Have your heater core checked out. If it is blocked with all kinds of junk it fails, and the car over heats. Also when you were warming up your car did you have the heater on? If you did and it smelled like burnt maple syrup there ya go. They don't always have to leak to fail, and cause coolant supply cut off to the engine block. But be informed if it is it will be a pain to remove and repair.

Sounds like you may have a thermostat that is failing or your engine may have had a temporary vapor lock. First of all check your coolant level if that seems fine replace your thermostat. As far as being on high until you shut your heater off is probably just coincidence because when your heater is on it is helping to dissipate the heat from your coolant system.

The thermostat is located at the upper radiator hose end of the engine. The hose will connect to a housing that will have to be removed in order to change the thermostat.
While you have the thermostat housing removed, make sure you flush the old coolant out and replace with new.
Good luck.

Heater not blowing hot but engine not overheating


The coolant thermostat needs replaced or you need a coolant flush. Heater cores (in the dashboard) often clog and stop warm coolant from circulating into the heater. A coolant flush would cure this. Flushes usually run from 70 to 90 dollars to have done at a service shop.
