  4. My Toyota Celica 2004 vti had a heating problem - blowing cold air but no heating. the car was bought new, has been serviced and MOT certified at the same garage since 2004. My wife and I have seen no signs of a leak of any sort on or under the car, no white smoke emitted, and the engine showed no sign of overheating. everything seemed normal when the car was checked in for repairs- apart from the heater blowing cold air, but no heating. The weather since Chrismas 2020 was generally cold (frost at night and some days occasional snow). And as we were in the Covid - 19 lockdown si
