  1. Hey guys, have a problem, i bought a 2005 mustang v6 back when it was warm. since it has got cold i have desperately needed heat! heres the problem. Temp gauge goes up right to the middle within 5 minutes, but the heat hardly ever gets warm, after about 30 minutes the heat is warm enough to stand it but barely warm enough to keep the fog off the window! my thoughts is the blend vent actuator? any ideas?! i would greatly appreciate it!

  3. Take the easy route first and make sure there is no air trapped in the system restricting coolant flow thru the heater core. I have had this happen before.
  4. How would you get trapped air out? just open the coolant cap?
  5. What, you didnt change out your summer coolant air yet? :nono:
  6. I really don't know what your talking about madspeed?
  7. Casey, Yes just take of the coolant cap, let the car warm up and you will hear the thermostat open and the coolant start to circulate turn the heater on high and just let it circulate for 5 or 10 min. Turn it off, top off the coolant if it needs it, put the cap back on and hope this solves your problem. Enjoy your Mustang they are a lot of fun.
  8. Thanks Richg, actually forgot to post that I just installed a new radiator ha, i bought it wrecked. could have air in the system. thanks again
