How to Diagnose a Bad or Failing Connector Hose Heater Control Valve?

Connector Hose Heater Control Valve

The connector hose heater control valve is the valve that allows hot coolant from the engine to flow into the heater core. The heater core is mounted inside the vehicle, positioned near the blower motor and provides the warmth for hot air to be blown through the vents when the heater is activated. When the heater hose control valve or any of its hoses or connectors fail, it can cause problems for the rest of the cooling system and vehicle. Usually a problem with the heater control valve or any of its associated components will produce a few symptoms that can alert the driver of a potential problem that should be serviced.

No warm air

One of the first symptoms of a problem with a heater hose control valve or any of its associated components is an inoperable heater. If the heater control valve fails or gets stuck, it will not be able to allow hot coolant into the heater core so that the heater can operate. If the heater does not have hot coolant the AC system will not be able to blow hot air, and the front defroster may not work.

Leaking coolant

Another symptom of a problem with the heater control valve or it’s hoses or connectors is a coolant leak. If the housing cracks or breaks due to old age or corrosion coolant will leak out. Old age and corrosion can also cause the heater hoses and clamps to leak as well. A coolant leak at the heater control valve is not only a problem in that it will disable the heater, but it will also compromise the cooling system which can cause the engine to overheat. Coolant leaks can appear as small leaks, spouts of steam, or in more serious cases, large puddles.

The heater control valve and its associated parts are simple components, however, they are very important to the proper functionality of the heater, and any problems with it can both disable the heater as well as cause other problems for the vehicle. If you suspect that your heater control valve or any of its associated components is having an issue, have the vehicle inspected by a professional technician. They will be able to determine if the car needs a heater control valve replacement, or if a different repair is needed.

Chris is an excellent, honest guy. He tried so hard to save my car but unfortunately he's a goner. Chris guided me through both of my appointments (initial inspection and repair) and informed me about every test he was performing, what was wrong with certain parts, etc. Unfortunately my car ended up having worse problems than both of us had anticipated, so I decided it was best to stop putting more money into it and try to find a newer auto. I have recommended this service to friends and family based upon Chris' performance and helpful attitude. He also arrived early for BOTH appointments and called to check in with me prior. Amazing guy.
