With the engine hot and running and the heater on high, feel both heater core hoses. They should be hot.

Let me know what you find.

Thanks for the reply. I actually found the problem this weekend. Both hoses were hot so I traced the problem to the blend door actuator. I took apart the actuator and cleaned the electodes. Works now, but I will need a new one soon. The electical tracks are worn out. Do you know if they sell a electrical conducting paint?

If both hoses were hot, that was the next thing I planned to have you check. As far repairing it, I don't know of any such product, but that doesn't mean they don't make it. Maybe a good parts store would know.

Let me know what you find out and thanks for using 2carpros. Com.


Where is the blend door actuator, and is it easy to inspect?
