After reading through past heating problems I have determined that the MONOVALVE must be my lack of heat problem. What I donít know is its location. Can some one tell me where it is? Also where is the air-intake for the heating and cooling system on this car?

The problem is I have no heat at all. I have plenty of coolant. I do get some heat if I squeeze the water line between the intake manifold and the firewall. I have also looked at the water pump to see if there was a typical thermostat. I didnít see one. However, I also did not see where one would have been installed. My assumption is the car does not have one. Is this correct?

Thank you,

Under the hood, about 1 foot to the drivers side of the battery. Has 4 screws holding the solenoid to the body of the valve.

monovalve and mystery part

Thank you for the information. I found the monovalve and it has a tear in the large diaphragm.

Second thing I did notice is a broken part. Just above the monovalve is a bracket that holds a black device with a small button and a red light. On that same bracket I have a part that is broken. It has two wire attached with separate connectors. All that is left of the part is the two wires a spring up the center of four prongs. The housing and the rest of it are gone. It looks like it has been that way for a while. Any idea what this is so that I can get it replaced?

Thanks

David,

I believe it's center/pass side right up towards the firewall. I had this same problem last weekend. Blew air, but not hot. It would blow hot air *only* after it sat for a few minutes, then would blow outside temp air again.

Ted,

How did you solve your problem? I have a similar circumstance. My car will blow warm air after I turn the engine off and then back to cold when it is running.

David,

The part is called a "mono water valve".

A plunger that closes off the A/C from the heat (I think). The whole piece is set with 4 screws. If the plunger (aka valve) clicks as it did in my case, it's bad. A fairly common problem.

Hope this helps,

Ted

Don't they make a repair kit for the monovalve? I need to do this repair to my 560sl.

Rob,

I wouldn't doubt it, but...

The part in question (valve) was simply swapped with a good part. Took all of 10 minutes to do and the heat was back to normal.

I replaced the MONO valve for $40.00 and the heat works perfect. If any one would like details of how I did it. Please feel free to email me.

Thanks

David
