Some may find this hard to believe BUT some cars do not have "auto" temperature.

Until the coolant warms up, not fully but say when the temp gauge starts to move, blowing cold outside air through the heater core will just make you colder as the air is moving. Once your temp gauge moves off the lower stop, there will be some heat available. I wouldn't turn the blower up much till the temp gauge is out of the "cold" region.


Not sure why this is a question. You can't get heat from cold coolant.
That is my opinion.
