Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The thermostat is new replace it about 3 months ago.
Chevy Mechanic: Gary, Chevy Technician replied 2 years ago

this either is low on coolant or the thermostat is opening way too early or the temp door electric actuator is not operating the temp door to full hot

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I filled it up with coolant, The hose going from the radiator to the thermostat housing is extremely hot. I looked under the dash the actuator throttle is moving. The hose coming from the engine to the heater core is hot the hose coming out of the heater core to the thermostat is cold or barely warm.
Chevy Mechanic: Gary, Chevy Technician replied 2 years ago

you see the temp actuator moving to hot then cold when you turn the temp setting ?

Hi in reggie if I'm understanding you one of your heater core hoses is hot the other is cold? Have you disconnected the cold hose while running to see if you have any flow? I like to keep some clear hose handy for a problem like this I'll take the inlet and outlet hose and replace then with clear that way I can observe while running
