Sounds as if the heater control valve may be stuck closed. There is a rod which goes from the dash control to the valve, and it may have come off. take off the driver side speaker cover, take the speaker out, and you should be able to find the valvle itself--it is right inside the wall where the eater hoses connect. It the rod has come loose, the expedient thing to do is just turn the valve by hand about 180 degrees clockwise. That should give you heat until summer--when you can worry about putting the control rod back in place. Dick in Falls Church
