You have a heater coil that is not functioning properly. I think on your model it is located under the hood next to the firewall or under and near the glove compartment. This allows the water from the radiator to run through this coil which when the fan circulates the air, it passes over the coil and is heated.

My reverse lights are not working in my 97 vr4 galant

Hi there, I am not a mechanic, but there should be a switch by your gearbox close to where you put it in reverse that closes the circuit for the lights to burn when you put it in reverse. Hope it helps.

My heat will works sometimes; sometimes it will not. Is it the thermostate not opening? I just spent $2300 getting in serviced with timing belt, etc in July ... I should have mentioned the heat problem but...

The heater should work even when the thermostat is closed. You cannot hear the thermostat. It opens very slowly. If you hear bubbling noises, you probably have air in the system that needs to be bled out. You may also have a leak. Something you can try is to get some coolant, park on a hill, let the engine cool. Do not remove the radiator cap while the engine is hot. When it cools, add coolant with the engine running. This will help burp air out of the engine.

ok make sure your radiator fan sucks the air and pull the engine this is very important. If the fan is electric checks goes to work automatically and if not activated thermal switch may have a problem. Thanks

Has it overheated lately?
My wife overheated our Galant and it just stopped working, it cranks but that's it.
I pulled the sparkplugs and found them wrapped in a gewey jelly like substance. Like an oil/antifreeze combo.
I am going to replace the entire motor for $1000 as taking it to the mechanics to theorize and practice may cost more.
