Why doesn't my heat work? Replaced the thermostat, reconnected the hose from the blower.

Hi:
With the engine hot, running, and the heater on high, check to see if both heater core hoses are hot.

Let me know what you find.

It should be located on the same housing that the heater core is in. Exact position, I can't say but it should open and close when you change from cold to hot.
