I have had my radiator flushed 3 times and I do not have very much heat coming through the vents. It seems like as long as the car is going at least 40-45mph there is some heat but if I have to stop at a stoplight it's as if I have my ac on max.
Do you
have the same problem?

The heater cores in these cars clog up with sludge very quickly, once this happens even flushing the cores is only a temporary fix. Either replace the core, or try clampling the long bypass hose that runs behind the engine.
