My mechanic hard wired my cooling fan because I run a mail route. But it has quit and been replaced 3 times in 6 months. He says it should last longer than that, but doesn't know why it won't. Is there another way to pull heat out of the engine compartment?

I have a good alternator and battery, but air bag light comes on when on a bumpy road, also speedometer stops and starts working for no apparent reason. Horn only works sometimes, so I had another one wired separately. The most recent problem was when the car quit altogether, and the voltmeter on the dash showed the battery was dead. But wiggled the alternator wire and battery cables and it fired right up. Can I change the alternator wire to stop all of this, or is it the whole wiring harness?

Heater only blows air out the ac vents, when I put lever in the defrost slot, I hear the ac pump kicking in. is there some kind of actuator switch not working?

I just bought this car, and I replaced both head gaskets and did a valve job as well, it ran before I did this but since it had a blown head gasket I did not let it warm up enough to know if the idle problem was there prior to tearing into it. when I first start the car, it runs as it should,(rpm's high until gets warmed some) then after it warms up some the idle returns to normal but it wants to die and sounds really rough.
Any help would be appreciated.
