With the engine running and warmed up and the heater on if you place your hand on the heater hose at the fireball where they connect are both hoses getting nice and hot?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
the holes on this one has one at driver side and one at passenger side, the one on the driver side get hot but the passenger one is cool / warm

If there is air in the systems how can i get it out?
Expert:  Ron replied 1 month ago.

If both hoses are not evenly hot then you are likely dealing with trapped air. The best way to bleed this system is with a vacuum bleeder. See if you can get your hands on one of these. There commonly used here in the states for bleeding and I would assume they are there as well. See the link below.
