Having problems with your 1988 Dodge Aries ?
The plastic valve is broken between the engine and the heater core. What is this part called? Is it a valve or just a junction point for the two hoses?
Some are junctions,but some are heater control valves,they cut the flow of hot coolant to the heater core so the ac can work better,and soo not to give any heat if not wanted,if it has a electric plug on it,or vacuum it is a valve,replace it.If it is just an junction,just go to the parts store and get any kind of hose connectors to join the hoses together
