I think this valve is the problem

SKU: GVX55 100

MPN: GVX05001

Tempstar Model: PGF030K080E

Part No: 1170430

Furnace installed mid to late 2003.

My gas furnace was blowing cold air. So when I investigated,

everything else was working fine; except no flame and no gas.

The inducer fan came on. The blower came on. But the gas

didn't come one. The pilot device glowed. I used the handle of a screwdriver to softly tap a few times on the

gas valve and all of a sudden the gas came on. It ran a

little bit then shut off. I tapped it a few more times and

it came on and stayed on this time until we shut it off.

So to me it seems I need a new gas valve.

I suppose these things can't just be taken apart and cleaned

or serviced in anyway. ~$230.00 for a new one online.

I have a call into the HVAC guy to see what he says.

I am wondering what do y'all think about it.
