"The heater of my 1993 Honda Accord does not work when on the highway. Could it be the thermostat?" is the correct Engligh grammar format for the question you ask about. May I ask what do you know about thermostats in automobiles? The primary function of the thermostat is to allow the engine to warm up quickly by controlling coolant flow to the radiator. When you start your engine the controlled explosion known as internal combustion begins. As heat builds inside the cylinders, the coolant in the passages around them begin to absorb that heat. The thermostat opens to allow coolant flow only after the engine reaches proper operating temperature. Hot coolant flows away from the engine and into the radiator to cool off. Seconds later it returns to the engine to absorb more heat. So goes the operation of your vehicle cooling system. How is that related to what happens inside the vehicle for temperature control? It provides the heat via valves. But there is a lot more to providing regulated temperature into the passenger compartment. The process and the equipment and the controls are the realm of technicians that go to school, read, study, get tested, practice, make repairs and learn by doing BEFORE they get licensed to work on cars. This car is now 20 years old and has probably 250,000 miles on the odometer. That is a lot of miles and use on a car. OK? No guessing has ever repaired a car. Ever. Your only move is to take the car to an auto repair shop and allow a technician to make tests, work the equipment, detect what is possibly wrong and then he, or she, can make the required repairs. OK? Next time a friend suggests that something could be the problem, I shall give you this advise, smile, say thank you and head for the auto repair shop of your choice. OK? Cars are incredibly complex machines that do so many things so well we tend to forget they need repairs, service and maintenance. Good luck with the repairs.
