Question about 2001 Dodge Durango

3 Answers

RE: AC does not blow cold when stopped at red light/stop sign, etc.

I have a 2001 Durango R/T and at one point I had to replace a part for the AC to make it blow on more than just the high setting. Although my AC now blows low, medium, and high, it stops blowing "COLD" air when sitting at a red light. As long as we are moving, it blows nice cold air at all levels - what could be causing this and how can I fix it myself. I'm a chick, so please speak in lamens terms ;) Even though I am a female, I am very capable of fixing **** no matter how difficult as long as I can understand. I never seem to amaze my husband who won't take his "***" out there and do it!!

Please, if possible, email the response to

Thanks to anyone who can help me!

    Oh wow, I haven't even looked. I shall do so today, though, and get back to you. Thanks so very much for your response! I'll come back later today and let ya know what my rpm is at idle.

    My son said the RPM is at 500. I will double check this tomorrow, but he "could" be right ;) Thanks again! What's it supposed to be at anyway? Is it 750?

    My 01 doe sthe same but now it is looseing cold air in the front but back works fine.

  • bilbx4inga Sep 23, 2008

    Same problem as listed. AC works fine at speed, when you stop, it will blow warm air and depending on how long you sit and how hot it is outside, the air will go from warm to HOT.Begin moving again and air cools down.

How many rpm should a automatic 2001 dodge durango shift gears at.

There is no set shift point on any vehicle

If you hold the gas down longer or further
the shifts come later

Only the torque converter clutch lock-up
comes on at about 42 MPH, under even throttle
in high gear
