I checked both hoses from the radiator, one was hot initially. Then after a few minutes the other got hot too, which means the thermostat opened right? There is no heat through the heater, just cold air. Could it be because of improper bleeding? heater valve? or a sensor?
Same symptoms happened to me with my m20. Was due to air trapped in the system due to improper bleeding
