I know with 80 degrees outside it is idiotic to ask about a heat problem. However, I think my repair job is better done now then when it is 35 outside. When it's cold outside I have some heat (never really hot) until I turn on the fan. The higher the fan speed the colder the heat ouput, so far as if I have the fan on high it's not even lukewarm. Off course now (80ish outside), the heat seems to be fine. I read somehwere on here to flush the heater core, but can't find the article. Any help wuld be greatly appreciated

Find two hoses that seem to plug into your firewall.
Pull them off and shove a garden hose in the there and flush it both directions.

after you flush it with a hose, do also the Clinton flush (run a search). Basically you put the hose in your mouth and blow real hard....do this until there is no crud coming out and the water is clear. Have fun....

Complete Clinton Flush--neighbor was nore than happy to blow the bull--realized our problen aka lack of heat was just LOW coolant--as in barely 2 quarts.

Never once overheated...OMG
