2000 gmc safari warm up questions

Hello and I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. My 2000 GMC Safari has a couple of issues but the one that worries me is that when i cold start the vehicle the temperature gauge takes longer than usual to get to normal heat temperature, what can i do to improve warm up on my family mobile?

Your thermostat may be stuck in the open position. The original thermostat is a 195 degree. Your engine should be warm enough to blow heat in 5 minutes of idling or driving.

There was actually a recall for this. Go to your local GMdealer and have them check your VIN for a recall. If not under recall get out of there its easy to repair yourself don't let'em fool you.Remove the front pads caliper and rotors. Locate the abs sensor mounted to the wheelbearing assembly by a small socket head cap screw (Allen wrench). Removethe bolt and softly gently/wiggle the abs sensor around until it pops upout of the hole. some will break, which is why it wouldbe nice if the recall applies to your vehicle that way if they break gm replaces. Once you get both sides removed, clean themounting surface of all rust or build up with w-d 40 and small steel toothbrush then wipe off excess with clean rag and mild soap and warm water, dry completely make sure no spray residue exist on parts, Next apply a thin layer of lubricant grease to preventfuture rusting and reassemble.The rust build up under the sensor is causing the angle to change resultingin inaccurate wheel speed readings in the abs module your abs module will interprets this asa wheel is either slipping or skidding and applies your abs. This should make you happy with no more irritations. Please rate me. If you need further assistance you can always ask me. Good luck with this.

Check for a bad temperature sensor. To check it, remove it first. Using an ohmmeter measure its resistance, which should decrease when dipped in hot water. If the the resistance remain high and doesnt change then you know it is bad, and you don't end up wasting money on buying one when it is still good.
