heater not working-lost???

hi guys

just a little lost regarding the operation (or not) of my heater on my eb.
can't get the bloody thing to work.

i've checked the heater valve- works ok?

there seem to be no vacuum leaks evident which would stop valves and flow doors working.

have sufficient coolant

heater hoses and core seem ok as the supply and return hoses both are hot when i select the heating.

everything seems to work when i select heating on the temp. selector, yet i get no hot air coming through the vents.

is it possible that my air vents before the coil, or even the coil itself is so blocked up with crap that it does not allow air to pass?

this is annoying the "you know what" out of me, especially early in the morning when i'm trying to see through my fogged up windows.

hi if this is a base model i would say it is the flap for the heater core. if it is a fairmont with climite contorl try testing it by having key on and a/c off press off and feet button at the same time and than releasing them the whole display should light up after a moment it may give a code E2 is the blend door motor which controls the flap for the heater dash out to fix this

If it's just a falcon with manual controls try removing your glovebox and see if the heat flap control cable is moving when you go from hot to cold.You could also check the recirc intake and make sure you havent sucked anything into it to restrict the air flow.

try removing heater hoses and run the garden hose with the water turned on and see if water comes out of the other heater outlet.
sometimes the heater core might be blocked, or the hoses to the heater might be blocked.
