    Blower works just fine. Mechanic thinks head gasket but he never mentioned water in the oil during last oil change. Car does not over heat!!

    CHECK TO SEE IF WHEN U TURN UR CAR ON THE FAN FROM THE ENGINE START AUTOMATICLY FANNING THE RADIATOR IF THATS NOT IT THEN GO TO THE NEAREST JUNK YARD AND GET YOUR SELF A HEATER COIL IT WOULD BE WAY CHEAPER THEN BUYING A NEW ONE ,

  • FRANK Jan 16, 2013

    ALSO U CAN TELL IF WATER IS MIXING IN WITH YOUR OIL JUST TAKE THE OIL CAP OFF AND CHECK THE TOP INSIDE TO SEE IF U SEE ANY WHITE RESIDUE , AND ALSO YOU CAN CHECK THE END OF THE MUFFLER PIPE WHEN THE CAR IS HOT AND SEE OR TOUCH WITH A RAG IF WATER IS COMEING OUT OF IT : )

SOURCE: 1996 Dodge Dakota heater doesn't get very hot only gets warm

it could be the heater controls itself i had a 95 ford f150 that did the same thing i replaced everything i could as i live in upstate ny and in the winter it gets pretty cold so replaced all i could ,heater coil,radiator,thermostat,coolant and nothing a local mechanic told me to check the control in the dash to see if it was going all the way to the hot position. i took the dash apart to get to it and checked it and the cable that mmoves the valve on the heater coil was stretched so it wasnt going all the way to hot. not that its the same thing but its a place to start

SOURCE: 1996 dodge intrepid 3.3 transmission wont shiftout of first gear

two issues here. this may be a low fluid issue. i would check the level of the fluid first. the next issue could be a blown shift solenoid. these are located inside of the transmission pan.also, check the filter as well.(transmission filter could be clogged)

SOURCE: How often should I bleed air from the cooling system?

check your oil and make sure you dont ahve a blown head gasket and that your thermostat is good (throw it in boiling water and see if it opens), and if you are losing water/coolant with no drips or puddles than it may be leaking in a cylinder which means bad head gasket as well

check and see if there is a bleeder for the cooling system its usally located be the thermostat , there is a posibility it could be air bound. also if your claim is overheating and you are seeing this on the gauge try to verify coolant temp with a scanner you may have a bad sensor for the gauge-Goodluck

2002 dodge intrepid the heat blows but doesn't get hot! Had the thermostat replaced but still no heat. What would be the problem?


either a heat switch is not switching heat to the compartment or else the thermostat in the cooling system is defective. when it is not open it does not let hot water to the internal heating system, has your engine been overheating or running hot? also as this would be a symtom.

I have a 1996 Dodge Intrepid witha 3.3 engine. The heat just stop working. The blower works but I am not getting much heat to warm up the car or defrost the windows. What could be my problem?


Check the coolant level if low air in the system will cause little or no heat out the vents. If coolant good I'd recommend replacing thermostat. If low would some sort of coolant leak, possible waterpump leak, or hoses if visible on the ground after filling. If no visible leaks could be head gasket leaks.

My 1996 Dodge Intrepid, 3.5 liter has an interior heat issue. When the engine is warm and I turn on the heat (with the cool/warm lever on the warmest setting) the air will be warm, then cool, warm then...


Hi,
put your hand on the heater hoses going into the cabin. Carefully. they should both be hot. If so, you have decent circulation. Does your car have a temperature gauge? When this happens, is the temp normal? Is the check engine light on? You may have a failing thermostat. Sticking open at times.

make sure that the system has been bled of all the air to do this there should be a little bleeder screw near the thermostat housing open this up until water comes out start the car and turn the heater on high watch for any air bubbles to come out of the bleeder until it is straight fluid coming out see if this fixes it, also check the radiator cap this could cause overheating too, if this is all fine check the fan switches to make sure they come on at right temperature.
