Heat out ?

Going for a wheeling /camping trip tomorrow and the heat decided to stop working . What should I trouble check. It's a 98 4.0. Blows air , just not heat . AC is currently bypassed but that shouldn't matter , should it ?

pull both lines off going into the heater core, but not at the firewall, do it on the engine side and use a hose to back flush the heater core. is your temp gauge acting normal?

yea try back flushing it like i mentioned just pop the hoses off where it connects to the engine and run a water hose through each one you will be surprised all the junk and comes out when the pressure goes the opposite way, it worked great on my xj when i first got it and its been hot ever since.

Are both hoses hot? If so, I bet that you have a blend door that isn't switching to hot. Turn the blower on and change the temp setting from hot to cold. Do you hear a change in air flow?

if the blend door isn't switching, do I have to replace the heater core or is there another option?

You can fix/change the blend door actuator and/or the linkage without changing the heater core...
