Oops, just looked in the Bentley and there is a vacuum valve in the s-cars
although not readily visible as it is on the left side of the heater box
under the plastic plenum (what the hell is a plenum?) tray. I bet this is
Still curious though about the temperature thing.
Just looked under hood of my S and could not locate the heater control valve
as exists in my 5KCSTQ. I thought this might be the culprit but... Does
this type of vacuum operated valve exist in the s-cars? Perhaps your heat
problems are as simple as low coolant level? Just a stab in the dark but...
On a related but different subject, I get nice warm air until the preset
temp is reached then the temperature cools down significantly. On the
5KCSTQ the temp remains constant but the fan slows down. I much prefer this
approach to climate control. Is it because I always control the temp/fan
speed manually? Meaning I never hit the Auto button. Or is this a
"feature" of the S-cars?

On my 86 400Q, the valve went bad inside, couldn't see it but the flap
(?) inside the valve was broken off. I bypassed teh valve for heat
until I could get a new valve (got lots of heat then...and I mean LOTS)
