Either the thermostat is sticking or you have a blown head gasket.
Also if your hoses have started to wear and you are loosing coolent this will cause the same problem. Check the engine oil if it has a milky apperance water may be getting into oil sure sign of a head gasket problem

No heat in dodge durango 2000

First solution--check to make sure radiator is full of antifreeze. If not, top up to 1 inch below the top--then run engine 10 minutes--should be heating if antifreeze level was down a quart or more. Second solution--drive car 5 minutes--find open highway--dry road--floor the gas--if engine thermostat is sticking --this MAY blow it open. If there is now heat--the problem is a sticking thermostat. Thirdly, if no solution-- there is a possible plugged heater core--take to technician for testing. (This is under dashboard & extreme work needed to remove.)

The heater will not blow warm air until you start driving. The fan blows but its cold air. Once you start driving the air turns warm. Why?

There may not be enough coolant in the system. What happends is the heating core is nothing more than a small radiator inside the car. If the fluid is low the heating core is empty. But once you start driving the water pump works harder and fills it up. Another possible cause is a sticking thermostat. If its stuck open the engine cant retain water to heat it up. Thus blowing cold air. Whith the engine cold remove the radiator cap and check your coolant level. If it is full a replacement thermostat may be needed. HTH and dont forget to rate.

Car doesn't heat up like it should. It may possibly be the thermostat sticking. Where is it located at on my 1996 Plymouth Breeze?

Thermostat sits under the radiator cap, under that housing is where the thermostat is at, where the upper radiator hose hooks up to the motor, thermostat housing held on with two small bolts.when remove thermostat do it with cold engine.Hope this was very helpful.

My2006 magnum keeps over heating

The thermostat could be causing this problem. Once they age they have a tendency to "stick". It's not an expensive fix. Give that a shot first. If after it is replaced it continues to overheat, start considering the radiator or the fan that cools the radiator the problem. Hope this helps, good luck!
