Well, I guess I'll answer my own question. After checking Chris Miller's web
site and perusing the Bentley, all indications point to temp regulating flap
and/or motor. Guess I'll have to check the water drain in there also. Today,
while cleaning the car, I found wet rear footwells. Strange thing is, the
front ones were dry. Is this A/C drain the culprit, or is there another

Don't think so. Coolant temp looks normal. Heat cycles happen all the time,
consistently. I'm thinking maybe some flap isn't flappin' correctly.
