If you have a knock or clicking noise behind the radio, it is the blend motor. The blend door is spring loaded and the gears in the blend motor are "stripped". The door is spring loaded so that the door is closed to the heater core. About 2 hours to replace and a lot of bending and stretching. You don't have to remove the dash, but all of the trim, radio, and controls will need to come out.

I would have your head gaskets checked for leaks into cooling system and if ok try changing your water pump.

SOURCE: Prizm overheats, heater core leaks, no heat

You can bypass the core or fix it that's up to you but I would change or remove the thermostat first. If it still overheats then start looking at the water pump and radiator. Hope this helps. Good luck.

SOURCE: Dodge 2002 Grand Caravan V6 3.3 engine overheating/no cabin heat.

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.

My Van is over heating and I have no heat coming through the front or back vents?


This is the primary cause of engine overheating. Possible leak points include hoses, the radiator, water pump, thermostat housing, heater core, head gasket, freeze plugs, automatic transmission oil cooler, cylinder heads and block. ... A leak-free system should hold pressure for at least one minute.

Can a bad heater core (apparent small leak) cause overheating?


Yes. The engines coolant goes thru the heater core to provide heat. If it leaks out enough coolant it can result in overheating.

1998 Chrysler voyager van water leaking form heater core. once water is added in to radiator makes no difference using antifreeze


As long as the coolant is full, You won't have problems with heat. Check the rest of the system for leaks. Can't find a leak and still gets low. 2 possibilities. Heater core is leaking or head gasket is leaking. I would lean towards the heater core because of the water inside.

No heat coming out and van overheating


It could be the thermostat or the water pump. Even if your heater core were plugged, the engine would not overheat from it, you would just have no heat. And if the thermostat were stuck closed, but the heater core was good, you would still get heat from heater while the engine was overheating. So it kind of points toward the water pump, unless neglect had allowed both the heater core to plug and the thermostat to stick closed. I mean neglect from not regularly changing the coolant every two years about.
Overheating can be as simple as a low coolant level, so you should check that, and check for leaks.
Before you go for the cost to replace the water pump, you should first have the system pressure tested, or have a compression test done to check the internal condition of the engine and to make sure you don't have a blown head gasket. Good luck.

Engine overheating


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Few things to look at to resolve the overheating problem. Here are the following:

- Radiator is clogged
- Radiator fan blower is weak
- Water pump is worn out which may result failure on coolant cycle
- Cracked cylinder head

These must be replaced if found out faulty or damaged. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Cant stop a 201venture van from over heating the heater works the van dont run hot but wen the heater dont heat the motor runs hot


When your not feeling heat coming from the heater it usually means that the coolant level is too low in the radiator. It sounds like you have a coolant leak somewhere which is causing your overheating problem. Fill your radiator and let the engine run for about a half hour with the radiator cap on tight. Then turn off the engine and check for any leaks under the van. If you don't see any leaks under the van then see if the carpeting is wet on the passenger side of the vehicle. If the carpet is wet and it smells like anti-freeze you have a heater core that is leaking. I hope this helps you. :)

My mpv is overheating and not pttin out any heat in the cab. I replaced the stat and the problem remains...what is the solution to this...btw, the h2o pump isn't leaking either..


Are there clogs in the system that may be fixed by flushing and filling with coolant?

Do both tubes leading to the heater core get hot when the engine is hot?

If not, then the heater core is plugged up.

Otherwise, if the two tubes are hot leading to the heater core, the blend door is not opening.

Also, is the radiator's cooling fan operating when it gets hot?

These are a few questions to ask.

Good luck on this repair.

Overheating problem


sounds like your heater core has gone bad!! Do you smell antifreeze when you run the heater??

Smoke or steam coming from vents, not overheating, codes read 12 and 43.


I think it probably is the heater core leaking.As the water eats up to boiling point small cracks will allow steam to escape. Probably smells like coolant.
