Sounds like a thermostat without a doubt, get yourself a new one, make sure you get the gasket/seal a thermostat with an operating temp of 86 degrees should be fine, make sure you remove the top and bottom radiator hoses and flush the system and fill with a quality antifreeze, a good idea is to let the engine get to an operating temp (ie engine fan comes on) before you refit the radiator/header tank cap this will allievate any chance of an airlock hope this helps Thomas On Tue, 27 Nov 2001 10:50:58 -0800, Dennis Cathey <> wrote: >Ladies & gents, >My '92 900S hatchback has 101K miles, and my heater seems to take about >20 - 30 minutes to start blowing hot air.
