For the same reason coolant is pumped from the bottom of the engine up, heat rises. Allowing coolant flow from the bottom up allows it to heat the core most efficiently.

Plus the inlet and outlets are two different sizes of hose so its impossible to mix them up.

Theoretically it should have flow, otherwise it would never get warm. The same fluid would just sit there all the time.

My thermometer is dead steady on 210, so I don't think that would be the problem, and I thought the heater core was part of the engine circuit, not effected by the thermostat...

Heater Core Flow Direction

This is not a how to question, this is a flow direction question.

I'm assuming the "hot" coolant would go in through the top connector of the heater core, and the return "cool" coolant would come back through the bottom connector of the heater core.

I'm planning on flushing the heater core this weekend as my heat is warm, but not blazing like it used to be. I just want to make sure I back flush it the first go.

Thank you!
