Default Does Baja have a HVAC heater or use passive heat?

When I turn the heat on in the Baja is it just sending me reused engine heat or is there a heating element that heats up?

I'm wondering because when I see my oil temps rising I'll turn the heater on full blast thinking I'm drawing heat from the engine compartment to cool it off some. But if it's just turning on a heating element, I wouldn't do this.

It uses engine coolant in a dedicated loop. Coolant is always thing through it. If the mixer flap fails it won't allow the heated air to escape the chamber.

The heater works great. I guess I'm trying to find out if using the HVAC hot air will help passively cool the engine some to prevent engine over heating.

It does. I have done it myself when I forgot to hookup the fans after an engine install. Gave me enough time to get off the road.
