Default Heat.....not so hot (heats slowly blows, very little) help?!

i have a 95 SSE with ECC. When i start my car (in winter) it takes quite a while too heat up, which isnt too bad but even when the heat is warm it still doesnt blow worth a snot. Every once in a while After ive been running for quite some time it seems to come from the vents a little better but nowhere near where the average car does.

Is there any way to fix this? or any tricks to make it blow harder? I thought switching to reg controls might help? i dont use the Auto on the climate control and dont care if i know the outside temp helps.
So im just looking for how to either fix this or if there are any tricks to make my heat blow harder.
thanks

Could be that your blower motor is just getting old and can no longer run very fast. That'* what happened to my '95 a few weeks ago. The fix is pretty easy and not too expensive ($45 for the new motor.)

I suppose you might also have something blocking the air flow between the blower and the heater core like a mold or crud covered evaporator.

Odds are good its the motor, though.

The procedure for remove and replace '95 SLE blower motor is detailed in this post:

One thing you might want to check before you buy a new motor. Unplug the electrical connection at the motor and put your voltmeter across the terminals of the plug going to the motor. Turn the fan on high and check for battery voltage. If you don't have a voltmeter, you can use a 12V bulb like a 194, bending the wires so they will touch the contacts in the connector. Compare the light to what you get with straight battery voltage. If the light is out or really dim, you have electrical problems other than the motor.
