It's not the valve as far as I can tell. I disassembled the valve just to have a look at how it was put together and it appears to be in good condition. Just for fun I bypassed the valve with a piece of heater hose just to see if the heater would work. After reaching operating temp, it will givea puff of warm air that gradually cools to ambient temp...same as when the valve is hooked into the cooling loop. I am guessing now that the heater core is mostly blocked...any "best way" to clean one in while still in the car?

his limitations...
