Your original complaint was intermittent heat, so that's what I'm dealing with. Check the T stat and flush the cooling system if it's still not working right, have the cooling system flushed. Step by step.
Thanks again, Ron
Yes there are special tools to remove the stat to check it. You may as well replace it seeing that you're already there. The flushing for debris in the system is done with a pressure machine. This mist likely is not something you can do at home.
You're welcome, thank you too and please don't forget to rate me.
Possibly, but we need to start doing a bit more diagnostics and less reading. We'll ever find the true problem until we start doing some work/diagnostics.
