Very Little Heat in 96 Chrysler Concorde

The car does warm up to proper operating temperature, and there is a new thermostat that is set to the correct temperature, but I only get heat, marginal at best, when the fan motor is running at about half speed, wide open blows cold air, but the defrost works better

did you check the fluid level by removing the rad. cap? Radiator should be full to top. If Chryslers are low on coolant, the heater will not blow warm air.

SOURCE: how can I reset the service engine light

disconnect the positive terminal of the battery for 2 minutes then put it back it should clear it
but if the computer detects a problem it will come back on and you should have it put on a computer diagnostic machine to correct the fault codes

SOURCE: Heater on 1995 Chrysler Concorde stopped heating.

there are no reset codes, did you bleed the air out of the cooling system? if not do this procedure, if that doeasn't fix it u have a failed air temperasture control blend door motor actuator.
The generic method of bleeding air from the cooling system is to use a floor jack and raise the front of the car as high as poss, then fill the coolant recovery tank full and run the engine until it just starts to overheat, high end of normal zone on gauge, then shut the engine down and run cold water over the radiator core, this will self bleed the system and the coolant will be pulled from the recovery tank, repeat as necessary, never let the recovery tank run dry or more air will be pulled into the cooling systeml ,

SOURCE: how to replace the thermostat on a 2002 chrysler

The Thermostat is under the connector for the upper radiator hose on the Engine. Trace the upper Radiator hose back to the engine and remove the 2 to 3 bolts holding the engine mounting to the engine. The thermostat is under that. If you don't have the thermostat already you can remove it and replace the cover and drive to the Auto parts store and purchase it then drive back and put the new part in after the engine cools. If you are replacing this because of over heating doing this will tell you if that was truly the problem or if the problem was actually the water pump. Using the vehicle over short distances without the thermostat will not damage your engine in the summer months. It is mainly there for winter months to let the engine warm up before the cooling fluid starts flowing anyway. Heck, I have one vehicle that hasn't had a thermostat in it for 2 years now. Runs great.

97 chrysler concorde lxi wont blow hot air


before doing anything, make sure your coolant level is up to the mark on the reservoir bottle, and that the car actually reaches correct operating temperature. on this car, temperature is easy to check because there's a gauge on the dash. after warming up, the needle should be about half way up. if it isn't, replace the thermostat.

if none of those things are wrong, then there's a malfunction in one of the blend doors in the hvac box. gaining access to that is extremely involved and best left to a very experienced mechanic.

Car temp guage stays cold. Only warms up if not driving. Low heat while driving.


Your thermostat is bad. The thermostat lets the engine warm up before letting the coolant circulate.

2001 Chrysler Sebring When i turn the heat on it is very weak sometimes none and, on the left side of the vents it is not hot at all verses the right side of the vents wich are luke warm.


Not putting out any heat at all or very little heat - when the engine is hot - suggests a coolant flow problem. Might try flushing out the cooling system if it has been more than 75,000 miles since it was done - if it was ever done. Sometimes the thermostat can get stuck and in colder climates this can prevent the engine from warming up to operating temperature and contribute to this type of issue. Short of flushing out the coolant with fresh new antifreeze - use the correct type - your likely culprit is a mixing door operating intermittently or not at all.

When I start my 2004 Pacifica;everything is fine, but as I drive care begans to heat up. Coolant is new,oil recently chnaged. What do I do ?


It is very probable that your thermostat is stuck. The thermostat, when operating properly, regulates the temperature of the engine. As the engine heats and comes to proper temperature the thermostat will begin to open allowing the warm/hot coolant to travel to and thru the radiator where it then is cooled and pumped back in to the engine. At times the thermostat may stick (even open a bit) and cause the engine to overheat. The good news is this is an inexpensive part @ $5 - $10 which will include a new gasket. One way to check this is to let the engine come to heat (do not let it over heat) as it warms place your hand on the radiator...is it getting warm too? if not (or just a bit of warmth) the thermostat is probably your issue. Please be carefull to keep your hands away of rotating parts and any fans that may start without a warning.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom

89 cadillac sedan deville not blowing heat !!


Yes, that would involve removing the old thermostat, installing a new one, and also a new gasket. What does your temperature gauge indicate when the car has run a while and is warmed up? If the gauge indicates that it is running on the low side, or never seems to warm up, it could indicate a thermostat stuck in the open position, which will prevent it from reaching operating temperature, and would explain little or no heat situation. 1st, tough, check the coolant level. If it's low it could cause the no heat problem.

Temperature gauge is up and down


Sounds like youve noyiced the first sign of a failing thermostat.Its now taking more heat to open the thermostat or its jamming on the slide when it opens and closes.Good luck with it and pay special attention to your temp gauge until its replaced.
