[DMCForum] Re: Air flow differences between hot & cold



A somewhat reduced amount of airflow is normal on any car. When you
increase the heat, you're moving a flap to force more air thru a
radiator coil, otherwise known as a heater core.

Normally you shouldn't really notice too much of a change at all. At
most, you *might* hear the sound pitch of the air change as it comes
out of the vents. But for what you're describing, it sounds like the
fins on your heater core are plugged up.
