    My heater has'nt worked since I bought this car and I gotta fix it. The AC works fine but the heater blows regular cold lukewarm air when on. The guy I got it from was adament it was'nt the heater core which I specially asked and told him it was'nt a deal breaker I just wanted to fix it. He said that some mechanic he knows said he needed to blow compressed air thru his system and it should fix the problem. Does any of this sound right??

    What could it be give me thermastat? heater core?

    I also have a leaking radiater around the end drain plug and also around a plug with a spring at the bottom of the other side of the radiater leaking. I just have to keep adding antifreeze every 2-3 days. I'm about to put in a del sol radiater this weekend could this be related??

    you could try flushing the system...
    compressed air = NO
    coolant reaches a capacity of what 11 or 13 pounds?
    i'd be worried or puncturing it with too much compressed air...

    other things to look for...
    thermostat is always a culprit, also make sure your "blender valve" is working... thats what controls the warm water inflow to the heater core...

    Wrong forum.

    Your radiator leaking could definitely be related.
