Re: heater problems. (DuBLiFeh2o)

The coolant isn't flowing fast enough the the matrix, could be low on coolant, blocked, the pipe has colapsed or the valve (recall) is faulty. Something like that.

Take a look at you thermostat. If your thermostat is not fully open, the coolant will not circulate adequately. That can explain that your engine is running hot on the highway and why the heater is not working properly (not enough coolant passing in the heater core)
