Re: no hot air

Hi Wayne .... It could be an air lock.


Undo the radiator type cap on the expansion tank and squeeze the rad top and bottom hoses aswell as smaller heater hoses. You may see bubbles in the top as you do it "thats good",once your happy theres no more air try starting the car with the lid still off. (KEEP AN EYE ON IT) as it circulates, put the cap back on after 5 or 10 mins.
