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 would have to say the resistor also. Cheap part and the labor is free when you do it yourself. It should be located behind your glovebox.

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.

SOURCE: heating / air conditioning control stuck to front defrost vents

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.

2003 dodge durango front heater will not blow heat. but when driving heat will slowly come throught the heater vents. what should i check?


Since your blower is working and it is a heat issue,thats where we'll start,First thing is have you checked the coolant level in the radiator when engine is cold,make sure it is filled to top,next verify you have coolant in reserve ,Start your van and get it up to normal operation temperature,If your heat gauge on the dash works correctly it should be 190 degrees,Now lift the hood and locate the two heater hoses going into the heater assembly at the fire wall,Both hoses should be hot to hold on to,if both are hot and no heat inside your problem will be the blend air door in heater assembly.
if neither hose is that hot you need to replace the thermostat in the engine to get it up to 195 degrees.
if one hose is hot and one is luke warm then the heater core is blocked and to blame. hope this helps you.

Ford Taurus Heater won't switch over to AC


I guess first thing to find out is why compressor is not coming on, as without that running you won't get any cool air. May just need a recharge, but I would have that checked out first. If system is low on freon, it won't engage, and if it is low, why, as in where is leak & how much to fix it, would be my first concern.

1998 FORD EXPEDITION AC/HEATER BLOWER


This problem is caused my the blend door actuator motor, the electric motor turns to allow the flap to open either to cool or heat and then through the vents. The problem has been either the motor is going bad or the actual motor stops working. There are small plastic gears that strip in the motor causing this. I have replaced several in the rear unit. The front one is under the dash next to the heater core. The dashboard must be removed. It is a big job.
Please rate me and let me know if this helped.
