You may have a air pocket and it needs to be bleed. check and see if both heater core hoses are getting hot

Just fixed this on my 2001 Grand caravan. be sure to use HOAT anti freeze like Zerex G-05. Your problem lies in the heater control valve located on the return line from your heater core. Located on the drivers side firewall a black plastic piece connected between hoses. Mixing HOAT and regular anti freeze will gel and cause this problem. Backflush system, replace heater control valve, thermostat and new HOAT antifreeze and you should have the heat fixed. A radiator pressure checker will be beneficial in forcing anti freeze into the heater core so you won't have any air block. Good luck

SOURCE: 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)

Check and see if you have an in-line thermostat.. Possibly on the hose going to heating unit

It sounds like the engine coolant thermostat might be stuck in the open position, if your heat gauge is reading cold that is likely the problem...You should be able to find a you tube video about changing the thermostat, it's fairly easy.

unfortunately these engines are known for this condition and for head gasket failure.with engine cold pressurize cooling system with spark plugs removed.look down into holes with flashlight after about ten minutes.....im betting youll see a puddle of coolant on piston...usually its cyl# 2 or 3.i cant think of any other possibility for system repeatedly airlocking other than a head gasket.good news they are probably one of the easier ones to replace.

I have 2001 chevy s 10 you turn defroster on have no heat just cold air could the thermastate be bad. thank you


Well, if the thermostat in the engine was bad, it might overheat not stay cold.

Sounds more like a vacuum tube problem with the climate control that controls the door that leads to the heater core.

You should probably replace the temperature sensor first, make sure the car is indeed overheating.

If after replacing the temp sensor, and the problem does exist, then buy a flush kit, and back flush the system, it may be clogged.

sounds to me like they have removed your thermostat as this is a real good indicatiopn of that. if you dont have one in the temp of your water stays really low as it is always moving unlike when thermostatically controlled where heat opens the valve. either way the car should be fine but will need it replacing if you live realy warm climate.
