Heater core failure likely? Mechanic replaced valve which was bad and fluid flowed into the core, it heated up, but did not flow out other end. I had mechanic complete job but after I got the part back the core was not blocked or did not leak. So what was wrong??? Heater now works after new core was installed. I think the valve was the problem ONLY and not the valve and core. What do you think??

It could have been plugged and during the removal process the stuff inside came free so the core was cleared. Without seeing the part it is a bit hard to say what happened. But if coolant went in one side and wouldn't come out the other, it probably was restricted.
