Question about 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 2WD
Since we got our truck November 2007, We have always had the problem in the winter time with the heat not getting hot. Mechanically speaking, the truck is fine. No over heating(I've had this issue in the past with a car of mine, and it affected the warmth in the car.), we have coolant, not water in the radiator, fans turn on when they should, the engine runs at an ideal temperature all the time. Just no warmth in the truck! Me, being a small female, I get chilled, and would rather take my clunker of a car, just so I stay warm! We'll have the fan speed on high, and the temperature knob all the way up, and the inside of the truck gets lukewarm.
I've suspected Heater Core, my dad suspects heater control valve, or thermostat... And I'm trying to keep my fiance from going to a repair shop on something that could be done, possibly, by myself! Please help!
Circulation of hot hot water to inside cabin to heater core ..and fan blowing strong are all necessary here.....back flush system.. (good cooling system service) including flushing teh heater lines with all heater lines open ...refill and test... or to be sure replace thermostat and any suspect heater hoses at same time....a good shop with infrared gun can trace heat and locate blockage if necessary... good luck
