Which vent is getting heat, driver side or passenger side?

This is caused by the heater core, the following test should be done.

There is only one blend door on this vehicle. Try flushing the heater core with a garden hose. Be sure to flush both ways.

If no help, blow out the heater core and put in radiator cleaner. Let it soak overnight and then flush it out again.

If operation is still not correct, replace the heater core.
