Control makes clacking noise and will not open heater

Customer Question

control makes clacking noise and will not open heater control valve

Are you sure the noise is from the control valve and not the more common failure of the blend door actuator inside the dash? Can you manually open the control valve and get the heater core hot and get hot air?

When you open the heater control valve can you then get heat?

I hate that you spent money here, and left, what appears to be not pleased with me or my help. I am still here and available to help. We can pick up where we left off or start over.
