You need to discharge the AC system and remove the evaporator to replace the expansion valve. No two way about it.

No need to remove the dash

SOURCE: Replace heater core for Honda Accord 1992 LX 2.2L

It's probably the valve in the cooling hose that lets coolant flow into your heater core. This is up against the firewall about 3/4 of the way down on the passenger side. When you switch the knob from warm to cool, you should be able to see the little "arm" on the hose move back and forth. You may need someone else to watch as you move the temperature knob back and forth.

Also, watch out for over heating (not due to the valve), because it could mean that you could need to replace your water pump and/or thermostat in the near future. If you haven't replaced your timing belt recently (or if you have) and didn't change the water pump at the same time (Honda recommended) Your water pump could be failing.

Odds are pretty good though that it's just where the cable connects to the valve. It may have rusted over time and stuck, or broke the end of the cable, or just need lubricating/bending back into place.

If this is not the case, then you may just have a clogged heater core and should have your coolant system thoroughally flushed in the near future. If none of these work, you may need to replace your heater core.

Drop me a line when you check these over and I'll see what I can come up with.

SOURCE: heating in my 95 honda accord

Here's my list! 1st-check coolant level, if it's low, u won't get heat. 2nd Is engine reaching operating temp within about 5 minutes or a little more? If it is running below the normal level, the thermostat may be stuck open, not allowing the car to reach operating temp, again, no heat. 3rd dash control not working to turn on heat. The heat control is vacuum operated, so if there is a leak or kink in the vac line, it won't work. (not too common). Many cars (I'll have to check on the 95 accord) have a heater control valve in the heater hose line under the hood near the firewall. Sometimes the valve just gets stuck in the closed position, so again, no heat as the hot coolant can't circulate into the heater core.4th plugged heater core. Corrosion, rust plugs up the heater core, coolant can't circulate, no heat.
Start w/ the easy cheap fixes, work your way down, let me know if u need more info. and how u make out.

NO heat at idle??

Your heater core is partially blocked. I know you flushed it, but you can't get all of the sediment out and make it flow under low RPM because of the blockage caused by scale and oxidation caused by minerals in water/coolant. Try to flush it again using CLR, and if that doesn't work, you'll most likely have to replace it. Hope this helped!

try back flushing your heater core find the 2 hoses to the heater and start the motor let it run for a bit feel the hoses 1 should get hot and 1 should be a little cooler the 1 that gets hot is the inlet and the cooler 1 is the outlet remove them after the motor has cooled down and use a garden hose to back flush the core flush water through the outlet you dont need to use high pressure if you do there is a chance the core can crack and leak.

2006 honda accord ex. No heat on driver side and passenger side not is just warm? Car does blow air. I have coolant and hoses are hot??? Checked the actuatlor as well. It moves back and forth when I...

The heater core can partially plug (internally) causing heat from only one side of the dash vents. You can try to flush just the heater core itself, but most of the time the heater core asy requires replacement.

No heat on 96 Accord can move hot water control valve with no effect.

I would check the evaporator core temperature sensor output levels and compare them to a haynes manual's recommended values. If this is fine, maybe the heater control circuit has gone out, or a heater fuse.

Weak heat from my 91 honda accord

SInce your car is approaching 20 yrs of age, it's not surprising that the heater core could be clogged. I assume you have checked for a half-shut inline heater valve (if there is one.) HEre's how to test for the clogged core:

locate two rubber hoses going into firewall and clamped to two pipes protruding therefrom. These are your hoses to the heater core and the spouts running in and out of it. Disconnect the two hoses at some place convenient if not at firewall. Then run water hose into one of these tubes. If you have any backflow, or restriction, then you need a heater core.

If this is not a clogged core, BE SURE your hot/cold cable is pulling it's door or valve to the full hot position. Trace it under dash.

96 Jeep Country-Heater blowing warm; NOT hot

unless you got visable signs of leakage its not heater core, but it could be pluged with sediment. take off both heater hoses and flush it both ways until it runs clear. you can also mix a little baking soda and water and pour in core and let set for a while and then flush.

Heater only blows hot air when pressing on the gas pedel.

that is most likely caused by a lack of coolant flow thru your heater core, have your local repair facility ( or yourself if you are able) flush the heater core.

They only need to flush the heater core, this is no the same as a coolant flush as that puts very little pressure on the heater sore and will not be sufficiant to dislodge any debris in the heater core.
