Heater problem
1995 Vauxhall Astra 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 95 miles

Think there may be an airlock as heater is not very efficient. Unable to locate the bleed nipple - I expected it to be located near / on the expansion chamber. Can you advise

Start by removing and replacing the thermostat and flushing out the cooling system. Add 1 litre coolant. Start engine, let idle. Refill cooling system to correct level. Turn interior heater on full hot. When vehicle reaches operating temperature check coolant level is good and replace cap air should be out of system
