heater core plugged under dash

Answer If flushing the heater core doesn't solve the problem, the next step is to check the operation of the blend door. This model has problems with the door breaking and failing to control air flow through the heater core, appearing like the core is bad. Check for pictures, diagnostic information, and a fix.
