Thanks for that info, may I was to tired from working on my car that I couldn't think straight. I do want to say I am finally done with my car and so proud of myself, so I give thanks to all who gave me some helpful hints to go about repairing my heater core.

Well got the heater core in the other day and my heater was working fine till the next day it stopped working, no blower no heat, I checked the fuses, I just don't know why it stopped it was working it felt good to have heat when I have been sitting in a cold car working on it for awhile. where would I find the blower motor?

is the blower working or not? if not you need to measure if for voltage, if no power you need to trace it back till you see why its not getting power. just replacing things without trouble shooting just wastes time and money

Thank you. I will take the dash off again and check all wiring since I didn't put it all together, is the rod suppose to move when I turn the heat on or is the blower suppose to do that ? I hope its just a miss wiring,,,

im guessing the rod with the temp or position change, some cars though have vacuum lines and actuators for position change. mine has the auto setup, so not real familiar with the rods.
