lack of heat

so i was driving home last night and realized i had no heat. i had my auto climate control on manual at 32 deg and it was only pumping out luke warm air.. once in a while it would pump out really hot, then luke warm again.. it did this for a bit.. now it just seems luke warm...

i noticed last summer my A/C wasnt cold cold but had the gauges put on and shes toped off of refrigrant....

are these some how connected? ive been doing research... could this be the blend door??


thanks

i was just playing with my truck and noticed my A/C doesnt come on.. is it beacuse i have the auto climate control and its cold outside? or is this part of my problem now??

if i press the settings between defrost and floor and vent, the air movement does go to the proper place.. is it still the blend door?

I think the dampers that control which vents the air comes out are different from the blend damper.

From what I've seen, replacing the blend door is a hell-job.

I agree with b4000, replacing the blend-door looks pretty rough. Good luck
