2000 Dodge Durango. Last night while driving home. I noticed white smoke coming from my vents, this caused the windows to cloud up the defroster did not clear the windows.


it sounds like your haeter core has sprung a leak. you can by-pass it by removing your heater hoses and conecting them together with a splice pipe till you can replace the heater core, but you will need to do so the by pass or heater core replacement soon or your car will start to overheat.

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.

Fog coming from deforst leaving greasy film on window


it sounds like your heater core is leaking. Check to see if your coolant level is low. A radiator pressure test will show a leak. coolant may be dripping down from the heater air box drain hose. Replacement of the heater core is expensive. you can bypass the heater core, to keep you on the road, by looping one of the heater hoses back to the engine....but you will have no heat. Here are a couple of sites for reference;

Heater core leak hoe do I fix


You will have to remove console, and all the venting and cover to heater core. Then go underneath the vehicle and disconnect both coolant hoses. Then remove heater core. You can go to autozone.com and register for full free online repair manual for your durango with everything you could need.

1999 dodge durango heater core


It's a big job. Drain the coolant down, recover the freon in the ac system and disconnect the lines and heater hoses. Lower the steering column, remove the instrument panel assembly, remove the heater housing. Split the case halves on the housing and there you are. Usually around 500 to 700 dollars at a dealership.

1999 Dodge durango heating sucks and leaking coolant now


Smelling antifreeze indicates to me you have a crack in the heater core. Most are made of plastic. This shows yours is metal. I guessed on 2WD or 4WD and size of engine.

Unlikely to be frost plugs unless you ran the system without antifreeze and the block partially froze. When they freeze fully, the plug pops and out and you lose all the coolant when it thaws.

Finally, this is a common problem with the Durango! As my learned colleague says, replace the thermostat as it needs to be fully open to let water flow well to the heater core.

Make sure you chek out the coolent level and if the level is fine, the next step to go is the heater core. it should be one of these 2 solutions!!
