You might have to purge the coolent system cause when you change stuff like that you normally have to bleed the the colent system. So what you have to do is run the car untill your temp gets to 195 degrees the cut the car off and let the coolent drain down and then refill and geep doing that untill you have heat.

No Heat My 2006 LaCrosse is not giving out any heat. I have replaced the heater core, the water pump, and the thermostat. It always seems to work until the next time the car is started. It was taken to a radiator shop today, and the radiator was flushed in case there was an air bubble. It worked - until I started it 2 hours later. It was blowing COLD air - colder than the outside air, so I assume it was the AC (even though it was set to 90 degrees). Why would it work for a minute every tim
