will not heat up

Home  \  Domestic Cars  \  will not heat up

Hi all, I was hoping someone could help me with a problem I have with my 89 sunbird. I can't get it to warm up. The engine temp needle doesn't move off the cold line unless it is sitting at idle for a while and once I start moving it quickly returns to cold. It only gets a little warm inside the car, just enough to take the chill out of the air. I just replaced the thermostat today and that made next to no difference. The needle now just crawls off the cold line but not by much.

Thanks in advance

I wouldn't be suprised if you got the wrong temp thermostat...it happens. Did the moron, I mean punk kid, at the parts counter ask you what temperature or brand of thermostat you wanted? Also, check to make sure that your electric fan isn't running all the time.
