88 Turbo Coupe Heat Issues

I have auto climate control in my TC. During normal driving, the heat works fine. Stopped at a light, within 30 seconds, the car starts blowing cold air into the car. I've replaced the heater core and heater control valve, along with the climate control head unit. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

Well try this , watch the temp. gage as you drive and then as you stop , does it drop in temp. or is it the same , that will let you know if its in the rad. or not . Is your cooling fan on the rad. running all the time . DW

you might want to check the thermostat out or another question is whats your coolant look like, maybe it could stand changed. But if thats good i agree with the above post of the fan might not be coming on all the time. Hope these ideas help you out and good luck finding the problem.

Classic symptom of low coolent. Did you "Burp" the system after you changed all you did?
