I have no heat in my SUV. I have changed the heater core both hoses were hot earlier today but it was smoking, so I let it cool down and pulled it a part again and check it out everything was together. Now I check it the vehicle is hot but hoses are cold.
Do you
have the same problem?

Good morning.
Did the truck overheat at any time? Sounds like air in the system the second time but the question is where did the air come from?

When you command heat and cold, can you hear the blend door motor working the door back and forth?

No, it did not overheat at all. How would I check for air in the heater core?

You cannot check it, it needs to be bled.

Remove the radiator cap and run the engine at 1200 rpm's, have someone watching the coolant level while you are keeping the engine running. Top off as needed. If it is air you should get heat after around five to eight minutes. Then top off coolant and install the cap.

Did you check the blend door?
