Sound like you have a bubble in the system. make sure you drain all liquid out, make sure the thermostat is the proper temp rating and is not backwards. Fill the radiator up turn the car on turn the heater on full blast fill up the over flow with anti freeze. put the radiator cap on. watch the temp in the car. dont let it get all the way in the red. you should see the overflow tank start to get the anti freeze sucked out of it don't let run dry. I had this problem with my 2004 dodge ram. This is how a master mech told me to do it

I have no heat inside my cab on a 2003 dodge ram 2500. heater core is not blocked


either you have a bad thermostat or you have a air lock in your heater hoses remember your heater is fed by the hose by the upper rad hose return is the hose going to the water pump, to bleed the air out fill rad leave the rad cap off start engine run for 5 min. the check the coolant level,fill to top of neck replace rad cap tight, K-D tools make a special funnel to solve this air lock problem

Little or no heat


Is both heater hoses hot? Could need radiator and heater core flush. Water pump propellers could be detoriated. I have seen this on vehicles before. Just some ideas to look at.

No heat


Either your heater core is plugged or the system has an air lock. To cure an air lock loosen the rad cap, not the overflow, to the first notch and run the truck for a day or two. Check the coolant level often and keep it topped up. If this doesn't solve the problem you could try a "reverse flush" on the system to loosen up whatever is blocking the heater core, otherwise you'll have to replace the core. Hope this helps.

No heat /new heater core / new control /new thermo/ ?


Did you re-fill coolant with heater turned on ?(not defrost) Leave rad or coolant return bottle cap off when engine cold, and turn heater on and add coolant as needed to keep level up. Let engine get to normal operating temperature, and wait for rad fan to kick in and out, indicating thermostat has opened, and coolant is circulating. Let that fan kick in 2 or 3 times and keep adding coolant as needed, and check heat periodically to see if starting to throw heat. When your getting good heat, put cap back on, top up return bottle, and you should be good. I suspect an airlock in heater core. I don't see the year anywhere so I'm guessing you have a rad cap, and if that is the case, leave it off as described, and watch for increased flow in rad when it gets up to normal operating temperature, which tells you thermostat is opening. Watch for that flow, 2 or 3 times, and you should be getting heat by then. If that isn't cure, get back to me with more info on year, engine etc. Keep me posted on your progress.

Changed the thermostate and drained the radiatior and put new fluids in brought car to running temp but heater still wont blow hot are


Feel of the heater hoses going to the heater core,if they are not getting hot,then remove the heater hoses and flush the heater core out with a water hose.Also be sure to bleed all the air out of the cooling system.

Very little heat in the cab, changed thermostat,didn,t help.


If your antifreeze levels are fine ,if your blower motor is running ,then I would guess your heat selector switch is bad.

I have a 1999 dodge 1500 4x4 i replaced the rad and heater core and now thermostat and water pump 2 months ago/it is over heating and not putting out any heat in the cab antifrezze is comming out the over...


it will be one of two things air is in the system or the thermostate is wrong or installe wrong. to get air out remove rad cap when cold turn heat on floor and run vehicle while watching fluid level in rad, sometimes you have to run at 1500 rpms for a while to get engine temp up but be careful when you let off throttle the water will come right at you so cap it off before you let off throttle

1999 dodge 2500 4x4 no heat in cab


you may have a couple different problems. the thermostat may be stuck open hterefore not allowing your engine to heat up properly. the coolant will just circulate through the engine and rad without heating up to proper temp. the other problem you may have is that you might have a plugged heater core thus not allowing the coolant to circulate through the core and give you heat.
I would recomend checking the thermostat and see if it is operating properly. an easy way to check it is by opening your rad when the engine is cold. start your truck and watch the coolant in the rad. If the thermostat is stuck open you should see the coolant circulating through the rad. This is not always the best way to check but it is an easy way to see. the other way which involves a little more work is to take the thermostat housing off and physically inspecting the thermostat.
hope this helps you out
