too cool temps in the winter

Far be it from me to suggest NASCAR as the answer to your cool temp 
problem.  ;-)

My car has never shown much on the temp gauge during the winter unless 
I'm being held up by them city-slicker tourists. And I believe there 
have been those who have argued that as long as the oil temp is OK, the 
coolant gauge isn't too important. I don't pretend to know.
But the fact that you have a heat problem indicates that all is not 
well, as I've never had a heat problem other than the lovely recirc 

  I'm sorry to be unable to offer much more than a confirmation of the 
problem, other than to tell you that my car has been well-maintained 
(read: more $ thrown at the thing than at Iraq. I'm currently working 
up the financial courage to have the dealer track down my loss of 
boost. It'd down to 1.5-1.6 indicated from the 1.8 we know and love 
with the uncorrected readout from the chip and em. And an exhaust 
hanger. And . . .)

Hope the other listers who actually know how to fix these things give 
you the info.

Best Regards,
