Question about 2004 Dodge Intrepid

1 Answer

A/c stops blowing cool air after 90 minutes to 2 hours driving

A/c on 2004 dodge intrepid. evaporator was replaced last year. now, i've noticed while driving on interstate at a steady speed, somewhere in 90 minutes to 2 hours the a/c stops blowing out cold air. i've been told it might be the clutch or a high/low pressure problem but everything else about the system is fine. i've done temperature readings in the a/c ducts using dealer's temp probe. on a 5 hour drive, it started putting out cold air at 46 degrees. as the drive continued, we took temp readings every 15 minutes. the temp just kept going up and up and about 2 hours in, the air coming out of the duct was 69. it never went back down. in fact, it went up to 71 degrees and stayed at 70-71 degrees the rest of the 3 hours of that 5 hour drive. the dodge service department says this is normal. it didn't do this the first few years i had the car. service department put in a co-pilot monitor and i drove with that in the car and the service department says they cannot find anything wrong.
they have said that when the weather is 90 degrees or hotter that's the best the a/c can do--is put out a temp of 70 degrees? funny, i've driven rental cars in phoenix and through the desert of arizona in mid-summer with temps over 100 and never sweated like i have in this intrepid.

If this was happening to me.... I'd goto an airconditioning re-gas centre and get them to check for gas leaks. In my old commodore the Evaporator Core was leaking and causing some of the issues you have mentioned.

2004 Dodge Intrepid heater problem


This sounds like your automatic climate control is starting to malfunction. Check to make sure your coolant is full, and temp is not fluctuating, and when your vehicle is warmed up, try using the low setting and feel for air temp. Is it warmer than if you turn it up? When at idle the vehicle is not producing heat the same as if you are driving, putting load on your engine and more air/fuel combustion means more heat, which is why you can feel heat while driving. Ideally you should feel heat as soon as the engine is warming up, getting hotter as it reaches peak temp of 190-210 degrees. You can try to make sure your water control valve is not blocked, and all electrical connections are secure. This will be located close to your firewall and connected to the coolant tubes that run into your firewall to your heater-core. Also use recirc (setting)to try to summon as much heat as possible, however ultimately, you may need to take you vehicle in for service. If it only warms when driving defrost will be an issue. Good luck.

99 Dodge Intrepid only have heat when driving


what does your thermostat say? is it reading in the cool range or in the normal running temperature range?

if its reading cool..... your thermostat needs to be replaced.

does the fan blow well? or does it only blow while moving?

if the fan doesnt blow well/ not at all, or seems to blow better when driving then its either a bad fan or/and wiring problems to the fan

some cars have vacuum activated valve that turn on and off the heater. if you have a leak in the vacuum line under your dash it could be causing the valve to only open half way. making it not work as well..

Have had two intrepids that each lasted to almost 200000 miles - even with teenagers driving the last few years. The gear shifting thing came up on both of them. It has always been hit or miss as to when this happens. the only solutions we used were add transmission fluid, if necessary, and otherwise change the trans fluid if its been 50,000 miles since the last change. Also, letting it sit a few minutes (to cool?) does make a difference.
