Locate Heater Core

Both had same problem,
the plastic arm to open/close flow through the heating core broke at the
point of attachment for the cable to the temperature selector on the
climate control module. Since the cable was not moving the actuator arm
to the heat position, no heat. On one car, arm was stuck in the open
positon only hot air; other in closed position-no heat. By removing the
radio/contorl module bezel and the radio, you can visualize the arm and
cable to see if connected."
If you still don't have heat let me know and I can xerox a couple of pages from the manual that show how to deal with the cable for the temperature door.

No heat from heater in front, rear heat works fine, engine is hot


I recently had a simular problem...try to follow the heater hoses that come from the engine and go into the firewall to the heater core... one of the 2 hoses connects to a plastic valve right before the firewall. This valve shuts off the flow of hot coolant into the heater core when heat is not needed.. Look carefully at this plastic valve, there is a wire pull cable with a small loop at the end that connects to a lever on the valve. Have a helper work the heat controls and make sure the cable pulls on the lever at the firewall valve...I've seen some cables disconnected. Hope this helps with your diagnosis.

Heat/cool control does not travel full range,how can it be freed?

Takes a bit of crawling and looking upside down, but can be done. Cable leaves controller and curves along some sort of pathway to the heater blend/door probably on top of the HVAC box. SHould end up on passenger side, I think. You should find this cable's end with a loop on it attached to a lever that works the hot/cold door. Check if door moves freely with cable unhooked from door end. If so, move controller and feel looped end with your fingers. Still stiff? Proceed:

Cable can be fed out of dash and lubricated, but I've seen many that were just ready to be replaced. They are cheap to special order, and once you get it out, you'll know if it was a rough pathway, or a bad cable, or a sticky door. Sometimes the button that secures the far end to the box and holds the cable housing stationary can get loose and pop partially out of its slot, too. Hope that helps, TaterTodd
