Help with Moen Valve

I have an older moen valve that is only flowing hot water. I just replaced a water softener that had an unknown leak and there was green gook in the pipes. Cut out some and poured some bleach to clean out and of course stuff was flowing into the house. Had to clean the faucet aerators.
I guessing something bigger blocked the cold water. I remove the valve and still only hot water flows so I know it isn't the valve.
Does anyone know how I can possible get this to flow again?

I would turn off the water to that valve, relieve pressure, then remove the cartridge(s) to flush out or replace.

It looks like a single stem cartridge to me but search your model. You remove the spacer(s), then pull up on that thin upside down brass horseshoe retainer to remove, then you can pull out that center cartridge.

Thanks, I used the wrong language. I have removed the cartridge and still no flow from the cold water side. I was not sure I could take out the side parts. Which I now know are called stop check valves. I hope to remove the cold side tomorrow and see if I can clear what is blocking it.
