Yes it is - it sounds like the thermostat is stuck closed, which is preventing the coolant from circulating. Sooner or later it's going to be an issue, and probably at an inopportune time. Change the thermostat out and get rid of a potential problem before it becomes one.

2002 dodge ram no heat


You probably have a plugged heater core. If one hose is hot, and other one is quite a bit cooler or cooler, then you have a problem with flow through heater core. Try flushing it. I hope that will help.

Good Luck!

I got a 97 ram both heater hoses are cold when truck is hot


You probably have a restricted heater core. Buy a can of radiator flush and follow the directions on the can. If this doesn't work, then take both heater hoses loose at the engine an run water thru the heater hose with a garden hose. Hopefully this will clear the restriction. Hope this helps :)

2000 Dodge Ram Heat not hot, only luke warm @ idle only 105 deg. @ 1500 rpm. So far this is what i've done and tried: Changed Thermostat with 192 deg oem repl. Changed radiator cap unhooked both heater...


did you use pure antifreeze if so remove it all and add a 50/50 mixture because antifreeze will not heat up good if its pure. needs water to allow good heat.

2002 dodge 1500 Changed radiator, thermostat, and hoses. No heat


Why was radiator replaced?Did it have heat before ? If it was plugged, the heater core may also be plugged. Try flushing it with a water hose in both directions. I dont know why the botton radiator hose would be cold, the radiator should be a uniform temp and the air coming through the radiator should be HOT, when the engine is at operating temp. What condition was the old coolant? if it was rusty, the water pump may have lower flow than normal.
