Question about 1998 Dodge Caravan
I have a 1990 dodge caravan and the heater is not heating as well and I think that the heater motot is squealing. Is that possible and where do I locate the heater motor. Is there a place to lubricate it? Thanking you in advance.
Hi my name is Allen!
The blower motor squealing is because the bearing have gone bad within the motor, unfortunately the only fix for this problem is replacement of the part. The motor is located on th passenger side under the dash, mounted on the bottom of the A/C Housing, held on by 3 screws, very easy to remove and replace.
The no heat problem has nothing to do with the other.
Here is some things to look for:
First; make sure your radiator is full of coolant, do not remove the cap unless it has had time to cool or you could get burnt. If it is low fill it and recheck the heater to see if it is working properly. If it is full move on the the next check out procedure.
second: run the engine until it is at operating temperature, after it is warmed up grab the heater hose at the firewall going into the heater core, then grab the other hose going into the heater core, If one of them is to hot to hang on to, and the other one is only luke warm then you have a restricted heater core. Let me know what you find then we will continue with the repair procedure.
