    Someone probably disconnected the heater core and just bypassed it because it started leaking and they didn't want to pay someone $500 to change it.
    I'm a black ninja motherfucker!

    makes sense. is that the usual price for a heater core? would that have anything to do with the dash not blowing?
    what about the other things?


    btw, thanks for the help everyone. :D

    the actualy core isnt expensive, but is a shitload of labore to get it swapped out.

    yeah , the core went on my first gen , when i had it. i seen the tutorial for it and that truly looks like a PITA.


    the leak started leaking again. so the rubberized undercoat is a no-go. i peeled that crap off and put some metal/aluminum silicone in there. so hopefully thatll stop and i can get my wires ran and some bass in there.

    heater core lines under the hood disconnected could be the reason for no blow. i had the same problem with heat not blowing, if you look on the drivers side theres a vac. resivoir that looks like a ball,theres dif versions but mine is a single line to a T then hte one arm goes to the back of the intake for vac and the other goes to another smaller dia. T below it that then runs into the dash to open and close the vents. check those lines for dryrot and hook the others back upto hte firewall and see how she works...assuming your heater core isnt toast.

    *edit*
    check pads and rotors and drums and see condition of them, if they check out, bleed em and go from there. if that dosent work post up and im sure ppl on here can help you out

    in the ABS controllerthat you were asking about those are bleeders for the controller to purge the air out of the system. if i were you, if the ABS is functioning correctly i would leave it alone.

    thats the abs controller in the 3rd pic? so i have no abs?

    i just got back from a ride and did circles in a parking lot , when i turn all the way there is a loud click from the front wheels then the truck seems to bounce some.

    im starting to get annoyed.
    :(

    you have ABS, those fittings are bleeder screws to service the ABS system they are perfectly fine. the click noise in the front end could be a number of things, i really couldnt tell you because its a "i'd have to be there" thing

    ah i see.

    what should i look for so i could figure out what it could be?
    its only when i have the wheel all the way to one side and start to accelerate. it clicks/pops a couple times then feels like the front end is bouncing. i could take a video when im out next lol.
    im really trying to avoid shops till i can find out exactly what it is, but all my mechanic friends are missing. so im here.

    you could be shaving the wieghts off your rims, i had that issue myself, take the wheel off and look for abraisions or anything that could be obstructing the wheel.
