came on , the belts looked good and coolant level was good. I was thinking it could be the thermostat.

I was told the computer in my outlander needed replaced because the wipers and the cigarette lighter both quit working.

Whenever the heater is on and I make a hard right turn, the blower starts making a LOT of noise. I have to turn it off and usually leave it off for a bit and or make a hard left to get it to stop making the noise.
