SOURCE: cooling system requires burp.

Hey Tim,

I had the same problem with my 1997 Dodge ram 5.2 liter truck. I changed the water pump and it was actually that little o-ring on the heater hose that fits into the water pump on the top right side of the water pump. Also that metal piece on the return heater hose erodes after a while and rusts because it fits inside the water pump. I changed the metal part of the heater hose and the o-ring. I even changed the thermostat because it was easy to access. After I changed all of that I still heard the water running when I would rev the engine. After further investigation, I found that my bypass hose was leaking. The leak was small so I didnt see water on the ground and when the engine was hot it would just evaporate. Changing the bypass hose was more difficult than the water pump. You have remove so much just to get at a 3 to 4 inch hose. After I changed it, I filled up the radiator AGAIN and left the radiator cap off for about 10 minutes and added coolant as the level dropped. It worked, no more water running sound. Hope this helps.

It's a big job. Drain the coolant down, recover the freon in the ac system and disconnect the lines and heater hoses. Lower the steering column, remove the instrument panel assembly, remove the heater housing. Split the case halves on the housing and there you are. Usually around 500 to 700 dollars at a dealership.

SOURCE: Describe how to bypass a heater core in a 97 Dodge

Easiest way to bypass a heater core is to disconnect both inlet and outlet hoses at the engine firewall. Install a right angle hose coupling in each hose. Then install a straight piece of hose to connect the two hoses.

Ho heat new heater core is not getting water

Assuming that you have the proper amount of coolent added, check where your heater hoses connect to the engine block for rust and corrossion, this is a common area to clog up, preventing coolent flow from circulating through your heater core. If ok, check for a thermostat that is stuck open.

Heater does not get hot. Air blows out but never gets hot. Have cheked circulation to firewall and don't get any circulation coming out of radiator core. Have replaced thermostat.

Hi, are any of the heater hoses getting hot at the heater core.If both hoses or hot you have a blend door problem.If one hose is out and the other is cold you have a stopped up heater core, if both or cold you have a restriction in cooling system or a weak water pump. Have you tried to flush the cooling system. Thanks if i can help just re post.

Heater blows cold air

Heater core could be blocked up, or the blend door is stuck on the cold side of the a/c evaporator or the blend door is stuck in the cold position.

Replaced thermastate and still is not circulating and heat still cold

You could have a bad heater core. After the engine warms up, grab onto the heater core lines to see if they are warm or not. The flap that directs the air over the heater core may not be properly directing air, or in some rare cases the water pump might not be pumping.

No water circulation round heater matrix all flaps switchs an blowers working correctly.

Heater tap opening for 100% water pump circulating water properly,(look at radiator cap opening when running,just dont open when too hot as it will have pressure and spill hot water, but look to see if its flowing when you rev the engine).If you pull the 2 pipes off the heater core under hood does water flow through it,blocked)1 of these things will be the issue but will need to eliminate each one to know
