does both heater hoses get hot that is connected to the core?
does the engine get hot,or does it run normal
the heater hoses do not seem to get hot.
the engine seems to run fine and the fans turn on and like they should.
but there is no temp gauge just a light and have never seen it come on.
the water in the raditor does get hot and seems to cycle just fine.
can.t see where the heater hose goes from the bottom of core it dissapears into the engine?? could there be a valve thats not opening??
if the hoses dont get hot...the core3 is clogged or it still has an air pocket in it...i know you said air will go through it but coolent may not
HEATER CORE NOTE: The OEM service manual does not provide images for this procedure.TOOL REQUIRED:

how do I make sure the acuator is working?
by pulling a vacuum on it ..it should open...also check your vacuum solinoid
Just wanted you to know that the heater core was not the problem.
I did what you suggested and it did nothing but cost me time and money.
After all of that the hose from the heater core to the thermastate was clogged.
The repair only took 3 min. instead of the hours to replace the core.
glad you got it
