I'm pretty sure the core is pluged, but I'll ask anyway.

Is my heater core pluged?.. The fan blows cold air at me, If I give the thottle a shot there is a little bit of warm air then cold again, But, if I put it on recycle so its not sucking the outside air, it will get a little bit warm. Never hot.

and yes I changed the Tstat, new rad, fluid is topped up.

thanks

When you have the heat "turned on" do you smell coolant at all on the inside of the vehicle? Chances are your heater core is just totally gummed up with corrosion and needs to be replaced.

Take the hoses off the core and back flush it.. Take a water hose and put it in what is the outlet and wash everything out of the inlet...

It worked for me...

My old zj and my xj had these problems, i just got a new thermostat and a radiotor and now my heat works fine, it was leaking antifreeze bad, im not really sure if it was my heater core or not? I think it was because of a bad heater core in my zj tho.
