Thanks sooo much and will do? Now I鈥檓 having issues with my heater not getting hot the actuator under the gas pedal is going up and down and the heater control valve screw is tight and it is moving so the only thing I think To do is to flush the heater core. Do you or anyone else have any other suggestions?

another victim of stop leak products. it has probably caused more harm than good. you might need a complete heater core replacement. luckily I think they are cheap.

anytime stop leak products are used in the cooling system you want to flush all that stuff out before you replace whatever it was that was leaking.

Man I definitely hope not I flushed the heater core out and it鈥檚 still not working absolutely no air is coming out of the vents in front center or sides in front
Is that a sign of the blower went out?
I do hear noise and it blows in the rear just fine

oh you say no air is coming out, completely different issue. you have fuses and relays to check now at a minimum.
also maybe some debris is clogged in the area because someone never replace the filter?

It鈥檚 been 30,000 miles giver take since they鈥檝e been changed so much I definitely need new filters both are pretty bad and the cabin air filter area wasn鈥檛 too bad but there was a little debris/pine needles in there So I鈥檓 going to change the filters and blower motor out and see if that helps

I see a lot of people who find the increased sludge on the PCV head of the J series and think their engine has a problem and needs to be flushed. This isn't the case.
So they should replace the PCV valve. Kind of a maintenance item.

Chad told me they never had the TB/WP replaced, so it had 260K+ on the originals when I got it.
Oh, Chad.

Finally get to see what that ugly VCM system looks like naked. (n)


Really nice (and patient) Eric's teaching his grandson to wrench, literally. (y)

If you are getting sludge you really need to replace the PCV valve, switch to a good synthetic oil, change oil every 6 months regardless of miles, and address seal leaks. That way it doesn't keep coming back.
Yeah, I was gonna say. :)

If it's really bad, yes. But just because the PCV head is a bti darker doesn't mean it's an issue.

At least the VCM-1 system. VCM-2 has a video of its own:

Front or rear?
Make sure you connected the wire harness tight.
Could bench test the blower motor, unless you are saying you put a good blower motor in, then you could check for voltage at the wire. I would check both ground and positive together, and if you get no signal, check them individually, by grounding one lead to chassis, and the other to the positive terminal. Check the ground wire by changing the setting to continuity so that it beeps when you touch the leads, and check both ground and positive. Should hear a beep with ground, and should not hear a beep with positive.

The front one. Yes the one I installed is a brand new one
Is it possible to test voltage with one of these tools
