Question about 1997 Dodge Intrepid

1 Answer

Heater problems I have a 96 intrepid.It has been getting really hot when I drive in the city.The heater is blowing out cold air.It doesn't matter if the temp. gage is on cold or at 3 quarters of the way up.I took the thermostat out and it is still getting hot and not blowing out hot air, it isn't even warm.I am not leaking antifreeze out of the water pump or any hoses and I have antifreeze in the overflow.Sometimes when I am on the highway I will get hot air and the temp gage will go down.Do you know what this could be?

Did you bleed the air oout of the cooling system - Their is a bleeding next to the therostat housing.


1 - When the vehicle is cold remove the rad(tank) cap and top up the level if needed

2 - start the vehicle with the rad cap off and leave the car run until you can see that the therostat has openned(look in tank/rad) to see fuild flow then open the bleeder slowly to let any air out of the cooling system. Once you have coolant flowing out of the bleeder close the bleeder and install the rad/tank cap.

NOTE - Be careful with the engine running and hot Coolant.

You make need to bleeding system 2-3 time to get all the all out. Once all the air is out of the system you problem should be solved. If air returns to the coolant system have the system checked for possible head gasket leaking air into the coolant system

1997 E350 Eldorado bus passenger heater blowing cold air


There is a separate heater core, like a small radiator, which needs hot water running through it, so when the air blows over it, the air gets hot. It sounds like the diverter valve which sends the hot water to this heater core is not working. It could be a problem with the valve itself, or the relay or switch that controls it, or the vacuum line or device that opens the valve when the switch or relay tells it to open.

Heater doesn't get hot on 96 chevy truck. Blows good, just cold. Replaced thermostat, flushed radiator. Any ideas?


Air Temperature Control Blend Door Failure No Heat or no AC (dependes on where door sticks)

In all modern cars there is a tiny DC electric motor driven gear drive that moves a plastic door that blends heated and cooled air from the AC and the heater core, this is called (interestedly enough) the air temperature control blend door actuator. The motor that moves this door fails because the door starts sticking from warping, most common complaint is no heat but it can be no AC as well. To replace these parts (blend door and blend door actuator) you must remove the entire dash from the car. Always have this problem confirmed by a dealer or qualified repair shop as it is a very expensive repair.

Other causes of no heat in the cabin are engine thermostats that are stuck open (engine runs cold) or air bubbles in the cooling system.

THE BLEND DOOR THAT CONTROLS HOT TO COLD SWITCHING IS STICKING. THE CONTORL HEAD IS ELECTRIC AND MAY BE CAUSING THE PROBLEM.

Heater doesn't blow hot air


First check the coolant level in the radiator. Check your heater core hoses on the firewall underneath the hood. Let the car come up to temp. and feel the two hoses. If only one of them is getting hot you may have bad heater core or a bad heater control valve.
