Hi, my name is***** for the long wait on this question. If your heater is blowing intermittent heat I would check for a plugged heater core, a faulty heater control valve or a faulty engine thermostat. If you disconnect the power to the heater valve it should spring open and give you full heating. The valve should be removed and inspected to be sure that it opens and closes electrically. If the heater valve is open and you get poor heating I would check for a plugged heater core or a faulty engine thermostat.Let me know if you have any questions.Marty
