Heater blowing cold air on 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan

Just beginning to need the heater and realize that it's blowing only cold air out no matter how long I let it run or what settings I put it on. The a/c is working fine, and the heat was too until just recently because I used it for defrosting the windows not too long ago. I haven't noticed any leaks anywhere. Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks in advance for any help available from a single mom! Wow, interesting that multiple people are having this same issue. It seems when my foot is on the gas the car gets heat, however, when I sit idle at a light or am going down hill, then the air cools off pretty quick. I will check my water/anti-freeze levels first as this seems to be the first recommendation. Will post my results back here.

    Your problem sounds like a vacumn leak? Bad hose, disconnected hose or bad vacuumhose. Hope this helps you, my daughter is a single mom too.

My 1999 caravan is blowing cold air


Check the water Coolant level in the coolant reservoir and also remove the radiator cap, which tends not to be on the radiator any more and check it is full. Also burp the system by removing air licks buy sqeezing the radiator hoses when the system is hot. Remove the radiator cap before you do this. You also need to check the thermostat for correct operation as it might be stuck closed. Remove it, put it in a pot of warm water put it on the stove and you should see it open before it comes to a simmer.

Heater isnt blowing warm air in 2003 grand caravan


Assuming the radiator is full of coolant, you are describing a faulty thermostat. The thermostat is closed when the engine is cold to restrict coolant flow until it warms up.

2001 Dodge Caravan heater blows cold air when stopped


Have you checked the coolant level? What you describe is exactly what happens if the coolant level is low. When stopped at idle, hot coolant is not circulating through the heater core, so no heat. As the engine increases in rpm's when you pull away from the light, the water pump is spinning quicker, and some coolant is making it to the heater core. So check the level, and if it is low, keep an eye on it to see if it drops again. That of course indicates a leak somewhere. Get it fixed, as overheating the engine leads to costly repairs and worse case a new engine. Let me know how you make out with this.
