1994 Dodge Ram B250 318 I can't figure out why the driver's side doesn't have heat. The heat on the passenger side is hot!!

Is there a vent for the floor that I don't know about on the driver's side?

Is there a way to connect a hose from the passenger side vents to the driver's side floor?

I am freezing and need your help ASAP!!

Thanks!!

The duct work under the dash should blow heat to both sides. It's possible a previous owner blocked off the drivers side (as some do) because long drives tend to burn the right foot even though the rest of the van is still cold. You're just going to have to get under there and take a look.

So am I looking under the van or under the dash? Do I remove the engine cover for access?

Thanks!!

Look under the dash for the black ducts that blow the air downward. You don't have to remove the engine cover, but doing so gives you a much better view.
