My car has been having issues lately with the heater not working. Today I finally got sick of it and was told to replace the thermostat. I put in a new thermostat and I'm still not getting heat. Can anyone here tell me what is wrong, and how to fix it? TIA.

Heater core could be bound up with an air bubble.
Would I just have to replace the core then?
Why did you pick that crazy post to respond to?
Rotate the rear flange topwise and you'll be set.
Could be this OR the actual AC/heater control has gone bad. That happened in my Chrysler and I swapped it out.

Did you bleed the system?
Turbo is shot. Going to have to replace it.
I was told to open the valve until I saw fluid. I opened it and almost immediately had fluid come out.
This. Could also be a water jacket - the piece the thermostat slips into.
Do you have enough wiper fluid? Are your tires fully inflated? Is the blinker properly turning off after you complete your turn? Is the AM/FM radio working properly within reasonable distances from the signal? Does the steering wheel make the tires move when you turn it?
If the answer to any of these questions is no, then you almost certainly need to replace the right side rear seat belt. That should fix her right up.
You didn't state the model and year of your car. A lot of the newer models have a lot tighter tolerances and even a simple job like a themostat replacement requires you to bleed the system and get rid of all the air bubbles. Not always easy.
If your car is older you may have so much crap in your cooling system the heater coil is getting filled with stuff or your radiator has so much sediment sitting in it you aren't getting good performance because the total system volume has been reduced. In those cases you may need a new heater core and/or a new radiator.

Check your heater control valve. You need the heater control valve to work properly because it helps the heater core work properly. Check the heater control valve under your hood. If your car is running, the vacuum line or cable running from the heater core to the valve should be warm to the touch. If it is not warm, then the control valve may be stuck in place and you should put in a new one. Make sure if you replace this to check the coolant levels again. Just google the make and model of your car, it will help you find the control valve. If the heaterr core was plugged or bad, normally the car will over heat or your windshield would steam up because it's inside the car under the passenger side of the dashboard.
