Question about 2003 Dodge Durango

Heater does not work. Truck dies at stops

My 1993 f-150 will die at stops and low rpm. But it wont die till I press on the gas a little... The heater is blowing cold to. Last year I had the same problem, but I had the higher than basic oil change done. Flush, etc... and this fixed the problem last year. I just had the basic oil change done this year and the problem isnt fixed... What should I do?

As far as heat goes I would replace your Thermostat and that should stop it from blowing cold due to the fact its probably stuck open unless your heater switcher arnt switching from vent to heat when you turn them. Does your temp gauge show your truck is running cooler then it use too? As far as it dying when you come to a stop that might be a few things I would check idle screw first then plugs clean or replace then Go to throttle position sensor (TPS) or AIR TEMPERATURE SENSORS (IAT) sensor. They somtimes wont turn your service engine light on but still will cause problems if they need cleaned.

2004 Chevy Tahoe not idling properly, and dies. Heater also blows cold when at a low rpm.


If you have looked up the code and it tells you the vehicle is running lean and you have changed the O2 sensors, you may have a clogged fuel filter or worst yet a fuel pump that is going bad and not providing enough pressure. Take it to a repair shop and ask them to test the pressure. It is an inexpensive test that will only take a couple of minutes. If the pressure is low try replacing the filter first as it is much cheaper than replacing the fuel pump that is in the gas tank.

1992 chevy truck wanting to run hot and then gets rough idling like it is going to die out have to give it gas


So you attack the overheating problem first before you blow an engine.

Thermostat, fan clutch, water pump, blockage in cooling system or low coolant level are some of the possibilities.
Is the gauge showing hot when it is overheating ?

Heater blows cold air when the truck is idling or in stop and go traffice


a question to an answer: is your truck has any heat when you rev it 2000 rpm, or above?
have you check your coolant level? if level is low you have a small coolant leak, a water pump may be at fault, and causing air pockets in your heater core, check for leaks your self, dealer wont tell you if vehicle still under warranty.
good luck

Heater doesn,t blow hot


Have you checked your coolant? if coolant is low it can cause an air pocket in heater core and it wont pass out until rpm's increase by the extra flow of water pump. if it is full then might wanna try removing heater hoses and back flushing heater core with water might have a little trash in it restricting flow.
