Question about 1997 GMC Safari
Humm I make the assumption that you don't have overheating problems. Yes, sounds like a thermostat is stuck open. If you have a gage on the dash you may also notice that the engine temp takes a long time also. Sometimes when you sit a light for a while the temp edges up and starts to get warm....then when moving down the road a higher speeds the temp cools off again. this does this because the thermostat may be stuck open and it cools the heated water in the engine when moving. Also, check the coolant level in the radiator. (only do this when cold!!!!!!!!) ok????? NOT HOT! low coolant can affect how the heater performs. (low volume)
Hope this helped. :)
