This is not for the Camaro, this is for my 1996 Ford Taurus. The heat comes on, but seems to be very weak for some reason. With most other cars this was usually a sign that the radiator needed water. once filled the heat worked fine. I've checked the water level in the Taurus and it's completely full. This is an area that I have very little experience in. What else can I look at to solve this problem?

Clogged heater core.
Non-fuctioning duct system.
If equiped, a broken heater hose shut off valve.
Twice in my wife's Grand Prix the heater/AC malfunctioned due to a vacuum line that disconnected under the hood.

I worked on a customers 94 Ford truck awhile back with the same problem. I found a pencil had fallen down the defrost duct and was in the path of the fresh air door not allowing it to close completely. This was enough to keep from getting heat into the cab of the truck and had the simptoms of a plugged heater core. Hope this helps graemlins/beers.gif

Does this car have a temperature gauge? If not, or if it does and it is running cooler than normal, it may be that your thermostat is stuck in the open position. In colder weather the engine will never reach a temperature sufficient for the heater to perform well.
