Question about 1995 Jeep Cherokee

Part for heater control valve???

Hi, my brother says I need a new heater control valve type thing. He's not sure of the name of it, but periodically the engine on my 95 Cherokee overheats. It is leaking out of something that is located near the middle part of the engine, not where the radiator is. Would you have any idea of what exactly the name is? We don't have the owner's manual, and I haven't been able to find what he is talking about. It looks like there are a few different smaller hoses coming from them.

    Sorry for the vagueness. It's a 1995 Jeep Cherokee. It has 4 hoses attached to it, and the actual part that the hoses are connected to leaks. Where it is attached to the top is where it seems to leak the most, but I cannot tell if it is leaking in other areas of the part or not. He said he thinks it's a heater hose control valve (as you suggested) but isn't sure and thinks it's a part that has to come from a dealership, says they don't carry them at the auto parts store. I took the Jeep to Auto Zone and showed the guy where it was leaking, he said he had no idea what it was called. Hope that clarifies things.

    Went to the dealer today, it is called a water valve. It's an all plastic part and there are 4 different hoses that attach to it. (Just in case anyone else ever needs to know what it's called.) Also, it is indeed a dealer item only.

    Thank you again for your help!

    Talk about vague, well sounds like the heater control valve, should have a hose in and out and a small hose to the top.

It is most likely a dealer item only, go to the dealer, they will help you ID and get the right part.

Heater control valv doesnt operate.feels like control valve lever on dash is not hooked up to any thing. fan , defrost, vent etc lever above does work and blower does work but only getting cold air. as I...

Sounds like the cable is disconnected from the water valve. Check under hood at the fire wall where heater hoses connect to heater core. Water control valve should be in one of the two hoses and the cable end should be visible . Water is off when A/C is on.

My heater isn't do i fix it?

Here's a list of possible culprits:

Priority Action Part Type Cause
1 Inspect - Antifreeze Needed - Coolant Level Low.
2 Inspect - Heater Control Valve - Leaking or Faulty Heater Control Valve.
3 Inspect - Thermostat - Thermostat Stuck Open.

First thing to check is your engine coolant level - quick and free.
Since your blower works, my nominee for the offending part would be the Heater Control Valve, which redirects hot coolant into the passenger compartment heater core. Without hot coolant, the blower will just blow cold air, since the heater core isn't getting the needed flow of hot coolant through it.
There may also be a fault in the "Temperature Valve Actuators" (there is a right hand and a left hand version of these - one for each side of the car).
The Right hand Temperature Valve Actuator is AC Delco part #15-72971.
The Left hand Temperature Valve Actuator is AC Delco part #15-72972.
Their pictures are available in the online AC Delco Parts Catalog at:

2000 s-type heater only blows cold air. Pulled the heater control valve. How do I tell if its good or bad?

If it is a vacuum controlled unit, you will need one of the small vacuum hand pumps to hook to the valve and watch the internal baffle plate move with change in vacuum level. There may be a local parts dealer that will let you borrow one for the test (and sell you a new part if needed). If the valve seems to work ok, then check the engine area looking for a loose or damaged vacuum hose. Lastly, the temperature control panel may be defective. Check the hose going to the valve for damage. Make sure the heater hoses going to the core are very hot when the engine is warmed up. If they remain cold, something is blocking water flow through them.

I have a 2000 Jeep Cherokee and the heater does not heat

Check to see if the temp door is changing to heat,If that is fine,Then make sure the thermostat is good,maybe just replace it,and refill the radiator,and reservoir with coolant.The heater hoses going into the heater core need to be checked,while the engine is real hot,to make sure the heater hose going in the heater core,and out of the heater core are both to warm to hold by the naked hand.If only one of them is hot,and the other one is warm,to cold to the touch,then remove the heater hoses from the heater core,and use a water hose to flush the heater core out.Put the water hose in one side and flush the heater core out with the force of the water hose pressure.Then do the other heater core pipe the same way.Then replace the heater hoses back on the heater core,and refill the radiator.Make sure to get enough coolant back in the radiator.If there is not enough,the coolant will not flow threw the heater core and put out heat.I hope this is helpful,and you can do the work yourself.You may want to check those heater hose first thing.And change the thermostat anyway,sense you will have some coolant lose from flushing the heater core.If this helps,please let us know,thank you.

Problems with heating

If you are saying the car heater doesn't get warm the first thing to check is antifreeze level if it gets to low you won't get heat

Heater runs hot full time had new valve s type jag alan

Without additional information, it sounds like the new heater valve is not connected electronically. Without voltage the valve will default into an open position, causing the heat to stay on. check electrical connection to valve, simply press on top of connector to ensure tight fit. if ok, check fuse.
Once its connected properly the valves will close automatically and will only allow hot water to flow to heater core when driver turns it on from climate control switch.
