You heater core may not be getting coolant in. Sometimes these valves get stuck or vacuum line falls off or is damaged ..just one possibility ..see how it's in line on heater hose? Will go full screen Try opening it by hand and see what happens ..yours may not look identical but will be similar, this is 2002 Explorer
