It's COLD (and my heater's dead)

But hey, it's Christmas and my happy ass is on vacation starting tomorrow! I'm going to sleep late every day, stop shaving, walk around the house in my underpants all day, and generally be as lazy as possible. This is my dress rehearsal for unemployment. I fully expect to get laid-off in the next few months when our jack-wad president finishes destroying what's let of the economy and my employer's ability to keep me on the payroll. The good news is that bloodsucker won't get any more taxes out of me to buy cell-phones for the rest of the leaches.

But I digress...

The heater on my NAS '97 D90 SW has started blowing cold air. REALLY cold air. I'd sure appreciate a few tips on what I should check first. Heater core? It blows and the cables work. When it comes to diagnosing heating/cooling problems, I'm as clueless as an Obama supporter.

Awe crap... does asking for free info make me look like a freeloading Liberal?

If the heater control setup is similar to the 94s (which I'm assuming it is) then there are two cables that go to the heater core...one controls the "flap door" which either lets air in to the cabin or not, the other controls the flow through the heater core. I'd check there first (under the hood) to see if the actual "cables" are doing their job (i.e moving position when you move them in the cabin).

Hans, a true republican asshat would take it outside and shoot it with an assault rifle fulled with incendiary bullets and hicap magazines.

+1 on the flap controller. Those clips that hold the cables in place break and fall off. My heater control cables are held in place with safety wire and cable ties.

Asking for free info & stuff is fine - it's when I do not have the option to say "no" without having a bullet put in my head is when the problems arise...

Just open the hood and move the lever the cable attaches to manually. Also make sure your coolant is full, if it is low the heater core will starve for coolant first and blow cold air.
