Could be a blend door problem. You would need fresh air from the outside to keep the windows from fogging up. If the blend door that controls outside air gets stuck or fails to open, you may not get fresh air. The ac compressor would also need to run every few minutes to dry the air hitting the windshield.

SOURCE: I want to replace the fog lights for my wife's

You can reach below the front bumper, behind each of the fog lights and turn counter-clockwise to remove each bulb, then simply un plug the harness. This done from outside the car not under the hood. Once you removed the 2 bulbs go to your auto parts supplier and puchase the bulbs. Reverse this procedure to install the bulbs. Try not to touch the actuall glass part of the bulb because the acid/oil on your skin will in fact decrease the life of the bulbs. You do not need any tools for replacing the fog light bulbs.. Just patience...

SOURCE: my 2001 oldsmobile silhouette keeps over heating.

Hi!

I have and 98 Intrepid 3800 motor, and had same problem.

I tried a few things, but what finally worked was when I took the car for a complete cooling system flush, they opened the radiator and cleaned every single passage line, flushed motor and heater core,

It cost me about $100 but I havent had a problem since. I recommend you do the same.

There is a screw on the thermostat housing that is used to purge the air out of the cooling system. On your owner's manual are detailed instruccions of this procedure.

If helpful, click below. Good Luck

Why do the windows on my 2009 caravanfog uponce Istart todrive?The windows will beclear after I warm it up but once I start drive they fog up.I do not smell antifreezeand the heater core lookslikenew.


windows fog up on the inside simply because of the hot breath of the occupants
this heat is cooled by the screen and condenses and so a fog is created
simple physics really - hot moisture + cold air =rain to over come this quickly run the air conditioner ( climate control) and that takes the moisture out of the air in the car and then the windscreen clears
you are going to say that it is too cold for the ac to run well at the same time run the heater until you have a pleasant temperature that is dry ( climate control--when it gets too hot the ac cuts in and when it gets to cold the ac switches off BUT the moisture that causes the fog on the windows is gone )

Dodge durango 2001 fogging up windows not defrosting


It's most likely your heater core that is causing the problem it could be leaking either from the core it's self causing anti freeze to get into your vents or from one of the hoses leading to it.....I am assuming that when your heat is on there is a dampness in the air this is what is causing the windows to fog up.

Where are the cabin filters located in an 2001 Oldsmobile Silhoueete Premiere?


Open the instrument panel compartment door on the passenger side. Remove the rear inside compartment door. Open the access door and you will see one filter, pull it out and the second one is further in next to where the first one was. Reverse for install.
Please let me know if I may further assist you.

you replace the fog lamps by going under front bumper fascia.remove the pushpins and take down the splash shield to access the back of the fog lamps.then you remove two bolts retaining the fog lamp to the back of front bumper.besure to wear clean gloves.because fog lamps is halogen bulbs.if you touch with bare hands the oils from hands will make the bulbs over heat and blow out.
