NO AIR COMES OUT OF THE VENTS, BUT THE BLOWER MOTOR IS WORKING. WE HAVE REMOVED THE DASH TO CHECK THE DAMPERS AND THEY ARE OPENING IN THERE. ARE THERE DAMPERS ANYWHERE ELSE? ALL THE VACUUM LINES SEEM TO BE OKAY. NEED HELP ITS GETTING COLD HERE IN THE MIDWEST.
Do you

NO NOTHING, YOU CAN FEEL THE WARMTH, BUT IT WON'T EVEN MOVE THE SMOKE FROM A CIGARETTE.

I'd have to check the doors for directional flow. Did check for vacuum at the lines?

Yes have checked the vacuum lines & they are good. I was told about a filter that may be stopped up. I haven't found one. I'm getting ready to take the rest of the dash out so I can see in there better.

Maybe I misunderstood your post? With the engine running, you can feel the vacuum, on the line?

I don't know if an exploded view will help or not?

My husband & I would like to THANK YOU very, very much. We finally found the problem. It was the evaporator core, it was completely stopped up. They blowed it out, hooked it back up & now there is all kinds of air coming out of the heater. If it wasn't for your diagrams they would still be looking. I guess that's why it just gradually got worse over the past couple of years. And the reason my A/C wasn't working either. Again THANK YOU!
