2001 Town and Country limited heater issue

On our 2001 Town and Country the heater has begun to blow only cool air, and at the same time, I have noticed that the engine temp guage has started staying at "C" instead of mid-range as usual. I have no idea where to start but it seems electrical.

    Thanks for the reply...coolant is full

    Thanks for the replies. I took the housing off to check the thermostat, and it fell apart in 3 pieces. Replaced the thermostat, topped off the coolant and its working great!

    I had the same problem. Removed the thermostat housing and found the thermostat had broken on one side and blocked the opening. It wouldn't operate properly and wouldn't allow the coolant to heat up.

I think you should check your heater core. It is the little looking radiator next to the big one on the drivers side.

    If coolant is full your and your coolant is not ever getting hot, your thermostat could be stuck open, also you have a vacumn controlled heater valve in line with your heater core, it may not be opening to allow coolant to circulate inside the heater core.

2001 Town and Country start to blow hot air then turns cold. Engine thermostat is where it should be.

This sounds like a failing heater core. You may be able to flush your coolant system using a garden hose and compressed air from an air compressor( if available). Doing this may dislodge any deposits that have built up overtime. You may also want to replace your thermostat.

My wifes minivan, 2001 chrysler town and country does not blow very cold air. it's cool but not cold. I have replaced the dryer and recharged system to 2.69lbs. It holds vacuum and the guages are in...

Did you pull a vacuum on the system before charging? Disconnect the blend door actuator and turn it by hand. These aren't known for having stuck blend doors.

I'm not a mechanic, but that sounds like a heater core might be faulty. I'm not sure if that could be clogged and prevent the fluid from circulating for cooling or not. This is just an idea from a non mechanic, who has replaced one heater core on a different vehicle years ago.

2004 town and country A/C or Heater don't blow for a long time and then suddenly start to blow

If the fan works in the rear and not in the front my solution maybe your issue, if this is not the case disregard. On the passenger side under the dash on the heater/ac ducting there is a cluster of 3 or 4 wires going to a connect that is held in place with two screws, remove the screws and get another one and this should fix your front air blower.

2001 town & country limited blows cold air intermittenly. happens with both front and rear. Changed thermostat, radiator cap, both needed anyway. Temp gages are fine. hoses in and out of heater core...

If the hoses to the rad is hot the chances are there is an air lock in the heating core. The best place to bleed the air out is at the top. If there is no provision for bleeding air you will have to slacken the hose and manipulate it to allow water/air out.
Make sure for safety's sake the engine is cold to prevent scalding yourself. Have an assistant topping up the engine rad while you are working on the bleeding operation
