How hot is the engine in degrees F? With a fully warmed engine are the heater hoses, hot? Check coolant flow through the heater core. If no coolant flow through the heater or engine, I'd have to check water pump.

Sometimes when the cooling system is opened, it may get air in the system, your temp gage may be reacting to air in the system?

    I'm not sure of the f degree but it took me 5 minutes to get home and the temp needle was 1/4 to almost hitting the red line.

    How long does it usually take you to get home? Are you saying the vehicle went into limp mode? If so, I wouldn't drive it till you figure out the issue. Make sure you have coolant circulation through the engine. Check for applicable trouble codes. To check codes, yourself, at the least, you need an obd2 code reader.

2006 dodge grand caravan, I replaced the radiator and thermostat and I still have no heat but the van get hot when I drive it


To do these replacements all of your antifreeze was emptied from the car. When system was refilled an air pocket developed in your system. This air pocket will have to be bled out. Take it back to where the work was done, have them bleed the system. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

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.

I have a '03 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport AWD that the heater only blow hot air when going down the road. Van has a new radiator and new thermostat. Sometimes the blower will not kick on for a few


If the problem is a lack of air flow from the vents, and you suspect the blower motor is not running at times, you would need to test the blower relay and blower motor for power and ground when it is not working.

What causes an engine to get hot


Yes a restricted converter can cause an engine to over heat because it can't breath correctly so it make the engine work harder . Cooling fans not working is one of the most common causes for 93 to 95 dodge caravans over heating . their is a cooling fan control mddule located on the inside of the frame rail next to the radiator on the drivers side of the van that goes bad very often . Thermostat sticking is another fault that can cause over heating

I have a dodge grand caravan 2006 with trouble codes p0126 and p0406 what does that mean? and how can I fix it?


Hi, sorry I don't have a manual for your van but here is some general information for these codes.

P0126 Insufficient Coolant Temperature for Stable Operation:

basically, the engine is running cool. Check your thermostat to see if it's closing properly. If it is closed when removed, you may want to get a higher temp thermostat. The thermostat is usually in a housing bolted to the engine at the end of the upper radiator hose.


P0406 Exhaust Gas Recirculation Sensor A Circuit High:

This indicates the EGR position sensor signal is out of range. The problem could be the wiring or the sensor itself. Check the wiring first. If it looks good, consider replacing the sensor. I think in your van the sensor may be integrated into the EGR valve itself.

While engine running, does the air feel warm to hot blowing through the radiator, if it does water is circulading, if it feels cold, replace thermostat.

My dodge caravan 2001 is giving heating troubles. Will blow some hot air and then after some time, starts blowing cold air.


Ya I would almost guarantee you that the radiator is shot.
You will need a new one.
Cost 800.00 to 1100.00 to get a mechanic to install.
You can buy one your self for about 300.00.
Do it yourself.
to test if that's the problem try this.
Fill the radiator all the way to the top with coolant
Run the van till its warm check hoses to feel for heat.
If its all hot and good..then id say you got awhile before you will need a radiator.
What will happen next is your van will start to over heat when you least expect it to.
Good luck
