Hello. My name is ***** ***** I am happy to assist you today. Give me just a moment to review your post, and I'll be right back with the help you need.

Once you have it warmed up, check both hoses and let me know the results and we can work from there.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
both hoses are very warm
Expert:  Ron replied 8 months ago.

In most cases if both hose are getting nice and hot that usually means you have a problem with the blend door actuator . Are you able to do some testing if I send you the steps?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I can sure try. Please send them
