97 chrysler town and country heater not working at idle

When driving tonight I notices that when I was at idle (a stop sign or in the drive thru) my heater was blowing out cold air. Any ideas where to start before I take it into a shop.

Try checking to make sure your thermostat is working. They are cheap and easy to replace, wouldn't hurt to just get a new one.

SOURCE: heater blows cold air

Check your coolant level, if it's low u won't have adequate heat. If that isn't it, let me know.

Check there is water in it first. A black cap on top of the radiator. If the level is ok then a wee red dipstick should float up.

SOURCE: When driving, heater blows warm air. When idling, cold air.

It sounds to me like you have a plugged heater core, or one that is beginning to plug. With the engine running, carefully feel the two hoses that lead from the engine into the heater core in the firewall. If one of those hoses is colder than the other one then you heater core needs to be replaced. This involves removing a bunch of stuff under the dash. Sometimes it's pretty easy and sometimes not. Start by removing the glove box and you should be able to see the plastic housing for the heater core.

There is a well known problem that is a manufacturer's defect with the soldered connection on the circuit board behind the temperature knob. There is a fix to re-solder the connections but the dealer will gladly take $450 to replace it with the same bad board that will last you a while. Look for the link to show you how to fix it yourself.

2009 Town and Country will over heat both while driving and while idling. I can't figure out where it's leaking from.


I can only assume that perhaps you have a blown head gasket and the coolant is going out the tail pipe .get the system pressure tested .

If the engine idle is too fast the choke is not working properly. Notice if the engine is running at a high idle when you put it in neutral after this occurs.

I have a 2000 Chrysler town and country and every winter or when n it gets cold outside it will cut off while driving and when you are pushing the brake to stop at a stop sign?


Sounds like you may have a bad vacuum brake booster leaking vacuum or your torque convertor is not unlocking for some reason., there are many things that could cause this though and without thoroughly checking it out this is my guess. Hope it helps

My heater hoses have been removed and bypassed. I need a heater hose diagram for my 1998 chrysler town and country van with a 3.8 L. I don't know which hose will plug into which heater core tube


That's easy

Drive around back of a dealer,walk in the open
service bay doors & ask a tech to come out &
tell you.

I walk into dealers all the time, anywhere I want to go,
& never get stopped

If your questioned your just looking for the parts dept & leave

The easiest and simple should be fixed first . Turn off everything in your vehicle, radio, ac. lights, windshield wipers etc. Put the car in park , turn off the key. Disconnect the battery, wait 5 minutes. Without turning anything on in the car reconnect the battery, leave the car in park and start the car. Allow the car to sit and idle for 10 minutes. This allows the cars computer to reset all gauges and sensors uninterupted. If everything remains off including interior lights etc. the computer will not miss any steps in resetting. This step will also reset your cars idle.

2007 chrysler town & country has a rough idle but drives smooth what could it be


If it idles rough it runs rough,you just don't
notice it

You can start anywhere you want

If you haven't changed spark plugs in 3 years do that

Replace any front or upstream O2 Sensors over 100,000 miles

Check fuel pressure,tps sensor voltages,check for loose air
filter cover,vacuum leaks,loose O2 sensor,just go thru the
entire engine,it obviously needs work & I will bet it hasn't seen
much & you don't know what is done when you ask & pay
for work.
May sound harsh but many shops aren't there to resolve problems,
they throw on as many parts as the people on this site do at home,
from the questions is see here,dealers guess as well and don't road
test,kind of sad really
