97 TJ heater does not blow

Maybe not the whole truth...the heater will work, I can feel really hot air just abrely seeping out of the defrost vent for the windshield. However, I'm not getting any pressure.

If it were the heater core, I wouldn't have heat at all so I'm thinking that's still ok.

If the blower itself had crapped out, would I even be getting air at all?

Isn't the heater intake that grate on the hood in front of the windshield? What if that's all clogged up? How can I check that?

ok, so i know this is an OLD post and you probably already fixed it, but a) check under your cowl and look into the cabin air intake; you can see the fan itself. if it runs when u tell it to, your problem is blockage. if it is NOT moving, u also know your problem.
I am slowly, but surely fixing everything Jeep f'd up...
