Car repair: Fixed the heater on a S80


welcome back guys today we’re gonna tackle this car as you can see on a windshield on this car it’s very very cold outside now we had like minus 17 today the problem is that this car does not get warm you don’t get any heat inside a car and the most common issue when it comes to this is actually the thermostat in the car itself if we take a closer look at the engine here you have radiator in the front here you have any in here the thing is that the engine gets cold by moving water or some kind of fluid from them engine to a cooler itself but when this cold outside you don’t want to move all the water around and cool it down because you actually want some heat in the engine and you want some heat in their car so the most common issue is actually that inside here you have a valve that regulates the temperature of the engine this one here is you can take a closer look this is actually common on most car and it looks almost the same and kind of the same position the top of the engine it differs a little bit of course in this engine here is very simple because it actually is on the top and it’s easy to be removed and fixed here we have the package with a new part let’s open it up it contains the valve itself and it contains two o-rings they will be there to actually make sure that this one is solid and not leaking this one goes around here and this one goes on top what the valve does is that when it gets hot enough it opens the valve and push it is pushes it open and a water will flow to the radiator itself the ones in the car is most likely broken in some way and opens directly or or open all the time I don’t know as you can see here I am lift this cover off now on a little bit of kuphulu it will leak out so you need to be aware of that see here is the valve see if we can lift it up that’s how it looks like and for those that are observing if you will see that it’s not even closed it’s totally open so that what happen it’s actually jammed I’m not sure if we can I wonder what happened here as you can see you can see through the right one meanwhile the left one is actually closed so what you do is you can see inside this ring here it’s open you can see there you need to fit all this on this edge all the way around it’s not complicated it just takes some time like that into the car make sure you don’t have any dirt there and you just sit back you take this cover put it back in place and the knot the last thing you need to make sure is that you have enough coolant in the core now because it did empty some lot of the pool that should be either thing didn’t leak that much so guys that’s it for today simple short video on how do you fix the car when it’s cold inside remove and fix them valve that is controlling it please subscribe let me know what you think thank you all and see you next time bye you
