Question about Vauxhall Cars & Trucks
Cooling sestem back flushe new stat fitted pies to heater matrix one hot other cool
Assuming the fan works ok, it sounds like the cable from hand control to heater valve has come off or needs adjusting or replacing. Or (less likely) there is a problem with the mechanical valve. The valve needs to open to allow hot water to flow through to the mini radiator (heater radiator) and then both coolant pipes and mini radiator get hot with a warm engine. Try moving the valve lever by hand (somewhere above the clutch pedal).and If you start getting heat with the fan on the fault is the cable..

When cold, remove plug of the temperature sensor usually found at the top of the radiator (but may be on thermostat area)
Check sensor with a meter - should be normally open (non conducting)
If faulty, fit a replacement. (undo cap of coolant system, then retighten, undo and replace sensor quickly to avoid too much coolant loss, then top up system.) You can drain the system, but sometimes causes airlocks and more problems.

Did you burp the air out of the system after changing those parts? It sounds like the thermostat isn't opening which is why the lower hose is still cold. Click my screenname, go to my tips and tricks, and choose the one about burping the cooling system - it may help you out.
