08 nitro blows hot air out the passenger side but cold out the drivers side! Was told half the heater core was plugged!! Could that even be possible?


If core was blocked by leaves, etc, I suppose this might be possible, but more likely there is a flapper door not working correctly, due to vacuum leak or bad actuator.

How do you change the heater core on a 2008 Dodge Nitro


before you go to the trouble to do this have a pressure test done on the coolant system to positively check that it is the core and not just a loose hose or leaking tap. Water in the cab under the dash mat can also be from a blocked drain on the ac unit and the condensate over flows and runs under the carpet.

Passenger side located behind and under the dash board . If you have never done this before get a friend that has to help can be a little aggravating doing it yourself.

2008 dodge nitro heater blowing air but not heated. How do I fix this?


Does the car heat up to operating temp. Sounds like a thermostat problem. Could even be the heater control switch. Could be the heater core.

2008 Dodge Nitro - Heater blows but not hot air, A/C works


There is casting sand in it (the heater core) and its stopped up. I just fixed an 08 nitro for nothing. Remove the heater core hose closest to the motor at the firewall. Cut off a piece of garden hose about 4 foot long and slip it over the core pipe, so you can flush it out. Now remove the other hose but leave the hose attached to the core. You will be unhooking it downstream on another pipe by the exhaust. Now get an empty milk just to catch the antifreeze and sand. Use compressed air to blow the antifreeze out. I used a 10 gallon air tank with a blow nozzle(rubber tip). Get some hot water from the sink and fill it up through the garden hose and repeat the blowing out. Reverse hoses every other time you blow it out. You will see sand in your milk jug at the bottom. It only takes a teaspoon of sand to stop it up. When you stop getting sand your done but dont forget to top the heater core back up with antifreeze. Your done for free. Chrysler wanted $1200 to fix my daughters nitro and I did it for nothing. Works like new again. Jeep is the worst about casting sand left over from the block molding process and Nitro is just another Jeep. Also, you dont need to go crazy with the air. Just hold it in the hose with a fairly firm grip and gently give it a little air till you get the feel of it. Anyone can do this job and on the hose clamps I used a pair of short channel lock pliars and be gentle while you twist the hoses off. Take your time. I spent 1 1/2 hours doing this and its new again. Have a great day friend.

Heater core in my 1999 Dodge Durango needs to be replaced and I am seeking information on how to do that.


Inspect/Replace If it is necessary to remove the heater assembly, the cooling system must be drained before removing the heater core.
When a heater core leaks, a new heater core is installed or the old one repaired.
Heater Housing
  • The heater housing is usually under the dash and must be removed to gain access to the heater core.
  • Procedures for replacing the heater core vary with the year, make, and model of car. It threfore necessary to consult the manufacturer's repair manuals for the proper procedure for replacement.
f74-01.gif The heater housing is disassembled to get to the heater core. Heater Core
  • Remove the access panels(s) or the split heater/air conditioning case to gain acess to the heater core.
  • Remove the heater coolant hoses.
  • Remove the cable and/or vacuum control lines (if equipped).
  • Remove the heater core securing brackets and/or clamps.
  • Lift the core from the case. Do not use force. Take care not to damage the fins of the heater core when removing.
  • To reinstall the heater core, reverse the removal steps.
When the heater core leaks and must be repaired or replaced, it is a very difficult and time-consuming job primarily because of the core's location deep within the firewall of the car. For this reason always leak test a replacement heater core before installation.
