Re: get more heat

Are you sure the heater valve is opening? You have several water cooled
VW's so you are probably already familiar with those plastic heater
valves. They can break in such a way that moving the arm does not move
the plastic part inside that is supposed to rotate. Usually they fail
open, but could fail closed I suppose. If you take the valve out you
should be able to look right through it when open.
