You might have a weak fan you should try getting a new one and poping it in. Same thing happend to my Brothers SSE. He had me replace it and it blew harder then mine. Its a easy job shouldnt take 20 min. And the fans are cheap to...

Right, that one.

By any chance is your A/C not working? An AC/Delco radiator specialty place told me that Bonnes like to spring leaks in their evaporator cores, which get all oily on the outside, which traps dust, which clogs up the airflow. Mine'* got this problem. I think there'* a TechInfo posting on how to clean out the evaporator core (which is next to the heater core) and improve the airflow.

Good call ACG that also would be a good idea to do while your out working on your car. Its fairly easy to do even a tained ape could do it so Im sure you can do it

Sounds like your core is plugged. Read Techinfo. There'* an article on fixing this. It'll cost you about 5 bucks and an hour or two.
