as far as mileage... have you checked your fuel filter, air filter, plugs, wires, etc.? I would check the fuel filter especially. I know nothing about heating though.

it sounds like a potential symptom of Head gasket failure. I know the early dohc 2.5's were _very_ prone to this failure.

ull probably have to rig up a switch for that which i heard is illegal and my friend did it and forgot he left his car in gear smashed his car into his barn, bet he wont do that again


also, check to see if theres air in ur heater core , put ur car on a steep hill <front aimed up> open the radiator w/ it running and turn on the heater and put in fluid till its full if it isnt
