I would suggest replacing the blower motor resistor. When this component fails the blower will only work on one spped or none. This is a very common issue with all automotive models

SOURCE: Low heat from my 2001 Passat heater

There are known problems with this vehicle's heater core not getting enough coolant flowing through it to blow hot air.
1) Even if the coolant looks good, there are problems with the heater core plugging up. One solution is to use a heavy duty cleaner (CLR pipe cleaner) to back flush the heater core. To know if the heater core is plugged up, disconnect the 2 heater hoses at the heater core and somehow connect a hose to one end of the core. Try to flow water through, it doesn't have to be high pressure, and there should be a steady stream. If not, try to get the cleaner directly into the heater core and let it soak. Then back flush it and a lot of scale should be seen coming out.

2) The other problem is that since the heater core is the highest point in the cooling system air tends to get trapped in it. This should only happen if the coolant goes low or someone has opened the system to service it. There are a number of ways to bleed the system (vacuum bleed, pressure bleed). One of the hoses should have a small hole in it for bleeding air, pull that hose back just enough so the hole allows coolant to flow out of it. Then accelerate the engine and get a good flow coming out, when no more air bubbles are present, there should be good heat.

3)I've heard of bad water pumps with low flow causing issues as well as an aux. water pump not fuctioning correctly leading to poor heat output from the heater core. Someone should confirm this as I cannot get much information on the aux water pump(electronic pump by the alternator that is supposed to run after the car is shut off).

Hope this helps.

Make sure your fan is working properly. When you turn on the heater you are forcing the fan to cool the radiator. It may not be turning on automatically when it is supposed to. Let us know if this helps..

My 2004 Chrysler Sebring just started overheating. I started to notice I wasn't getting any heat, not sure if the two are connected. Then the gauge needle starts to adjust from middle to extremely hot. ...


first make sure you don't have white smoke coming out of tail pipe then check the radiator if it is cold after warmed up then you could go to the two main hose coming from the radiator be careful one could be hot follow the cold one ie water pump thermostat head gasket are as easy as a radiator cap good luck

I know how to find tdc on car but i am not sure on how to put distributor back. I turned engine over and forgot to mark rotor, what should it be pointing at on the cap. Thank you, Joe


As the distributer is being slid in, it will rotate some. You want to slide it in and as it rotates you want to align the rotor to where the number 1 spark plug wire will go. I don't know if you have the 4 or 6 cylinder:

I own a Chrysler Sebring JXI 2.o liter 1999 and thermostat is bad


Vickie I strongly suggest you pick up a $20 repair manual at your local parts store. NEVER work on a cooling system when its hot. A cheap tool set from a very large retail store should have the metric tools required for the job. The book will have lots of pics & easy to follow instructions. Don't get frustrated, get informed. I worked professionally on cars for 20 years & I still start alot of jobs just like that
