Sounds like a thermostat stuck open perhaps. cheap and easy to replace.

2001 dodge 1500 heat


Check if your rubber hoses that lead to the heater core have an inline valve. If the do, it sounds like it is not opening to allow circulation. normally they are vacuum operated

possibly the bled door is stuck open so only the cold air from a/c works when on defrost vs closing to allow heat to cycle through the system as defrost runs through the a/c system

I really can't be sure off hand, but what you wrote looks like the control valves are sticking(these flaps allow air to go different directions at the vents). its located at the heater core(towards the left side of the heater core) under the plastic just under the dash. you can manually move them, encase they are stuck, they do stick sometimes. while checking the vent doors, make sure your vacuum lines are connected. also check to make sure your vent hoses are tight. I hope this helps

My heater is not working in my 2001 honda civic. Is it my thermostat?


Does the heater blow cold air from the vents or do you mean the there is no airflow from the vents? cold air from the dash vents when the heater control valve is set fully hot could be an air pocket in the cooling system. The radiator sits slightly lower than the engine causing air pockets to get trapped in the engine when you replace the coolant. you'll have to purge the cooling system to restore flow to the heater core. No airflow (blower motor inop) this could be a bad blower motor transistor. pin test the blower motor circuit.

There is no heat blowing ou of the vens on my van


The water must be able to circulate and there are three main things to stop this from happening.Heater core blockage,thermostat and water pump.
After checking those you must look at the controls under the dash to see if a dampener door is remaining closed.The doors will shut off the heater core from air circulation when using the air conditioning and vice versa. After starting the van switch the controls for temperature from cold to hot and listen for the door to open and close.That's where I would start.Also you have a Heater Control Valve that shuts off all hot water from entering your heater core.If this valve is closed you would get no to very little heat.It's located in the heater hose from the intake to your heater core.

2001 Dodge Caravan heater blows cold air when stopped


Have you checked the coolant level? What you describe is exactly what happens if the coolant level is low. When stopped at idle, hot coolant is not circulating through the heater core, so no heat. As the engine increases in rpm's when you pull away from the light, the water pump is spinning quicker, and some coolant is making it to the heater core. So check the level, and if it is low, keep an eye on it to see if it drops again. That of course indicates a leak somewhere. Get it fixed, as overheating the engine leads to costly repairs and worse case a new engine. Let me know how you make out with this.

Started out with cold air coming out the vents


I'm no 'expert' but it sounds like possibly 2 different problems. Your heat comes from warm/hot coolant circulating through the heater core, and the fan blowing air through/over it. If your thermostat is not opening the coolant won't circulate. Thermostat is a not too difficult or costly starting place. No air flow leads me to think you have a blower motor issue, perhaps start with the fuse. Hope this helps.

Heat Problem 2001 Dodge Caravan Se 4cyl 2.4L


the problem with no heat is caused by air temperature control blend door motor in the dash air ducting, this door moves in different positions to allow air over the heater core or to allow air over the AC evaporator core or a mix or blend of the 2 air streams to obtain the desired outlet temp.. The bad news is the dash must come out to replace this actuator.
