Heater

Starting to cool down with Fall around the corner and used the heater for the first time last night without much success. Anyone have an idea of how to get more air volume past the heater coil to produce more warm air? I had heard of modifing the heater flap at the vent, not sure if this will work? Any suggestions would be great.

Will try the sweater first...funny... or putting the windows back on.

Thanks will try pushing the flap out of the way to increase air flow. The heater fan is pretty weak, maybe a replacement in order.

Replacing it, might not help, they aren't that strong of a blower to begin with.

By the way, what year, color and type is your truck?

also make sure you go to the engine compartment and push on the lever coming out of the heater box, my cable is old and very hard to move, the lever doesn't fully get to hot position unless I push it there by hand. Only a little difference in position makes it either hot air or cold air..

I have the same issue as Steve. I adjust the heater lever in the engine compartmeing. It makes a big difference for me.

my cables are broke, i zip tie the levers off in the summer and on in the winter and as Steve says it make a hell of a difference, exspesially with the lower lever which opens the flap fully on the bulkhead
