The coolant thermostat needs replaced or you need a coolant flush. Heater cores (in the dashboard) often clog and stop warm coolant from circulating into the heater. A coolant flush would cure this. Flushes usually run from 70 to 90 dollars to have done at a service shop.

Heater blowing cold air and engine overheating for 2002 Dodge Intrepid


first check engine coolant levels, add if low, secondly, check waterpump for proper funtioning, then if the vents are still cold, start looking at the heater hoses for issues and ther is a control valve that lets hot fluid enter the car..if this is locked or stuck you should be able to move the lever by hand and see if it works.. its normally vaccuum operated..good luck

I have a 2001 dodge stratus and the heater only blowed cold aire now we changed the thermostat and it blows warm air when idling but when driving still blows cold need some help please


where did you buy your thermostat? if you bought a fail-safe style thermostat it could have been no good before you even put it in. also is your tempeture gauge coming up to operating temp?? if it isnt your thermostat may be stuck in the open position allowing the coolant to circulate freely and not actually warm up. i would also check the lines going into the heater core. if one line is hot and the other line is cold than your heater core is probably in need of a flush or replacement.

2001 Dodge Caravan heater blows cold air when stopped


Have you checked the coolant level? What you describe is exactly what happens if the coolant level is low. When stopped at idle, hot coolant is not circulating through the heater core, so no heat. As the engine increases in rpm's when you pull away from the light, the water pump is spinning quicker, and some coolant is making it to the heater core. So check the level, and if it is low, keep an eye on it to see if it drops again. That of course indicates a leak somewhere. Get it fixed, as overheating the engine leads to costly repairs and worse case a new engine. Let me know how you make out with this.

Check to make sure that you have the proper antifreeze level in the radiator first. If this is ok, then I would consider looking at the themostat.

2001 Dodge Stratus Overheating


Sounds like you may have a thermostat that is failing or your engine may have had a temporary vapor lock. First of all check your coolant level if that seems fine replace your thermostat. As far as being on high until you shut your heater off is probably just coincidence because when your heater is on it is helping to dissipate the heat from your coolant system.
