      My heater blows, but doesn't get warm. It's not leaking water or overheating. What could it be?

      Could be the heater control valve not letting hot coolant into heater core...easy to see under hood in heater hose...or thermostat could be bad not letting engine heat up..what does the temp gauge say?

      All cheap to replace..go to a local NAPA store..they have the control valve in Balkamp.

      Welcome to this forum! I've moved your thread into the A/C & heater section. Feel both heater core hoses to see if both of them are getting hot. If both are hot, then check the operation of the blend door.
