it starts to mist after it idols and it has no heat at all even when i had the new thremostat in it

do you loose coolant ? if so how much coolant does it loose ?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

its not letting anything flow threw

Ok Penny

you are down to 2 things that will cause the coolant not to flow

either a blocked or restricted radiator or the most common a head gasket allowing combustion to get into the coolant system and the compression will over power the coolant and stop it from flowing

most parts stores sell a tester called block tester this test will test the coolant system for any emissions getting into the coolant system the odds are the test will show up positive for emissions in the coolant system which shows the head gaskets are bad

if the test shows up negative have the coolant system flushed out if it still does this it has to be the head gaskets causing this problem you have
