How can you say that? If the thermostat is stuck open (coolant constantly flowing through the rad), then the car takes a lot longer to warm up, and possibly not warm up to where it's supposed to at all. I had that happen on my benz.

I thought this thread was a joke. No heat in the mornings aka when he first starts the car, and at idle. Well duh you have to drive the car for 10-15 minutes before you get heat.
