So after reassembling everything, but before putting the clam back on I started the car to make sure everything functions correctly. The fan blows more strongly than it ever did and the new flap actuator switches positions quickly. The bad news is, there's no heat. I let the car idle for about 20 minutes, but no sign of heat from the vents. I can verify that the flaps are moving, but the coolant lines to and from the heater core, as well as the radiator, remain cold. I did pre-fill the heater with fresh coolant and topped off the system from the engine bay. The temp gauge registered 200 degrees before shut it off. I know it's cold here in the northeast, but I would think I should be detecting some heat from the system after this long. Any thoughts as to what might be amiss?
