No heat !!!

Ok I changed my degas bottle to the new style. My heads were
Done about 3 months ago so it is not the heads. I am not loosing
Coolant at all. Does not over heat at all. My coolant is Cat ELC coolant
I turn on the heat and the input side of the heater gets hot but the
Output side stays cold unless u get on the skinny pedal a few times
Then it will heat up and stay hot. When driving it only gets Luke warm.
I was wondering if it could be the thermostat or water pump because they are the only things I have not replaced on the truck.
They don't cost much so I am doing them this weekend just want to see if I am in the right direction. Thanks

Do you have a monitor you can save yourself a few bucks bucks by checking your temps and that will show if your thermostat is shot. I'm thinking it is more heater core related.

Yeah I hear ya if you turn on the heat there are the too heater core house one has a valve one that's controlled by vaccum. If you grab them careful when up to temp is one way hotter then the other? I would think if the heater core has a restriction in it the one hose returning to the engine would be colder then the other. I know my heat will burn me outta the can at about 150 degrees

How many miles were on the coolant system between changes? It sounds like a clogged heater core to me. You might want to drain the coolant in clean containers (to re-use it) and do a flush. The Fleetguard Restore and Restore Plus work very well for this and aren't too harsh on the gaskets and seals. If you need a good write-up on how to do this shoot me an email and I'll get you the info. You can find some info on these cleaners below.

my truck has the same problem i figured out. from some reason on all the setting on the right side of 12 oclock (off)postion the a/c compressior runs i can here it turn on and off and the line is ice cold. the only way i have found to turn the compressor off is the frist setting on left side 11 oclock postion.

I had blown head gaskets when I bought the truck. The guy I bought it from said he did the gaskets 2 years before I bought it so about 4 years ago. I do need to flush it again though because the elc coolant looks like a rusty mud color.

I guess all the crap in the system settles in the heater core. Can I back flush the core or just replace it?

If you think it's plugged I would just replace it. I checked Rockauto and the heater core is relatively inexpensive. I will say that I just replaced my head gaskets, which were blown, and I had the same heating issues and now that they're fixed it's gone away.

I just put a new napa coolant bottle on, the cap went on kinda funny, only grabbing a few threads before it clicked and I immediatly noticed I had no heat after that bottle/cap went on. Got a new cap that screwed down tight now my heat works.
