1979 Vette


Can anyone help with a problem i have with my1979 L82..?
There is a bubbling sound coming from the back of the glove box after the car warms up.The heater works fine, but the AC has never worked in the 3 years i have had the car.I have been out in the car for over an hour and the water temp' stays at 220 and does not overheat.... Any ideas..?

Probably just a bit of air in the coolant stuck in the heater matrix..

When I replace a thermostat, I bore a couple of 3mm holes each side of the flange to allow any air to escape to the radiator top. In the old days, thermostats used to have a wee toggle valve thingy to allow this.

As Steve says and you will need to bleed the system of air with the heater valves open, another trick I learned off Steve was park it on a hill so the radiator cap is uppermost, if you do this, you will need some good chocs, you can not rely on the hand brake to hold it.
