Question about Dodge Nitro
Engine temp good but no heat.removed hoses from heater core and flushed core. had great heat for 1 week then nothing again. flushed core again had heat for 2 days then nothing again. engine overheated today and no heat. flushed core again and no heat this time. possible trapped air pocket?
Possible, with rad cap off, let vehicle idle until coolant fan comes on then shut vehicle off for 30 minute cool down. Top up rad, install cap and drive and recheck heater operation and any overheating.

Replace the bad radiator hose first. Second- get you special formulated anti-freeze dye from the auto store and pour it into the radiator. Third- make sure you got all the air pockets out of your system, cause the coolant system won't work with air pockets in it. Fourth- Check for leaks by looking for the colored dye. If it's not the radiator hose, then could possibly be a pin hole in your radiator. Would suggest replacing all the radiator hoses at the same time while you got the coolant system disconnected, cause you don't want to have to come back and replace another hose in a few months.

There is several ways to see. 1. It could still be the heater core, try blowing air in to IN house, if it comes out the OUT hose strong, its not that. 2. It is posible there is an a pocket in the system. Try bleeding the air hose, that could be it. 3. Take the glove box out, disconnect the air bag CAREFULLY! Start the car, And turn the heat all the way up, then all the way down. U should see a arm move back and forth. MAke sure it goes ALL the way shut, and open. 4. It could be that the doors in the dash don't work. I'm not sure how to do this. Hope the other work!!

Sounds like you have air trapped in the heater core when you flushed the heater core. loosen the upper most heater core hose and run the engine untill coolant seeps out. Wait until the coolant has reached running temperature.
