My G car was like this - no air con, and was a luke warm dribble. I think it was an air bubble I think. After draining a couple of times it became (and still is) hot.

Hi Kirk

 

I don't have air con on my car, I ran with a luke warm dribble for a year after recommissioning the car in 2012, and it was one of the things that was fixed on the first years service.

 

I didn't drain it myself, but this description came from GST in Newmarket.

The heater was fixed last year, the water leak is for this week :)

 

Gerald picked up the car today. Hope to get a good photo of it with Barrie's black one.

Kirk,

 

Did you get the owner's manual with the car?

The dash level vents only blow "cold" air.  If you have the knob turned to interior then only these vents blow, and they won't blow hot air.

 

If you have the heat on, and the knob is to defrost, then the defrost vents at the windshield are where the heat comes out.   If you have heat selected and the knob about half way between defrost and interior, then some heat will come out on your feet as well...

 

That's just how the system works.
