It should never take 30 min. for the car to get warm...
Congrats on reading 101, I graduated that also.
But I don't see anywhere where he answered my question.
I know, if it does get warm in 30 minutes I would also say that the thermostat is stuck open. If it does NOT get warm in 30 minutes then he has a bigger issue.
I've had thermostats stuck open in my vehicles before and they will eventually get warm. All I was asking was to see if that's the case.
