    Last winter, my heater started just blowing cool-cold air. I replaced the heater core at the beginning of January this year, heat worked for about a week and now it's started blowing cool-cold air again.
    Today, I have no idea if it is related in any way but I can hear liquid sloshing around when I accelerate. I don't smell anything sweet and the floors arent wet at all....
    Please help!
    Id rather not take it to a shop if I don't have to.

    If you determine that your thermostat is stuck there is a video on utube
    View: https://youtu.be/taH8wTVD3vU
    that shows how to replace.if you are adventurous enough to take it on.
