No Heat? Blend Door Problems? easy fix last resort

After going all summer not needing heat, when it's time to use it, it's not their, I can hear it close when i stomp on the gas, & then their's heat, come to a stop, the blend door opens & cold air blows in.

After going to my local repair shop & finding that it's about $700-850 to fix it, Thats not going to happen. Next I go on line to read & see how to fix it, WOW, 10-12 hours if you DIY, plus metric tools, plus the parts....ect.

I came up with a max. 2 hour project, & that is if your really, really slow.

Here's the thing....This is the last resort to fixing it for free...

If people want a details & photo's, I will publish in a day or two.

Re: No Heat? Blend Door Problems? easy fix last resort

What year and model vehicle is it? Do you hear the electrically driven blend door actuator trying to move the door but nothing happens? You would hear this when you first turn on the key. If it only happens during acceleration it's more likely just a vacuum leak or a vacuum line came unplugged. Look under the hood at the hot water supply valve first. That's a common vacuum line disconnect.

@Hamfisted,
I already fixed it, the bottom of the blend door is broken, I'm going to give that "last option to people to fix it themselves".

Oh ok, that's easy. I new blend door is $15 at Rock Auto. Or a new blend door actuator is $30. Those are easy.
