Numerous things can cause this, plugged rad, faulty thermostat, low coolant, cooling fan not operating, bad cap,and if it's left too long or overheats too much, you could cause major damage like head gasket, head cracking. The later are major expenses, so don't let it get to that. Does it heat up on highway, or in stop & go more? Does turning your heater on, make it cool down a bit? Do you know if your rad has been flushed lately, and thermostat changed?

My heat in my 99 dodge intrepid is blowing cold air. I got a radiator flush and the heating core is working. What is wrong with my heat.


could be the thermostat has gone bad. this would over-cool the engine and keep the coolant from getting hot enuf to warm the heater core.

My 97dodge intrepid is leaking oil and i want to know where is the oil pan?


Hi. You might need to Replace the oil pan gasket is the oil is leaking. Here's the procedure on how to Replace the oil pan gasket.

1. Jack up the front end of the car and slide a jack stand under the vehicle. Make sure the jack stand is securely in place, and then put blocks in front of the rear wheels to keep them from rolling.

2. Slide under the car and put a drain pan under the drain plug of the oil pan. Loosen the drain plug with a socket wrench and allow all of the old oil to drain into the pan. Remove the old oil filter.

3. Disconnect the negative battery cable and remove the dipstick and its housing. Remove the collar on the rear of the oil pan. If the vehicle is equipped with engine oil cooler lines that lead to the oil pan, remove them as well, along with transmission oil cooler clips.

4. Remove the bolts holding the oil pan, and carefully remove the oil pan. Remove the old gasket. Scrape it with a putty knife if necessary, but be very careful not to scratch the surface.

5. Wipe out the oil pan with a clean cloth or paper towel, and wipe the joining surface of the oil pan with cleaning fluid or solvent. Apply a thin bead of automotive sealer and install the new gasket.

6. Replace the oil pan, tightening the bolts securely. Replace the transmission oil cooler clips, engine oil cooler lines, oil pan collar, dipstick housing and dipstick, and reconnect the negative battery cable. Install a new oil filter.

7. Take the car off the jack stand and fill the engine with the appropriate amount of SAE 10W-30 or SAE 5W-30.

All the best!

I have a 1996 dodge intrepid that keeps over heating. I've changed the thermostat and now it over heats sometimes. The auto store told me I had to bleed the thermostat but didn't tell me how to do it. How...


If the thermostat is working, and there is no visible coolant leak or water/coolant in engine oil dipstick, then it could be the electric fan, try running your car and when it starts to overheat check to see if the fan is working. Good Luck.

No heat in car. Replaced climate control andstill does not work


Sounds like heater core is clogged. Try to flush radiater, keeping heat on high, (set it to hottest heat setting) Buy the good stuff, as for help in selecting, you don't want to have to do it again. Follow instructions to the letter! Only do it when motor is COLD. DO NOT OPEN RADIATOR CAP WHILE HOT!!!
