2003 x type. air trapped after replacing filler tank and hoses. Hose going to heater matrix is HOT but hose leading from matrix is cold. heater blowing cold or slightly warm. Engine cooling is fine

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Jaguar. The Jaguar Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

No heat from heater.....blowing cold ....see previous comment

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Great! What have you tried so far?

Running engine with coolant cap off, squeezing all the hoses I can get at. note, hose leading frm heater matrix is cold

Jaguar Mechanic: Kevin, Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok there are no bleed points on x type so let engine cool then start again . Turn heater in car on full heat full fan speed then run with cap off whilst topping up if nacessary . If car starts to overheat turn off allow to cool and start again

I've done that several times and yesterday I had a 3 hour motorway drive. St
ill blowing cold. Mechanic looked at it today and said air is the problem
Jaguar Mechanic: Kevin, Technician replied 2 years ago

Air is unlikely to be the problem after a*****. Was heater working before replacement parts?
