Where is the heater control valve located

My car has 158000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

A: The heater control valve is located in the ...

The heater control valve is located in the engine compartment, on the firewall. From the illustration, it appears to be either in the middle of the firewall, towards the top, or on the passenger side. There will be a couple of hoses running to it, and a mechanical arm with a cable running to it.
