    My sister has an extra car, 92 prizm :hsugh:, and I'm gonna drive it until I get another car as my car was totalled

    the thing is the heater doesn't work well, what could be the problem? Will it cost more to fix than the car is worth? Lol

    im betting the thermostat went bad, or the coolant is low

    when my cars thermo went bad it would take 30min of driving to get a bit of heat out, and would barely get passed 140F

    basically the same when the coolant was low
