When the car starts to become warm i have some heat but luke warm at best. The heat only lasts about 2-3 minutes then becomes cold. the heater core has been flushed with hose and system flush. after driving for a while (15 minutes or so) the car surpasses normal and climes half way between normal and hot and heater doesn't help. Does anyone know how to figure out whether it is the heater core or the water pump? The T-stat has been replaced recently and I have a few others I keep around to test just in case.
Every morning especially when it's cold outside there is a whirring noise almost a whine but lasts about 15 seconds.

Then I am inclined to think you have a air block in the core.
Get her nose high in the air with it warm and running and see if she'll burp herself.
Might try putting a "flushing "T"" in one of the heater hoses.
Make sure the valve is all the way open,
I believe you will find this close to the bulkhead on one of the heater hoses under the bonnet.
The cable could has slipped it's mooring.
How come we see all these non factory T-stats in question?
Maybe they're J _ _ K?

Rob would that be th XT6 on Locust? I had to stop when i saw it for sale while on my route. Funny it doesn't look to be in bad shape at all for that price.
