Hi
I have had problem with no cabin heat..
Had thermostat replaced (know this can be the issue from other threads)
However this has helped I am now getting warm air but only if I am revving the car then goes cold again.
Air con works fine (had problem not working this was just a bulb out on dials)
So any suggestions?
many thanks in advance

Does the temp dial show 90deg +/- a few degrees once the car is warmed up?

If no, you probably still have a duff thermostat. But has the cooling system been bled since the new thermostat was fitted? If not there may be an airlock preventing proper flow.

Bleed air from the screw on the metal tube across the front of the engine (open the screw until coolant runs out, then tighten), then run the engine until it warms up enough for the top hose to get warm, with the header tank cap removed and the heater turned on. Squeezing hoses by hand can help to dislodge trapped air. Turn off, replace cap.

Hi thanks for reply.
Looking at front I managed bleed it (not really much air came out)
I'll try it again tomorrow see if any air has moved if in there..
Any other suggestions be appreciated.
Thanks
