Heater slow in warming then blows cold for a while then warm air steadily. Gauge starting to fluctuate.


I have to ask, when was the last time you had the cooling system flushed and all new coolant put in? This sounds like a stuck T-stat, but it could also have something to do with the blend door in the heater controls, I'd flush the system and replace the T-stat first though, it's cheaper.

Heater slow in warming and blows cold air after warm air. Gauge has started fluctuating.


Check for low coolant level. If coolant level ok, possible headgasket failure and further diagnostics will be required to confirm a headgasket failure

Heatdoesn't work, A/C blows out warm air and defrosts blow out cold air


Right think the problem is the heater core is blocked with corrosion ,now remove the bottom hose from the rad and the heater hoses then flush every which way you can including through the heater core reversing direction then ,refit all the hoses fill with water only and see if heater works if so the remove the bottom hose again and drain ,then add a minium of 3 litres of antifreeze ,its a anti corrosion agent as well as antifreeze and without it the internal of the engine will corrode and the slurry will block the heater first then the radiator ,

I have no heat in my 2002 Dodge Stratus. I have changed the thermostat and flushed the heater core? What else could this be?


See if your library has a Stratus shop manual and check the heating system chapter. You didn't say if the engine was reaching operating temperature or not. If the engine is warm but you are not, I would say the problem is in the heat exchanger somewhere. If your engine is cold, you can't really expect the heater to get warm, now can you. Then you have a different problem to chase.

Lack of water on your floor means your heater core is not leaking. It could still be plugged somewhere. The fact that you get some heat initially, but it turns cold when you turn the fan on, sounds like a lack of adequate warm water to the heater core to me. If the engine is warm, it could be a circulation problem of some sort.

Temperature gauge is fluctuating while driving.


I'm thinking the coolnat level is low, and this might be caused by a bad head gasket - At least $800 to fix - sorry.

Won't go in gear when it's cold.


A good place to start is fluid & filter change if not done recently, and make sure they use Mopar ATF4. Insist on it.
