Re: No Heat...Fixed
Just wanted to say thanks for the post. Helped me fix the same issue.
Drove my truck to work this morning - heat was working fine. Drove home - no heat, brrrrr. Checked fuses, relays, and the front control panel connections (did some audio work a day before), everything seemed fine.
After doing some research, found this post that describes the valve. And sure enough after pulling the plastic shaft and moving the top gear back and forth a few times and reinserting the shaft things started to work again.
I'm just glad that valve was easy to access and didn't require pulling half the console apart or something like that.
My concern tho is that when I opened up the cover for this valve I had about a third or even half cup of coolant/refrigerant spill out. Is it normal for it to leak into the gear enclosure? Could it be contributing to the failure of this component?
