Question Heater - no heat

Hi, my friend's '91 Legacy's heater works (the fan blows air) but he's not getting any hot air? Any ideas. Thanks in advance.

If the mode switch in the HVAC unit is working properly and the air is coming out of the heater vents like it's supposed to but just isn't hot, it's possible the heater core is clogged or the thermostat isn't working properly. Does the temp gauge read normal, or lower than normal?

The temp gauge is lower than normal, actually doesn't climb much at all.

Then it sounds like a classic case of a thermostat that is stuck open. Replace the thermostat and both problems should be solved.

definitely needs a thermostat, they are built to stick open, not closed. most people don't even notice till the winter when it's time for the heat to come back on.
