Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Outlander
I own a 2008 outlander. My problem is that when the vehicle is in Drive and is idling, the heat goes cold. Its like the air conditioner is on. The Dealership said it was the computer and it needed a upgrade... done and the problem is still there. The dealership said is was the thermostat and it needed changing... done and the problem is still there. Can anyone help me???
My wife has a 2007 Outlander, and we have had similar problems with the heating system. Whenever the temp. drops below 0, the same thing
,when the vehicle idles, cold air blows. The dealership is going to install the ECU used in the 2009 Outlander next week. Has anyone had this done, and did it work??

The reason you need a heater is probably you are in a cold region. snow is probably settling on the condensor, the same way the hot coolant would, if the radiator is leaking, and the person wants cold ac.

First, find another mechanic through a friend. You're getting taken by these guys. As for the heating problem, how does it act when you are actually driving? If it works fine, listen when you slow down for a noise like air escaping. If you hear it, you may have a vacuum leak that is causing the air dampers to close. It's a pretty cheap fix.
Check back before you spend more $$.
