If your old rad was partially blocked it would heat up faster than with a new rad.

SOURCE: over heating. no heat from heater

Hello,
You need to replace the Thermostat and gasket very quickly as you are damaging the engine when it overheats. Your thermostat is not opening at all preventing the coolant from reaching the engine, cooling it off and sending the now heated coolant into the heater core to keep you warm. The shaking may or may not go away once this is fixed.

Good Luck!

I had problems with a similar truck,a 1998 GMC diesel after checking to make sure the control cables were operating the blend door and blowing the mess of the heater core,I replace the thermostats.Still no heat turns out there was a small amount of debris collecting in the fitting for the inlet hose at the thermostat housing after removing it and blowing out the lines the heat was fine.

SOURCE: Replace Heater Core for Volvo S70 (1999)

It is your heater core. I fixed mine for $144. Ordered the new part on Ebay and followed these instructions http://www.volvospeed.com/vs_forum/index.php?showtopic=9717 It was very simple, I'm a middle age grandmother! The hardest part was cleaning up all the antifreeze. You will need a shopvac, a small one is $20 at WalMart.

1999 Dodge Grand Caravan heat is cold


There are two possibilities, one is the thermostat. Many people remove them which spoils the whole heating / cooling system. Since you changed the thermostat, I would check the heater valve on the heater which allows the hot water to circulate through the heating system.
It may be necessary to remove the heater box and flush the heater core since you talk about a lot of rust, which could have clogged the heater core and / or the pipes leading to the heater.

Heat while moving, none when I slow down or stop.


Double check your cooling system. Make sure it's topped up and that all the pipes leading from the radiator heat up during normal use, if not, you need a new thermostat.

Water dripping inside car


It sounds like you have a drain stopped up on the air conditioner system. You have to get under the vehicle prefferably with it on a lift and clean out drain.

Heater problems


If you smell coolant , there is a leak. I'm leaning towards a leak in the heater core if no fluid is visable and you smell it.
Pull the blower motor off and look inside to see if it is wet.
Have you had any issues with the radiator in the recent past? Maybe tried to correct it with stop-leak and didn't open the heater to full on hot? (maybe clogged the heater core up?)

Heater Slow to Warm Up


Probably the thermastat stuck open and not allowing water to heat up before going through the radiator.
