Question about 1997 Dodge Dakota
Im asking now because its getting on to cold season, i live in the northeast, so cold is COLD here. Last winter i toughed it out but the heat in my truck only comes out warm, it doesnt really get hot and it takes a long time defrost the windshield.
If replacing the thermostat dosen't work ,It is most likley the heater core.Don't worry it's not as bad as you think.You will need to flush it out.Disconnect the hoses from the firewall, in the engine compartment.You will find them to the left of the brake booster.A 5/8" garden hose will fit with the end cut off.You may want to place a length of hose on the opposite tube as well.Turn on the water and flush it for a few minutes.Reverse the water into the other hose to back flush.Reconnect the hoses and you should have heat.

Most likely u need to replace the engine thermostat, make sure to use long life coolant to replace what is lost when you change the thermostat.
