Q: heater valve on 2000 Ford F-150

I have been told my heater valve is not working, causing my a/c to blow hot air. A friend bypassed the valve so I could use the a/c. Now I want to replace the part, but can't find the location of the valve. Could you pleas tell me where in the engine compartment it is?

There's no heater control valve. You get heat by a blend door. Your friend bypassed the heater core because your blend door actuator motor is bad or you blend door is broke. If you want more help from me email me at
its located inline on the heater hose but maybe your friend used a piece of pipe to connect the hose where the valve was, maybe buy the valve and ask your fried to reinstall it Hope this helps
