Heat blows cold air. Used to make a clicking noise whenever I switched it from cold to hot. Now no clicking and no heat.
There was no heat in the car. Sometimes the heater motor would work but it eventually stopped. The local mechanic contacted the Mitsubishi dealer and replaced the motor which restored the liquid flow. This was done on 11/2/2011.
