    hello all,
    l need help!!!
    i have a ford fiesta 1.3 x-reg petrol, manual. l have replaced the heater valve on it but every other day it wont blow out hot only cold then the next day it will fine. it has a 12v supply to it but is it a permanent 12v feed or only when the heater is switched on. l have 12v when blower is switched on but no reading as soon as the engine is started. where does the wire goto from the heater valve?
    :mad:

    i think these valves are controlled electronically from a module inside the car,are you sure you havnt just got an air lock in the system after changing the valve?
