Dave Yeah, I put it on there myself, and turned it up and down a good number of times to make sure I had it on right. The selector on the new ones is pretty much idiot proof. It attaches to the control valve one way, and 1 way only... To answer Grunff and James's questions A kink in the hose? I'm pretty sure I didn't get that. I've got pretty decent air flow coming out of the vents. Why are you sure? What did you do to bleed air out of the heater core? I'm not sure. I've never had to bleed air out of a coolant system before. Is bleeding air out of the heater core different than bleeding air out of the coolant system at the thermostat housing? What I did was open up the valve before the thermostat opened, and closed it once i saw some antifreeze flowing out. Initially, I had figured that filling up the coolant system completely would fix my issue, but that hasn't worked either. > Does anyone have an idea what this is?

I can fix computers, build networks, architect email systems, peoplesoft environments, etc. But with cars, I'm semi-adept at best.
