Customer: replied 3 years ago.
there are no leaks and i have a thermostat that i tested it works but the car overheats when its in but when i take it out the car runs fine it just has no heat
Expert:  conquest.tsi replied 3 years ago.

Try to flush the heater core...need to disconnect the two hoses that go to the fire wall then use the water hose and run water through the heater core....Put everything together ,run the engine for 10 minutes...turn it off ,wait 10 m ,check the coolant and run it again,make sure you have the heat on all the time.....let me know.....than you..
