Default No heat

I can't get any cabin heat. I flushed the heater core, thermostat and radiator. It blows cold air but not hot. Any ideas?

Does it in fact have a thermostat in it? If so, maybe it's not a 195 but a 180 or 160. Original equipment is a 195. If that's okay, I'd suggest you check the temperature control cable. It's adjustable and maybe one of the clips has come loose? IDK, just guessing. Did you try back flushing the heater core too?

+1 on the temp control

Assuming the car is getting up to temp. These things can stick. It is fairly common. Mine is getting there. Knock on wood I haven't had the problem yet. On my old Ramcharger, the cable broke and we would just move the valve under the hood. Ah, a much happier, simpler time.

I'm just wondering where you are that you need the heat right now. My eggs are frying inside my shorts this time of year here in Hell.

Check the coolant level. It should be filled up to the top under the radiator cap. Check when the engine is cold.
