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.
i was thinking the exact same thing as well, but didn't bother post regarding that. since his question is no heat in the morning, and he doesn't mention whether or not if it's a cold start. he also mentions it's fine once driven as he goes. to me sounds like his car is perfectly fine, but he's gotta be a bit more specific...
