No Heat!!!

I've recently noticed that I've got No Heat in my car! Not that I need it too much living in Florida this time of year, but while driving around 55mph, the temp gauge started poping from the 1/2 mark up to the 3/4 mark. I decided to turn on the heat and try to lower the temp. Low and behold, no heat....., it just blew outside temp air. When I stop, in traffic, etc.. it climbs to the 3/4 mark pretty quickly. The water pump, thermostat and cooling fans were replaced less than 3K ago. The fans come on a little lower than the 3/4 mark. The system has had the air bled out of it, and I'm scratching my head. My first thought is thermostat....but would that keep me from having heat? Two seperate problems? I really don't feel like ruining my weekend dealing w/ the dreaded snap ring.....

Probably two seperate issues, the heat issue is probably the little plastic clip that holds the mixing door arm to the servo motor. It costs about $2 at the dealer. Do a search on "heater clip" and you will even get the part number.

As for your cooling issue, either you have an air pocket or it might be time for a new radiator. I replaced my rad last summer and it made a huge difference.
