    Under the hood on passenger side near firewall at the black ac/heater box. Heater hose on each end of the valve and small vacuum hose hooked to it as well. NAPA part # BK 6601232.
    3 heater hose ports, 1 vacuum port.
    Ok Mike, if it has no valve it has been removed and is not the problem with little heat. Possible heater core restriction try flushing core with air and water, check youtube. Come warm weather it may affect ac performance without the valve though.

    I checked autozone website and lists 2 possibilities. One 3 port and one in/out valve. Not sure from here should have one of 2 ?
