Don't shoot the messenger - but from my experience with this the most likely problem is what is called a "blown head gasket". This occurs when a motor has overheated and the head gasket that separates the upper and lower engine compartments is damaged. This causes the blow back into the expansion tank as you have described it. There are a couple ways to check if this is truly what has happened. When the motor is cool look into the fluid in the expansion tank and see if there is any oil floating on top of the radiator fluid. It does not have to be alot just a little. This is a sure sign. The blow back into the tank is also a pretty sure indicator too, however. The most sure test is a pressure test that is done on your radiator. Once pressure is pumped into the sealed radiator there should be no pressure loss. If it goes down even a little then the mechanic knows that the gasket is damaged. Don't freak out though because if you shop around you can have you head gasket replaced pretty inexpensively. You should be good to go for a long time because Concord's are known for having really good motors. Note: to prevent this from ever happening in any car you own - if the car starts to heat up stop immediately and get it serviced. This will prevent a "blown" gasket from happening in the first place. Also if you're going to keep this car and it's getting up in the miles have the timing belt replaced. You should be good to go!!! Good Luck!!!

What do i do to get my 2002 Chrysler Concorde to blow heat?


Check the temp of the two hoses going to the heater core, one should be hotter then the other, if they are both the same of very little difference you have no flow through the core, if there is a heat control valve in the supply or return line it could be bad, or has a vacuum leak so its not actuating if not the core is probably plugged, or could be leaking, but usually you will smell the fluid and/or see a wet spot on the floor.

In 2005 chevy impala the heater only gets warm sometimes. Other times it blows cold air. I put fresh antifreeze in. And there is no water on the floor of the car


The adding adding coolant means you have a leak somewhere, and low coolant level will cause this. How often do you check the fluid levels? Check for leaking hoses, weak radiator or expansion tank cap, leak at the water pump, and leaks around the radiator.

Concorde overheating


take it to a mechanic and have him check the pressure in the coolant system-if its over 17.5 psi -your headgasket is leaking combustion gases into the coolant system and blowing the coolant out the overflow-you'll need to replace the head gaskets-Denny

Heater on 1995 Chrysler Concorde stopped heating. Replaced water pump and thermostat. Blows semi warm air out of one dash vent and pure cold out of other dash vent. Does anyone know codes to reset?


there are no reset codes, did you bleed the air out of the cooling system? if not do this procedure, if that doeasn't fix it u have a failed air temperasture control blend door motor actuator.
The generic method of bleeding air from the cooling system is to use a floor jack and raise the front of the car as high as poss, then fill the coolant recovery tank full and run the engine until it just starts to overheat, high end of normal zone on gauge, then shut the engine down and run cold water over the radiator core, this will self bleed the system and the coolant will be pulled from the recovery tank, repeat as necessary, never let the recovery tank run dry or more air will be pulled into the cooling systeml ,

1994 chrysler concorde radiator overflow tank hoses leaking


It sound like there may be a small leak in the cooling system. You can check this by pressurizing the cooling system. You can buy a pressure checker for about 100 dollars. It will usually show up leaks that are small because you can pressurize the system cold and it won't evaporate.

Temperature gauge is up and down


Sounds like youve noyiced the first sign of a failing thermostat.Its now taking more heat to open the thermostat or its jamming on the slide when it opens and closes.Good luck with it and pay special attention to your temp gauge until its replaced.
