You may have a "Blend" door issue. Check the vacuum hose that goes into the firewall. Check blendor actuator for blown diaphram. Vacuum source comes from somewhere on the intake manifold.

Hey Greg...I looked in Alldata for a heater valve..Does not list one. I think it uses doors ot flaps, the schematic shows vacuum motors/actuators
