wait....wut???

if you replaced the thermostat and bled the system properly, and are not overheating, then you should have plenty of heat.

you *could* have a restricted heater valve, or heater core, but you will need to use a proper infra red thermometer to get accurate temp readings.

otherwise you're going to be guessing.

and guessing gets expensive....


i say go back and double check the cooling system is bled. these are tough enough for experienced automotive technicians, so it has been my experience that almost 90% of diy'ers that have done this have not done it properly.
