CAR OVER HEATING AND HEAT DOES NOT

1994 Oldsmobile Achieva

Heater problem
1994 Oldsmobile Achieva 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 109000 miles

After replacing the water pump, heater coil and thermostat, about a month later, I came out to start the car this morning, I see the leak in the radiator, which is telling me I need to put more antifreeze in the car, and replace the radiator or fix the small crack in the plastic, which I have. But now why isn't the heat coming on? Kinda overnight, heat was working fine yesterday, now this morning is not working at all, fan is on. Does the leak have anything to do with the heat not warming up? Car is running hot, really fast. Is this just because of the cracked radiator and leak?

Based on your description, it sounds like there is an air pocket. Did you try to bleed the system?
