I'm not really complaining at all about my heater, but I was wondering if anyone can suggest ways to get the heater to work faster. It usually takes half my 9 mile drive to get good heat out of it with a 5 minute warmup. Eventually the climate control will catch up, it just takes longer than my drive.

I'm more curious if there are parts or pieces that may need attention. I bought the car 2 years ago and these have been the first 2 winters it's ever seen, so I might make a guess that it's not used to having to make heat.

Of course let me preface this with the fact, here in Minnesota it's been Damn cold the past few weeks.
Facts: '82 300D Turbo, 150k, original everything except wheels and tires, all switches, gauges, buttons, ... work, all maintenence performed by the book.

Thanks!!

I'll implement these suggestions this weekend.

Long as I have your attention...

Do people tend to do their own maintenence on their cars or do you have a competent mechanic do it? Also what service manuals do you suggest? I've seen one on CD that looks nice, but expensive.

Thanks,
