I just re-read your original post and your post which is #9. What you describe is a working system.
Why do you think you have a circulation problem?Ray

so the issue is the hard hose. this is normal the hose when the engine is hot should have about 10-15 psi of pressure in it. more pressure as the temp increases / or ac on........
if the hose was soft you would have no pressure then the coolant5 boils. when that happens your temp will spike up ward...water pump will not pump air bubbles..

Sorry for the late reply Ray.....Well if what I am described is a "normal system" then it makes me curious why I have no hot air in the cab.....my son put in a new heater core when he owned it, and the blower motor is blowin air..(not hot) the 2 hoses to the core are warm.......whats next?

I am just trying to sort things out......as I said in my introductory post I have a laundry list to sort out...I found out from my son that he had scavenged parts from this (my 95) to put on his 91 Chevy lowrider, so there is no telling what I am actually dealing with. I wasn't expecting much for 500.00. The 4 biggest issues at present are the wipers, heater, brake lights, and fixing whatever is killing the battery if i don't disco it. I think the wiper issue is the multi-function switch as I have no hazards or cruise either.

if the heater is not putting out heat then this should have been in post #1.
the heater core hoses should both be hot. if warm then the heater core needs to be blown out / reversed flushed. after that run engine with pressure cap off so as to remove air bubbles. with a new engine this air bubble effect can cause the heater core not to flow properly. since the temp is correct on the gauge I would suspect the heater core is restricted...

Both of the hoses to the core are HOT. What about environmental control panel? Since everything is damn near electronic. I have also just found that "cold air blows out the floor vent only. When I turn the temp dial to hot....and the selector knob to defrost (or any other position).... it still blows out the bottom (cold). Ideas?
I have to look but the one coming out of the intake area is the rightmost hose and the one to the wp is leftmost. Right? I will check this at lunchtime.
A side note....the blower doesn't work on high either. Resistor or relay?

I checked at lunch and the hose going to the water pump is the left most hose, and the one on the intake (rear) is the right hose.
