I was hoping for a little help with a heater issue. My heater stopped working on my ram. The fan works but there is no heat being produced. Can anyone provide some insight into what it could possibly be? Thanks everyone.

Plugged heater core. My heat is weak, I'm thinking of filling the core with C.L.R. and see if it gets better.

Back flush the heater core and look for it to improve. You'll need to blow air into the driverside opening and have the passenger side pointed into a bucket or jug or something away from your face. No improvement then figure out if the blend door is working. Turn off everything, fan engine radio etc. Go hot cold hot cold hot cold a bunch of times giving it a second or 2 at each extreme. Should be able to hear the blend doors move, just barely hear it.
