Hey my car is having some issues with the heat. The car will warm up fine, and has good heat when Im driving, but the heat blows cold if Im not on the gas. It will become hot again once I start moving again.
This is what my mech. replaced:
-new thermostat (on two separate occasions)
-coolant flush and bleed
-swapped in new water pump.
He suggested to change the headgasket, even though there is no leak in the system...is this a logical idea??
Ive run out of ideas, I need some help before taking the car to the stealership.... thanks in advance!

I have a customer at work that's been back on a few occasions for this exact problem. Bled it twice, changed the t-stat and "burped" the cooling system real well. She is still complaining of low heat while at a light but gets hot once they start to drive. I'll be changing her headgasket when she comes back!
Interesting... this is actually my girlfriends car. Her mechanic has tried bleeding the coolant twice - Im not sure if hes credible or not.

metro:I don't understand how the headgasket would solve this problem... there is no leak.
