Winter heat

Asked by Mar 09, 2013 at 02:59 PM about the 1990 Volkswagen Vanagon GL Passenger Van

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1990 Vanagon, 200k miles, runs great. Always had poor winter heat from front and rear heaters. Heat gauge pointer moves around but does not come off bottom mark. Thermostat changed twice in 15 years, never did correct problem. Summer heat normal, 1/3 to 1/2 of heat gauge.  Anyone with any ideas??  Tnx.   Tony

good service, dont you think it deserves another stat. for now?,im talking a good one now mr tony


Do you think insulating the heater hoses would increase the heater core temperature? Do the hoses run inside or outside the cabin.?
