My car has 83000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi - your symptoms suggest the air blend doors in the heater air control box are not selecting the right proportion of heated air. This may possibly be aggravated by an engine that is not completely up to running temperature (left of center on the gauge). This could be caused by a thermostat which is not functioning properly. I recommend a heater inspection by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
