Does the fan operate at all the different speeds or only at one speed? If so which speed?

Does the air that you do feel coming out of the vents seem warm?

You'll need to give us a few more details to work on because this could be caused by many things.

Cheers,

Na, my car has no problem getting warm. Infact it is leaps and bounds above the Grand Prix. I always atributed it to the the fact that is has the rear vents and heats/cools the car evenly and all at once.

First step would to be to make sure you're topped off on coolant. If you're low, it'll starve the heater core before damaging the engine.

The fan operates at different speeds. It blows sort of hot but it might need some coolant our water I will check, but as I said before it takes farly long time to warm up car but it never really get to a comfortable temp. But could it be an very old fan that doesn't blow hard, I clean the evaporator this summer then the fall so I don't no

Check vac lines especially to the vac canister. It'* to the left of your brake booster and to the right of the fuse/relay panel. Or the black thing in the back of the engine bay with two little vac lines running into it.
When mine get knocked loose, my vents won't blow hot.
It'* a possiblity, check it out.

And i could find the canister you were talking about what is the brake booster do you have any pictures and what does that canister do control the heater vents of heater
