I just bought this 98 Expedition and the heater is blowing cold, just replaced thermostat, and I am trying to figure it out.. Could it be the heater control valve?

    There is no "heater control valve" on an Expedition.

    Instead, after you verify there is hot coolant going into and coming out of the heater core, look inside the vehicle. You may have a temperature blend door actuator failing. This operates the door between heat and air conditioning and could be inoperative.

    Good luck.

    If you have the 4.6l engine there is not a heater control valve but if you have the 5.4l engine there is a heater control valve but location is very hard to find, I have searched everywhere!!!

    The temperature blend door actuator is behind the dash.

    A "heater control valve" is a valve that works in lieu of a electric blend door actuator on some cars. The Expedition does not have one. Neither the 4.6L or the 5.4L.
