Your closing in. There is a motor that will open the heater core venting to allow it to blow into the car. Get a heater core install picture from your auto parts dealer or car dealer for specs of where and how it is driven.

Heater does not work


Seems like very little volume of water is reaching the heater core in the dashboard. Check the hoses that run from the cooling system into the firewall. One of these hoses might be bent or creased in a position that it impairs the normal flow of hot water into the dashboard.

I get air flow through both heater and def vents when switch is on floor or def.Dash vents work fine.


There is a stepper motor in behind the dash that controls where the air is distributed to.They are hard to get to,expensive to replace and almost impossible to repair so you might want to just live with it.

Sounds like the flap valve in your vent system that allows air to go to the defrosters is either jammed or broken. Unfortunately you will have to take the vent system apart to look.

Front air blows hot air while back air is cold. Can turn it off and on and it will work for a while.


I have the same problem, when running the air conditioning the front vents will blow hot air. I have not removed the dashboard yet, but I think that the air damper is stuck in the open position. It seemed like a heater core valve problem, but I am pretty sure it is a damper under the dashboard. Now however, I am finally getting some cool air out of the airconditioning vents, but when winter comes, I am afraid I will struggle getting heat again.

Cool air comes out of the back unit vents and hot in the front


under the dash on the bottom of the heater box there is a little selector motor most likely that motor has gone bad

Sounds like the flaps on the heater box are not moving. you will need to check the cables to see if they have come off or if they are seized.
The heat problem could be a blockage in the heater matrix. Try flushing the matrix out with a hose from the engine compartment side.
Note: you will need to bleed the system of air after doing this.
