Hot Hoses To The Heater Coar With No Heat Inside Car=CLOGED Heater Coar Most Times. On A Cool Car. NOT HOT Jently Remove Heater Coar Hoases BOTH.DO NOT TWIST HOSES TO REMOVE, This Will KILL Your HC. Use A Hose Removal Tool. With Hoses Gone..Look In Coar.Is It Cloged?? Try Flushing The Coar With A Garden Hose.
