Replaced the heater control valve and flushed the whole system. refilled it and bled it and now i get heat, i also had a minor leak somewhere so i dropped in some leak repairer which stopped the leaking so it was probably a combination of things which caused the issue. All fun and games now i got a whirling noise from the rear offside wheel so it looks like I got bearing to replace when it gets warmer.
Why on earth would you use a stop leak product unless you were planning on trashing the motor? In my situation I had a hole in the block.. I didnt have much choice. But to use stop leak when you can just fix it, is beyond retarded, sorry.. That crap clogged my heater core as well.
