Question about 1994 Dodge Grand Caravan

1 Answer

No heat Hello, I've got a 1994 Dodge grand caravan. I can't get heat out of the thing. I've flushed the heater core and the radiator twice. I've replaced the thermostat. The old one seemed a little weak but the new one hasn't helped the heat issue. The control cable seems to work fine without binding or any issues. If I squeeze the hoses ( like milking a cow) going to the heater core I will get some heat for a short while. But after about 10 minutes heat stops again. Even then it's not as much heat as you'd normally get out of a decent working heater. Thanks for any ideas.

    Note: it's a 3.8L engine if that helps.

air in the system .before doing all that .you should have put a dadiator flush in the expansion bottle .then run it for about 20 miles then drain it.you do this to clean out the radiator core of dirt and rust.and it cleans the heater core .then bleed the air out by turning your heater of full .run the engine till water starts to get hot .then refit the cap.

Start with having the heater core flushed and also make sure the valve that allows coolant to flow through the heater core is opening and closing correctly when switching from heat to A/C. Please rate this answer, thanks.

Car heat takes 10 to 15 minutes on a 2005 dodge


could be clogged up heater core or the heating helper element ..if you look for the heater air box you should see a 3 wire plug with i believe its 2 screws on it remove it and start the car and have someone hold it {not the coil wire ends and turn on the heat it should glow red hot this is the heater coil helper you may also have insufficient antifreeze remove radiator cap and check fluid levels also while your there feel the top and bottom hose to see if they both get hot and that you feel water in them but 1st ensure the radiator is full if just the top hose going into the heater-core to the firewall is hot and the bottom one is cold you should have a radiator flush to dislodge the Gunk buildup in the heater core .

No heat on a 1994 4 cyl. Dodge Caravan


Pretty common on those. I used CLR and disconnected my heater hoses & with a small pump, I ran CLR only, through the heater core, and let it sit in there overnight, flushed it through again next day, back flush as well. re-connect hoses, run engine with heater on, and rad cap off until the rad fan comes on 2 or 3 times, then put cap back on, to bleed air out of system. Cleaned it out enough to get the heat flowing again. If you changed thermostat and didn't let it run with heat on, and rad cap off for a while as described above, then do that first, just to make sure you haven't just got an air lock in the system.
