My 86 will melt your feet off and I currently have a stuck open thermostat so it never really warms up. The 85 I had in 1985 was the same way.the only reason I can think that it would not be hot is that the heater core or lines are clogged.GreeBo said:I've got the same problem after flushing my system twice. Maybe its just never that warm.. I can't remember. Does anyone have a mk1 that DOES blow nice and hot?
I thought 87+ were servo motor controlled? There were no vacuum actuators on the ductwork that I pulled out of my 88SC.ITA-MR2 said:My '88 S/C will run you out of the car. If your coolant temps are normal and the heater's not, you have a problem. The easiest thing to check is the heater control valve. If it's opening all the way, then you get into all the dampers and diverters in the duct work. That's a PITA. The '87 and later had vacuum motors on everything, so a vacuum problem could cause things not to work properly. The '85-'86 cars had more archaic, but more reliable, cable linkages.
