SL320 Heating Problems

4771 Views 16 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  kiorash
Greetings Folks,

As the title suggests - My 1996 SL 320 is taking too long to kick in the heater from cold start. Sometimes up to 20 minutes. This was ok in the summer but come winter I will find this extremely painful.

Tried a search here and other forums but there is not much on heating issues. Any ideas or pointers will be appreciated. Hoping to get this sorted myself.

many thanks:surrender:

This slow heat problem is usually due to a premature opening thermostat. Check for correct thermostat operation and make sure all air is purged from cooling system.
