I don,t know if your car has a monovalve, but that sounds like it may be the problem. Use the search function on this page to research it. Then check to see if your car has one. It is an easy fix for $30 and about 15 min. If that's not it, I'd check your heater core for flow problems. good luck.

Show a pic of your bypassed servo, maybe thats the problem.
