Put the top up

Seriously, though...coolant level, air in the system, heater core...
I'm assuming that the blower works? Where is the engine temperature during normal driving?

From the Bentley repair manual.

Thermostat can also be an issue… What does your temperature gauge display? Does your motor warm-up to 180 (160 for low temp thermostat)?
