I had to have my antifreeze tank replaced because it leaked. Now my heater only blows hot for a short time then cold. Could the cooling system need bled and if so how do you do that?

Do you
have the same problem?

Could be. Run the car at 2500 rpm for a minute or so to bleed the system. Make sure the coolant level is full.

I have tried that, drove car 70 miles or so it still blows cold most of the time. It seems like it blows warm when I m on the hwy. But goes cold as soon as I slow down. This is about the only time it blows warm air. Don't know what to try?

Sounds like the heater core may be clogged with debris.
