Lol who knows, will find out on the weekend. I hope so otherwise it may be covering other hidden problems. Thermo housing looks like its never been touched.

I reckon it'll be the thermostat. Heater wasn't that hot, ran at 65 deg. Only got to 'o' in 'NORMAL' on a 43 deg day (EB dash).

Thats what im hoping for, nice easy fix. my temp gauge never even makes it to the writing "normal". always sits smack bang on the line under it. will go well into normal if doing skids etc.

Same with my car it always sits under normal . I did a climate control conversion in my xr6 and the heater doesn't warm up. But it never warmed up before the conversion. I'm also having blend door issues . I'm missing a vac line that goes into the engine bay . On closer inspection I can see the vac line it's tangled up around the grommet at the fire wall. So the dash is coming out this w/e . Hopefully I can fix it. I need it for this weather lol

Yeah i just swapped thermostat, old one looked ok, it was closed when cold so that eliminates the stuck open theory, but who knows it might of not been opening far enough, cant be bothered boiling the jug to find out lol. going for a drive soonish so will find out if success. and f**k i hope i dont have to pull dash out lol. i also need heater in this weather, it was 1 degree here last night lol and winters not even fully here

if it wasn't opening far enough it would have been running hot not cold. it should have a temperature stamped into it

Just been for a drive (thrash) around the streets. and had cabin temp up to 28degrees. feels alot warmer now. had to get the mrs in there to double check for me as shes the soft one lol she said its changed heaps. so final outcome, yeah it worked lol. temp gauge sits on about the a in normal now. bit higher, but heater works so allgood lol, the real test will be early tommorrow morning when i use it. cold mornings leather seats and no heater not good. hopefully itll be a warmer ride in the morning.
