No more gurgle gurgle; wish I did!
decided to replace the thermostat on the 155 this weekend, as it took longer and longer to warm up in the morning, and with the cold nights recently it stayed at 70C.
After forking out 70 euros (GBP45) for a thermostat (daylight robbery, that! what do I want with an all new housing when it's just the thermostat itself that's going?), draining the system, replacing the thermostat and refilling with coolant, the engine warms up nice and quick again, but I don't! There is absolutely no heat whatsoever coming into the car. I assume there's an air lock in the heater matrix, but how to get it out? I'm stumped. I've tried hot start, cold start, fiddling with the control while revving the engine silly, doing the same on a steep incline (yes we do have those in holland; in the multi-storey!), squeezing all kinds of hoses, but no luck.
Any suggestions, anybody? I'm beginning to wonder if I did take off all the plastic caps from the new thermostat... eek! Nahh, wouldn't have been able to get the hoses to fit over them. Would I?
