1995 heater doesn't work....common?

the A/C blows colder and harder than most new cars i've been in, but the heater doesn't work. basically, with the temp **** on hot or cold, it's all one temperature. wondering if this is a common occurance and what i might be able to look into as being the problem.

mostlikely a blend door issue. The actual door can brake from the actuator and that is a big job requiring the dash to be removed along with other various parts.
Then there is the Blend Door Motor / actuator. There are sensors and gears in it that can fry some times. Its located behind the glove box on top of a "ledgey" section of the black "air controll" assembly. it usualy is white and looks like a small 4inch by 3 inch module. its held in by >8mm bolts that are dificult to get at. So be patient with the wrench. A socket might not be able to reach.
And RARELY but it does happen in the hoses: the bypass Valve. Witch is actuated by vacume.
But my guess is the blend door.

And check your coolant too.

If it is the blend door.


Before all that work I would make sure the hoses leading to the heater core get hot. A simple touch test after the bypass valve will do.

Also verify coolant level before you warm up the truck.
