Question about 1994 GMC Jimmy
The heat stove is a metal shield that covers one of your exhaust manifolds, usually the passenger side. It has a flexible pipe that runs to your air intake. When the engine is cold a valve in the intake opens and the engine pulls warm air from the manifold through the pipe.
Chances are the stove is missing from your truck, they tend to rust out at the mounting points and either fall off or get pulled off by someone who gets annoyed by the rattling they make. You can still run the pipe down to the manifold without the stove and it will do the job, just not as quick. The pipe can be got at an autoparts store but I think the stove is a dealer item. Ask to be sure. Hope this helps.
