Look for a hose on the top of the engine at the end there will be a small round housing. . It should be right at the top of the engine. The thermostat is in there.

SOURCE: heater does not blow hot air , only warm

it's possible that you have an air bubble in the cooling system and it will need bled. also possible that the heater core has a partial blockage.

SOURCE: no heat I have changed thermostat,blow air thougt

I had this exact problem. Suspect a clogged heater core and you will probably have to replace it. Make sure you have the valve that opens the heater that works. You can remove it and see if it works. The valve is a vacuum valve that is connected within 10 inches of the 2 firewall heater hoses.

If the valve opens and stay opens and passes water well then disconnect the output of the heater and verify the that water flows well and you may be ok with the heater core being ok.
I know you do not like to hear but with all these tests, you should replace the heater core in the cab. It is a pain to remove but doable.

Location of thermostat in Dodge Dakota 2000 4x4, 6cylinder, 3.9


The thermostat is located on the rightside of the truck as viewed from the drivers seat. Follow the upper rad hose it connects to the thermostat housing. A good way to check if the thermostat is stuck is when the motor running and fully warmed up squeeze the hoses if it is hard then the thermostat is stuck. Another way is with the motor hot feel if the upper rad hose is hot; if it's not then your thermostat is stuck. Hope this helps.

Why heater only warm


Either your thermostat is broken and jammed open (this means the water in the heater matrix will take forever to get hot) or you have an air-lock in the heater matrix. To check the thermostat, the engine should get too hot to touch before the radiator gets even warm. If they all get warm together, your thermostat is faulty. To bleed the heater matrix, uncouple the higher of the two hoses from the bulkhead an top up the water resevoir until you get flow from the loosened heater hose.

Heater not getting hot but blower is working


Without more information, I can tell you that you have a problem with your heater core. Check coolant levels and make sure you aren't low on coolant. If that isn't an issue, make sure your heater core isn't bypassed. In Texas, I see them bypassed instead of repaired because it hardly ever gets cold here. You could also have a dirty heater core that isn't allowing the heat transfer. The only other thing it could be is an issue with the temperature blend door/actuator. If it isn't opening properly to allow the warm air from the heater core to enter the ventilation system, you won't get hot air.

Was not getting warm air in the cabin so i assumed it must be the thermostat, replaced it - still no heat, thought maybe from replacing thermo i may need to get any air that might be traped in the system....


On most cars (all that I know of) the heater works by directing the hot water from the engine through a small radiator in the cabin and blowing air across it with a fan. If you hear and feel the fan blowing air then it could be that the valve that diverts the hot water to the small radiator is bad and no hot water is being circulated thus no warm air. In order to fix that you would have to locate the valve and replace it- many times they are in hard to reach places.
hope this helps

Heater only blows warm air.


The hoses from your heater core should be very hot to the touch. Check the hoses going to the core from the water pump. It should be very hot. The return hose should also be very hot. Now check the hoses going to the core. If they are not the same temp, then your heater control valve is not working correctly or the vacuum is not working. At any rate, locate the vacuum line going to the heater valve. Remove the silver bar on the valve from the plastic plunger arm. You will have heat all the time now if it was only a vacuum problem. You can fix it later when it's warmer out. BTW a 200* thermostat will make your heater even hotter.
