I have a '96 Eddie Bauer Limited and it has the same problem. They told me that there is a small butterfly valvu located in the vac lines to select between hot or cold air. There is a tension spring connected to the valve, to an acutator, and to your ac contorl system. The spring on mine broke, so the valve opens and closes due to suction only. It is supposed to be about a $700.00 fix (due to the valves location by the firewall) but I have found a way around that. Try to aggressively apply the brakes making the vehicle slow rapidly, and at the same time turning on the blower fans with full bast heat selected. If this does not work, try doing the previous while going around a right hand corner. The corner will help the momentum of the valve turn in the right direction. Remember you have to switch the fan on full blast when you try either. If it works you should hear a thud as the valve flips shut and the heat should start coming out of the vents.

Good luck

I had a heater core problem on a Ford pick up. The problem was the core was pluged up from a stop leak formula I put in the radiator. I had to flush the stuff out of the heater core about 3 times with a garden hose.

1998 ford f150- heat issue


There is no heater valve on a 1998 ford F-150. The hoses for the heater lead directly from the engine and go to the heater case. PS The heater doors are all vacuum controlled so you might wanna look under the dash for any lines that might be disconnected

Heat won't blow when idle.


hmmm tricky, at a long shot it could be the heater control switch in the engine bay, u should be able to see this working if you get someone to sit in the cab and move the temp switch from cool to heat over and over. if this is working ok try bleeding or flushing your heater pipes. considering your getting heat when your moving but not at idle im leaning more to the bleed side of it, you could have an airlock. this would be overcome when the engine is at higher revs therefore pumping a higher volume of water and also at a faster rate through you heater lines temporarily fixing it
