First do not work on a hot car. Let your car be cold before attempting to remove the radiator cap.
Check your antifreeze level. If it is not up to the top of the radiator and in the plastic reservoir, add antifreeze. If it is OK, then it is probably your thermostat. Before you do any of this you will have to buy a thermostat for your particular car. The parts guy should get you the correct one.You will have to do a little mechanic work to replace it. You follow the hose at the top of your radiator and remove the clamps that holds the hose to the thermostat housing.you have to pull off the hose and remove the bolts that holds the housing. Underneath is the thermostat. Note how it is positioned inside the housing.Take off the gasket and remove any debris that might be left. Get a little grease or even petroleum jelly to hold the gasket in place and install the new thermostat in the same way you took out the old one. replace the housing being careful not to overtighten the bolts. (you can break the housing) attach the hose and clamps and you are ready to go.Allow the car to warm up and try the heater.
