    Heater / Cold Air Blowing

    Howdy!

    I have a 2003 WRX. Recently, the heater takes longer to warm up and then it seems like it only wants to work when the car is in motion. Stopping at red lights gives cold air.

    I'm kind of a newbie at cars in general (more or less) so I hopped this rang some bells for people.

    Thanks!

    Have you opened the cooling system recently? Radiator, hoses etc.?

    I haven't but I did have it in for the oil change last week and they dug around a bit. That might've even been when it started happening. Huh.

    I'd check for circulation and leaks, and if the system has been opened I'd burp the system.
