    Check and make sure there is plenty of coolant in the system. As for the squeaky fan motor, it will need to be replaced soon. It is usually located under the dash on the passenger side.

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.

For further assistance you may reach me at FixYa!

1999 Dodge Grand Caravan heat is cold

There are two possibilities, one is the thermostat. Many people remove them which spoils the whole heating / cooling system. Since you changed the thermostat, I would check the heater valve on the heater which allows the hot water to circulate through the heating system.
It may be necessary to remove the heater box and flush the heater core since you talk about a lot of rust, which could have clogged the heater core and / or the pipes leading to the heater.

Car heat takes 10 to 15 minutes on a 2005 dodge

could be clogged up heater core or the heating helper element ..if you look for the heater air box you should see a 3 wire plug with i believe its 2 screws on it remove it and start the car and have someone hold it {not the coil wire ends and turn on the heat it should glow red hot this is the heater coil helper you may also have insufficient antifreeze remove radiator cap and check fluid levels also while your there feel the top and bottom hose to see if they both get hot and that you feel water in them but 1st ensure the radiator is full if just the top hose going into the heater-core to the firewall is hot and the bottom one is cold you should have a radiator flush to dislodge the Gunk buildup in the heater core .

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.

98 dodge caravan wont switch over from cold to hot on the heater controls

Most cars have a cable operated switch under the hood which allows hot coolant to flow into the heater core when the switch is activated. This switch is usually located close to the firewall behind the engine. Look for coolant hoses running to it.

Have someone inside the car change the heater control to heat while you watch the switch. If it's operating correctly, you should be able to see the movement. If this switch does not move, hot coolant is not entering the heater; and you will not get any heat.
