Heat wont blow through heater or defroster vents

Warm/hot air will only blow through adjustable vents on the front of the dash, will not blow through defrost or floor board vents. However, cold air (from air conditioner) will blow through all vents - including upper dash defrost vent.
Thank you i can not get hot air flow out of my defrost vents. it blows out all the others.

The camshaft position sensor (also known as the distributor pickup) is inside the distributor which is driven by the camshaft gear and directly below the water pump, the water pump must be removed to access the distributor to change the sensor. Here is a picture of the camshaft position sensor.

How to fix p1345 obd code on 97 chevy 1500 5.7 Lt.

How to fix p1345 obd code on 97 chevy 1500 5.7 Lt.

P1345 is "Crankshaft position sensor / Camshaft position sensor correlation"

Code P1345 determines if the distributor is installed incorrectly, or if a mechanical malfunction is present in the engine. The light will trigger when the engine is running and the camshaft sensor reference pulse is not detected at a correct relative position with the crankshaft pulse. Most likely causes for this Chevy check engine light code include a faulty crankshaft position sensor, a wiring concern or an improperly installed distributor. A quick check on the crankshaft sensor is to monitor the RPM value with a scan tool while revving up the engine. If the reading is close to twice the expected RPM, then the sensor is likely faulty. There are other less likely concerns possible, such as base engine or computer related issues, but these involve more in depth testing. I hope this information is useful.
