Re: [DML] Re: Heating system question

I'd like to put my 2 cents in on this.

Another cause for there not being enough heat is related to what you 
found.  If you have failing head gaskets and air(exhaust) is escaping 
into the coolant system the first item to fail would be the heater 
core.  If the leak gets worse, the exhaust gases will cause a large 
bubble and no coolant will flow then the engine will overheat.

I'm not saying thats your cause, but I would keep a keen eye on that.  
One clue is if you find yourself always bleeding the coolant system to 
get a decent amount of heat.

It did have a good bit of air in the housing I'm not sure how that affects the rest of the cooling system. If I hook up a hose to the bleed screw, it doesn't bleed until the system reaches about 150-160, so does this mean my thermostat is opening early at 160? Or does it bleed even if the thermostat is closed? I'm in the process of ordering a new one, I just hope that is the trouble with the system. -----Dani B. #5003
