Firstly I took out the Rig for a play the other day, was fantastic, got bogged, got winched had fun and covered her in mud. Fantastic day all round.
However now a week later the heater has stopped working completely, it was always a bit asthmatic from the PO but now it just pumps out cold cold cold air. Now this is a problem in Canberra, where at the moment we're having -5 mornings. Yes it could be colder, o well. I moved to Australia for a reason.
So recently (when it was asthmatic and well before the day out) I have flushed the heater core and that got it working better. Today after driving home for twenty minutes and still having cold air come out I checked the heater core hoses in the engine bay, both were warm, not even close to hot unlike the top hose on the radiator, this nearly burned my hand, this would explain why I have no hot air in the cab. So any ideas what is causing this? My UN-educated guess would be the thermostat, so I am looking to replace this.
Is this a logical step in diagnosis or will I be wasting my time?
Cheers guys, also check out the Pics from the day out.
