Question about 2000 Nissan Altima

A heating problem on a 2000 nissan altima

I have a 2000 nissan altima and the services engiene soon light has recently stayed on. I got it checked and they said that the heater thermostat may be broke because my heat doesn't blow out like it should. Is this a matter that needs to be taken care of ASAP or can I wait a month or so to do it without causing more damage to the vehicle? And is it that expensive to do.

You can take a little time but you should definitely replace it soon if you have cold weather where you live.

Engines need to be warmed up by the coolant in the winter time.

1998 nissan altima dashboard display engine service soon

Hello and thank you for using FixYa!

The service engine soon light comes on when a fault is detected in the emission system. The service engine soon light is the same thing as a check engine light. A scan tool will be needed to get the code for the failure, so the proper repairs can be made.

Thanks Jay!
