heater doesn't work

normally it hardly blows any air at all, sometimes it blows a little bit, and sometimes it blows at the setting you have it....and this is all when its on the highest setting. any idea what this could be or a way to fix it? its starting to get cold, and my hour drive to work each day is sucking. Ive noticed when I hit a bump it will often blow harder for a few minutes for some reason.

First I would check the vacuum line on the engine block, driverside rear corner. You should see a small vacuum line that should be connected to a barb on the engine block. I had to zip tire mine on since would keep sliping off.

2nd, If not that next the lines behind control panel and fuses in the glove box.

3rd would probably be blower resistor.

(There He Is!!--sorry man, I could not resist) If it switches from defrost to dash to feet then it is not a vaccuum problem. it sounds like a blower resistor or switch issue. My money is on the resistor. good luck!

Mine would only blow out the feet on the highest setting, when I looked at the vacuum line and saw it was disconnected from the barb, I hooked it back up and then it worked on all settings and even on low for the blower.
