No heat in 2004 dodge 1500 v6 engine

The truck overheated about a week ago. I replaced the thermostate & everything was fine for a day then no heat. The top hose from the engine is hot but the lower hose from the radiator is no. How do I correct this problem

You probably are air locked. Refill your coolant at the rad cap and start the engine. Allow the engine to heat up and "burp". This will help clear the air from inside the engine. This may take several attemps. Remember to fill your overflo bottle to the proper level. If the issue persists, check to see if the t-stat is locted properly, it's easy to invert them on some modles.

No Reverse and the fluid is dirty and smells funny.


Sounds like you blew out your reverse belt/gear in the transmission. Probably going to need a transmission rebuild/replacement.

Possible, with rad cap off, let vehicle idle until coolant fan comes on then shut vehicle off for 30 minute cool down. Top up rad, install cap and drive and recheck heater operation and any overheating.

If your "check engine" light is turn on, I suggest scanned the PCM to know exactly what fault code is stored there. Additionally, could be some problem with the "temp sending unit".

it will be one of two things air is in the system or the thermostate is wrong or installe wrong. to get air out remove rad cap when cold turn heat on floor and run vehicle while watching fluid level in rad, sometimes you have to run at 1500 rpms for a while to get engine temp up but be careful when you let off throttle the water will come right at you so cap it off before you let off throttle
