Default Re: changed thermostat now i got no heat HELP!

The heater core is likely air locked. Try bleeding the air from it. The colder hose is the one you want to work with. On the engine side (engine off, rad cap off) slide the clamp down the hose and loosen the hose from the fitting but leave it in place. Start the car and use a smaller screw driver to create a gap between the hose and the fitting. This will let the air out and should let the coolant flow through the heater core. When you start to get coolant coming out of the opening remove the screw driver and see if you start to get heat. You will likely need to do it a few times and maybe even on the the other hose.
