Hey I just opened it up yesterday. The motor turns freely. I watched it turn no grinding and no problem. I let the car run 10 minutes yesterday. I felt the big hose coming off the radiator and going to the water outlet. That was warm. The hose coming off the outlet was a little cooler going into the tee. The hose going from the other side of the tee going into the heater core was colder. Could the heater core be clogged. If it is how I just replaced it and the car rarely runs. Or could the thermostat be broken. Is their a way to test the thermostat. I know it is inside the water outlet. Thanks.
