SOURCE: 99 Dodge Ram 2500 won't heat up

Is the engine fan staying engaged? If so this will not allow you to build addequate engine temp. especially while driving.

SOURCE: 96 dodge dakota low heat from heater

Well sound slike you have covered most the things . I would try and remove the hoses from the heater core and back flush then with a garden hose sounds like the heater core might be pluged. Does it heat up more if you bring up the rpm's ?

You have a bad heater valve, operated by vaccuum or cable its on the hot water line on its way to the heater core.

SOURCE: what size socket do I need to change the oil and brakes.

The oil drain plug is a 13 mm. The tools for the brakes, a 10 mm socket for the caliper pins, a flat head screwdriver, or a meduim size prybat to get the calipers out of the mounting bracket, and a 4" C-clamp to compress the pistons into the calipers so you can put the new pads on.

SOURCE: 2002 dodge 1500 Changed radiator, thermostat, and hoses. No heat

Why was radiator replaced?Did it have heat before ? If it was plugged, the heater core may also be plugged. Try flushing it with a water hose in both directions. I dont know why the botton radiator hose would be cold, the radiator should be a uniform temp and the air coming through the radiator should be HOT, when the engine is at operating temp. What condition was the old coolant? if it was rusty, the water pump may have lower flow than normal.

Got 2000 dodge neon will start when cold run good but when motor warms up won't start


Nikki is the engine light on, are there any codes,have you had a tune up or any other work done lately.when you say it won't start when warm(do you mean engine will not turn over, or does engine turn and refuses to fire.
If I had to guess failing fuel pump, they tend not to build fuel pressure when ran a while(warmed up) and when left to cool build somewhat better pressure.

My 1998 Dodge Neon keeps running hot


Make sure your fluid is up where it should be in your rad. Make sure your hoses are not kinked and is your rad clean on the inside. You may have to flush it out.
I would change your thermostat as it could be seized shut as well. I would put a new thermostat before tearing a lot of things apart

98 grand cherokee little heat.heater hoses hot top rad warm bottom is cold collant barely luke warm


While it doesn't seem likely, if you've changed, or had the thermostat changed.... I'd say you got a faulty thermostat. I am curious as to what your temperature gauge says the temperature of the engine and coolant is.. If your gauge is showing hot, I can think of two more possibilities... the water pump isn't pumping right... and, if the water pump isn't working right, the problem can be a cracked head or block, which can cause an airlock in the coolant system. Check the coolant or radiator cap.

Thermostat no heat being generated


Can try a few things. I'm going through a similar issue on my 98 dakota right now. 1. Is the temperature gauge on the dash showing the engine getting warm If not, may be the temperature sensor. Is the electric fan working right. Does it shut off or stay running? There is a relay an fuse for that also. 2. Feel the hoses. They should be rather hot to the touch. In fact, the coolant should be about hot enough to burn you. If after running for awhile they're still cool or just barely warm, I would indeed change the thermostat. 3. If everything feels hot, you could try flushing the heater core. You'll see 2 smaller hoses about the size of a garden hose going through the firewall. They are to your heater core. It may be clogged. Basically you cut the hose and hook a garden hose up to them flushing water through it. If the hose gets stuck on the metal tubes, just cut it off. Don't grip it tight and twist with pliers. Those flimsy metal tubes will collapse then you have a bigger problem.

I have a 98 plymouth neon (DHOC) that runs hot.


Take rad cap off when cool & run it for a while with the heater on (not defrost) and top up coolant as needed in rad, about an inch or 2 from top of rad. Let it run until you see rad fan come on & off about 2 or 3 times at operating temperature. Then replace cap, top up return bottle to proper level, and try that. Probably still air in system. If that doesn't cure it, I'd look at faulty or incorrectly installed thermostat, which would be a trip to shop that installed it, if it were me.

I am having trouble with my speedometer not working occasionally and now my seat belt light is coming on sometimes too. Is this the instrument panel cluster? Or something else? 1998 Dodge Neon. Backstory is as follows: -We take very good care of it and have one dedicated mechanic. -It has only had two owners; my parents and I. -We replaced the battery 2 months ago. -Mechanic checked to make sure the speedometer sensor was working. -We have had issues with the radio for years where it will randomly turn on and off, typically brought on by a stuffed trunk OR wet weather. -The speedometer works until we hit a bump and then the needle flies up and down or sometimes just stops working all together. -Mechanic has made mention of there being some Chrysler specific battery cable that is a smaller side cable and it is not in good condition. -Currently, my problem is that I can't find an old 1998 Dodge Neon in the salvage yard because yards are doing a lot of 2002 and newer vehicles and automatically crushing the others. The meat and potatoes of my question is what direction do I go in? And what of these symptoms ties to each other? And will adding new solder to the points on the panel fix it or is it something else? I'm trying to find least expensive to most expensive options and I'm rather handy but can't drop an engine or transmission or anything so keep this in mind. My handiness ends at resoldering the pins BUT I do have a mechanic I trust, but I fear that maybe I'm not combining symptoms properly. I have the money to repair an item I KNOW is wrong but not to chicken hunt around for problems.
