It's a big job. Drain the coolant down, recover the freon in the ac system and disconnect the lines and heater hoses. Lower the steering column, remove the instrument panel assembly, remove the heater housing. Split the case halves on the housing and there you are. Usually around 500 to 700 dollars at a dealership.

You most likely have air in the cooling system.You would need to bleed the cooling system of air.There should have bleed screws near water neck,or thermostat.Do this cold.Remove the radiator cap and fill full.Then start the engine and loosen the screws and watch for nothing but coolant to flow out(no air or bubbles).When you are sure the air is gone out of the cooling system,shut the bleeder screw off,and fill radiator up and test to see that engine runs cool,and you have heat at all speeds and rpm s.The electric cooling fan should come on at a tempuratue of about 215 or so.But just as important,the cooling fan should cut off at a lower tempurature.If the cooling fan does not do this,you still have air in the system.If you can not get the air out this way,then do this.Remove the radiator cap and reservoir cap and fill them both up full.The reservoir needs to be over the fill mark a good deal.Replace the caps.Start the engine with ac and heat off.Let it run until the engine gets to about 212 or 215 degrees and shut the engine off.Wait about 30 minutes and check the reservoir to see if the coolant has dropped.It should have dropped.If the reservoir has dropped or not ,do this again and again untill the reservoir drops in coolant level,and engine temp is good(fan goes on and goes off).Remember to refill the reservoir as needed as it drops,not to run out of coolant.

two things--first replace your cabin air filter.second reverse flush your heater core with a garden hose and that should remove the build up of material in your heater core and restore the flow,hope this helps

This is a common problem, Ford garage will charge you about 1000.00 to fix it. It's an all day job for someone who knows what they're doing. I wouldn't recommend this if you aren't familiar with cars. If you still want to go at it, get a book for your car, you will like that much better. It has pictures!

I have a 2000 Dodge Durango. The heater blows cold air, the a/c works fine. I was told this could be a bad fuse.


the thermostat that regulates the water temperature is bad. it is in the open position keeping the water from heating

Barely any heat coming out of my heater


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.

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.)

I just bought a 2000 4x4 Dodge Durango. The temperature gauge reads properly at about half way, but the heat blows air that is not really hot even though I have the heat at maximum warm. What is the...


try feeling your heater hoses going from the engine to the heater core. they should be hot at operating temperature. If one is hotter than the other noticably it would indicate a restriction in the core most likely. A partially stuck thermostat could also cause loss of heat but you say the temp is normal. Start with checking hose temperature if they are both on the cool side compared to the radiator hose then further diagnostics are necessary. hope this helps. Keep in touch.

I have a 99 durango i have replaced heater core water pump thermostat and all hoses still barley any heat just warm vehicle comes up to normal temp does not over heat but still no heat please help


Are the heater core hoses getting hot? That could be a blockage in the intake manifold or engine block. Is the blend door sticking? That would be one item that would make for lukewarm air if the hoses feel nice and hot when up to operating temperature.

2000 durango won't blow hot heat, temp is 210 degrees, replaced thermistat


what motor? i have a dodge ram 4x4 with a 5.9 and the thermostat is rated at 195. if you havent noticed any coolant loss, its not your heater core. try bleeding the system (starting the car with the radiator cap off, and then filling with antifreeze after the thermostat opens up) because sometimes air caught in your system will do that.

Make sure you chek out the coolent level and if the level is fine, the next step to go is the heater core. it should be one of these 2 solutions!!

Heat 2001 dodge durango


a bad heater core will just leak. it could leak alot. do you ever smell antifreeze? check the coolant level. it can get pretty low before it will overheat. the thermostat should be ok but there could be corrosion. when you had the water pump replaced was the cooling system flushed? 2001, its probably due for a flush. what coolant does it take? (green or orange)
