no heat svo 2.3
hey guys i cant seem to fix this problem. ive read everything i can find on the issue and nothing is fixing this problem. i recently replaced a head gasket on my 84 svo and now there is no heat...just sitting idling the engine will not even reach 100 on my autometer gauge
few things i changed while i did the head gasket.
added an external oil cooler and did away with the coolant oil cooler (ran lines directly to heater core.
the coolant line coming off the bottom of the intake was rerouted into the block where the stock gauge sender goes.
cars front end was put on jack stands to try to burp the system but i dont think the thermostat even opened up because there was very little water flow through the radiator
i drove it for a while and it barely hit 150 on the guage, upper radiator hose was hott but didnt see water flowing through the radiator, replaced the water pump and no change.
thermostat was recently replaced as well as heater core,
i read somewhere that there is some type of recall or something with the ford water necks on the 2.3 but couldnt find any more info other then for put out a bulletin about them. does anyone know what this is about
sorry for the long posted but thats everything i can think of, its winter here in NY so i need the heat
thanks in advance
