Tip & How-To about Dodge Dakota
For some reason the Dodge Dakota heater core tends to plug up and will stop heating the car. the replacement job is big as a/c lines have to be removed etc. this happened to my daughters 1997 V6 Dakota and she was told she needed a new heater core for $700 when in Colorado last year. she had the system flushed and the antifreeze changed which helped a little. i checked it out and backflushed the heatercore itself going the opposite direction of normal flow and a small plug of junk came out and the problem is fixed. consider this is you or someone has the same problem. it is because there is a 90 degree angle in the inlet and outlet lines of the heater core just behind the firewall. good luck. hope you can save some money and stay warm with this tip.
