SOURCE: Blend door not working.

The bleed door controls air temp not where it comes out, dash, floor, defroster, this is most likely a mode control switch problem, that switch is on the ac control head.

SOURCE: Replacing alternator in a 2001 Dodge Intrepid

the easiest way is going to first be to remove the serpentine belt which requires you to loosen the nut on the end of the idler pulley just above the alternator, then behind the pulley is a bolt with a 13mm head on it that you will want to loosen after the pulley is loose to relieve tension off the belt. Remove the belt. Next make sure you remove the battery cables to ensure you dont fry yourself to the car when unhooking the electrical connections from the alternator, your battery is located on the passenger side, down behind and underneath the headlight. Then go under the car and remove the black plastic clips that hold the splash shield up under the bumper. After this the alternator becomes as accesible as it can be, remove it from the bottom. Thanks for using fixya!!

SOURCE: CDs are stuck in the default cd player of 2001 Dodge Intrepid.

The first step is turning the car off. Then before turning the key back on, push and hold the Eject button then turn the ignition on. If the CD fails to eject then you can use a old CD and try to insert it into the CD Player, just as it try's to take your second CD pull it out and hit the Eject button again. This will usually get a Dodge CD player to Eject.
If this fails then the CD player must be removed and a manual eject can be performed.

SOURCE: How to replace a Blend

Blend door mixes hot and cold, not a distribution control. Look for loose or dislodged vac lines... Heater designed to fail in defrost mode.

How do i fix a stuck blend door on 2010 dodge nitro?

I would pull off the blend door actuator and swap it out with a new one. Or another option is to swap it out with one of the other actuators. The blend door actuator is interchangeable with the actuators for the mode-air doors and the recirculation-air door.

Disconnect and isolate the negative battery cable.

If equipped, remove the silencer from below the driver side of the instrument panel.

Disconnect the wire harness connector from the blend door actuator located on the driver side of the air distribution housing.

Remove the two screws that secure the blend door actuator to the actuator mounting bracket and remove the actuator

I just bought my teen a 2001 dodge intrepid...the heat is not working. I am told to check antifreeze and thermostat? I just bought alread-mixed antifreeze/coolant. Can I just add this to the radiator...

Premixed antifreeze is fine to add as long as the label says for all makes/models. If the coolant level is full, then the problem might be the "blend door" or the actuators that operate them. Since servicing the blend doors or actuators require a better than average knowledge of auto mechanics, I would refer this to a shop that you trust. If the car has a temp gauge and it is reading normal, I doubt the thermostat is bad. You might possibly have a plugged heater core. Not common for a car this new, but...You can look for the two water hoses that attach at the firewall next to each other. Just disconnect them and using the garden hose and low pressure, flush the core in both directions. If you get good flow then the most likely problem is the blend door(s) or actuators.

My 98 dodge intrepid's heater works great until I come to a stop or am sitting in park but as soon as I take off it starts blowing out hot air again.

This sounds like a bad blend door vacuum actuator to me.
If the heater core is hot at idle, but the inside cabin doesn't get hot air, then the blend door is something to look into.

Good luck on this repair.

We have a 1997 Dodge Intrepid. Heater, defroster blows ice cold air. Where is the vacuum line to open and close the warm air, cold air door in the heater system? It seems to be drawing cold air from the...

The Intrepid doesn't have a vacuum line. It uses a electric motor called a "blend door actuator". It's located on the underside of the heater box near the center of the car.

My heater does not heat

Sounds like the heater blend door. The actuator may be stuck or broken. The actuator opens and closes to adjust for the heat setting in the car. You might be able to take a coathanger and manually open the door if you can get to the control arm. They are usually hard to get to and pretty expensive. It is located under the dash at the heater core box. Good luck.

No heat Heater core is hot

If heater core is getting coolant circulating through it then you may have a temp blend door, or blend door actuator not working properly. The blend door is located in the air box under the dash, and the actuator is located on the air box. You may be able to visually check the operation while turning the temp knob, by locating the coresponding actuator on the air box and monitoring the movement. If it is moving ok and still no heat then the blend door, or lever is broken, which will require removal of the dash.
