HONDA ODYSSEY HEATER PROBLEM

2000 Honda Odyssey

I have a problem with the heater in front not blowing hot air. The rear works good but the front is Luke warm. I have checked the blend door and the motor, both seem to be working good, I've bled what I think is all the air out of the system when I flushed the radiator. If this helps, when I looked underneath where the blend door is, when the temp is turned up all the way the arm is not going all the way to the end of the track for the blend door. It looks like it is leaving it open just a little. Could this be the motor that controls opening and closing the door or the climate control panel?

Have you checked to see if both the heater hoses going to the heater core at the firewall are getting too hot to hold?

Sorry for not getting back sooner, but no. The hoses are warm but not too hot to touch. Both the front and rear are blowing warm but not hot. Could the heater core be so clogged that I need to flush it itself?

Could be but usually when the heater core is clogged one hose will be too hot to hold while the other hose is cool to warm.
