1984 Mazda 929 2.0
Comfy, fun, old, cool car
The engine temperature sensor is not working. In the winter it will not heat up.
This is a very good car; no big problems. But here in the north, it gets very cold, so you need a warm car, but this car is not heating up! I don't know why, but it could be some small problem with the heating system. I hope I can get this fixed, because I like this car, and I don't want to sell it just because it doesn't heat up inside. If you know what the problem is with my car, please help me.
The ride of the car is very good and comfy. It's a bit noisy, but it's a 30 year old car. I like this car a lot too, because it's rare and it's rear wheel drive, so it's very nice in the winter to slide with the car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Is it taking a while or just not heating up?
Try running the car with the heater off; give it some time and it should warm up.
Go to http://www.mazdaforum.com/forum/ and post your question. I am sure you'll get help there.
It's just taking a while to heat up. And then when the engine is at full heat, it does give some heat, but not as much as other cars give.
I would try flushing the cooling system. I would make sure the heater core gets flushed in reverse flow direction, separate from the engine. I would inspect the heater valve, and I would replace the thermostat.
