Question about 2000 Dodge Durango
I3 years ago my durango started having trouble with its heater,, it blows and stuff and ac and all that works but its the amoutn of heat that comes out,, it has some, and its totally fine till ya really need enough to keep the windows defogged and stuff,, but it only has enough to keep ya from freezing todeath and say -10 -20 i am in snow boots and snowpants in the truck,, one time a guy took the rad cap off we ran the durango and it bubbled up and bled out the air in the rad and there was alot and it was improved by maybe 50 percent for about 5 miles and he also checked the hoses and they were all hot so engine side its sending the heat the knobs all turn good and turn on llike its suppose to but very little heat any suggestetions ?
Check to make sure the coolant level is full. Make sure the thermostat is working, you temp gauge will read low if it is not. Most likely the heater core is plugged, very common on the durangos. You can have a service done to the heater core called back flushing. It may not be a bad idea to flush the cooling system at the same time especially if it has never been done. If you get more heat after the flush drive for a week or so and then have it flushed again. If the heat is now adequate you just saved yourself 5 or 6 hundred dollars. If the heat is still not good than you will need to replace the heater core.

i have a '86 dodge ram w/318 - got it for free , only running on 4 out of 8. rebuilt carb (holley 2280 2 barrel ) still has no power but sounds like it's hitting on all 8. found on web a "power heat valve"between the passenger side exhaust manifold and the down pipe. it's in the haynes manual page 4a-22 illustration16.1 - i can't imagine what it should do when it's working (why choke off half your exhaust-ever) but i am going to check that out.have to get by a lot of rust first. good luck!

SOURCE: air conditioner blows hot air,
As long as the belt is turning the compressor than the only other thing would be that the refrigerant (R-134) is not full. You can buy re-charging kits at any local auto parts store, although they recommend that you have a licensed dealer remove the old refrigerant so it dosn't go into the atmosphere. Good luck.

There is a vacuum leak under the hood. Find the vacuum line on the passenger side where it comes through the firewall and follow it to the engine. You system needs vacuum to operate and without it the default setting is on defrost for safety reasons.
