From operating experience

Of course, on the Volga the stove is not a fountain. Because the engine on these cars operates in completely different temperature conditions compared to VAZ cars. Therefore, you need to take this into account in winter.

To achieve a comfortable temperature inside the car, you need to shade the engine radiator and insulate both the engine compartment itself and the interior. Ensure the tightness of doorways, etc.

Recently, many Volga drivers have begun to install an additional electric pump on the small circle of the cooling system. Pretty good results.

And of course you need to check the condition of the stove radiator. Many people think that their radiator is clogged. Although upon opening and disassembling it turned out that the radiator honeycombs were simply clogged with leaves and dust on the outside.

You should not forget that the coolant flows through the heater radiator in a small circle. The thermostat forces it to do this, which must be closed while the engine is warming up.

And if for some reason the thermostat was removed or does not work correctly, then the proper temperature of the stove cannot be achieved.
