Had problem with my heater blower not working replaced that now I am not getting hot air only cold !!! I am guessing this is the heater matrix gone is that right ? I have checked the stat it works but is a little slow too open is it worth replacing the stat any way could that still be the problem ? The weather is turning and I am getting colder by the day!

Which car ?

If its a mk2 they air lock easily after an a/f change.
if you have removed the stat altogether then they are a right c**t to bleed and youll run cold all the time..

If when you filled it up did you open the heater controls ?
If not then you will air lock it and youll have a job to shift it.

to clear it....
Run it up and open the expansion bottle, before it gets too warm put your lips on the bottle and seal it now blow as hard as you can and pressurise the bottle hard !!
it should move it and itll gurggle!!
now rev it hard (4-5k) a few times.
it will need topping up if it unlocks.

The sure way to tell if the matrix is gone is to touch the floor, itll be wet and smell of antifreeze and your screen will always fog up.

If youre struggling call me and I'll talk you through it or bring it over and I'll clear it for you.

It's draining it that causes the air lock !!

Open the heater (put it in hot position) top it and pressure it, then give it a good thrash, it'll help clear it.

ive never put my lips to the bottle before to pressurize it but otherwise i do the same!

you may find that air will come out for ages, i bled my 5door mk2 for about half hour and it was still gurgling, also ive done it a few times over a week and everytime the air kept coming out.

its also made easier by putting a bleed hole in the outer ring of the thermostat
