I've got a 1997 Suburban and would love a complete list of items to troubleshoot a heater that doesn't work.
What I've checked/done so far:
- blower motor is OK
- can switch from defrost/feet/face
- there's coolant in the system - had to replace some hose, and there was a broken 45 degree heater hose connector that I replaced. There's still a small coolant leak past that - probably on the hose that goes to the rear heater (I can't seem to find a replacement online for that)
- both front/rear blows cold
- the vacuum hose from the heater valve is pulling a vacuum, but not sure how to test the valve itself
How can I check the heater valve, and what else should I check to rule in/out problems with the heating system?
