Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you with your question.

Expert:  Dan replied 8 months ago.

Your heater core could be clogged. I would try back flushing the heater core to see if you get some heat out of the vents. Make sure that both lines going into the heater core are hot and the same temperature.
