Heater only works on heat won't switch over to defroster or vents


Sounds like the blend door. The actuator motor is located on top of the box (behind the glove box) and is notorious for failing.

Air only comes out defrost in all settings


I just fixed mine. The lever that opens and closes a door that directs the air flow to the defroster was broken. To be more specific, the plastic lever the actuator attaches to was broken. The actuator and the vacuum system were operating properly. It is simple to see but hard to get to. Remove the glove box and look up and to the left for a silver vacuum controlled actuator. I was able to fabricate another lever and attach it to what was left of the OEM lever.

I have a 1998 dodge 3500 van. When you turn the air conditioning on it won't let the air come through the vents like it is blocked. It works fine when you have it on fan and defrost


there is vacuum lines that operates door panels in the dash to switch from a/c to defrost i think something came loose or you had something fall throgh vents to stop the door from operating correctly.you need to take the glove box panel out and watch the lever as you switch from defrost to a/c.

I have a 1997 dodge dakota and there is smoke coming in from the heater vents some times it doesn't happen but most of the time it is billowing out. Could be heater core or water pump not sure


Only way to get smoke (steam) billowing in is a faulty heater core. It won't steam until the engine is warm. You should also be smelling an odor unless you have pure water in your cooling system. That vehicle requires the removal of the steering column and entire dashboard to replace the heater core.
