It sounds like you may have an air bubble in the system. Try disconnecting the highest heater hose and see if you can burp some air out of it. Is your coolant solution strong enough so it's not freezing up? Also before you disconnect the heater hose, feel it, is it warm? If the heater hoses are warm, then the problem could be with the heater
itself.

No heat coming from the vents.


If it is a manual system--sounds like coolant low ie: air bubble in system. If it is ATC system, Check Codes, if no failure codes, coolant may be low--air bubble in system--most Durango's have air bleeders in system.

Cooling system


Your mechanic needs to figure out where the coolant is going. If it is not showing up under the car or on the floor mats in the car, then the problem may be either a leaking head gasket or in your radiator. If it is the radiator, coolant may be getting into your engine oil and this is very serious.

I do not understand what your problem is so i will try to see if i can tell you what i think you are saying, the car is leaking coolant from the radiator, if this is correct then replace radiator. or is the coolant spilling out because engine temp is overheating , if the engine is overheating this will cause the ac system not to cool down and make the cold air hot due to the condensor not cooling,

The first step is to repair any leaks and also make sure the radiator fan turns on to cool engine, when you turn on the a/c the fansss will run, if they do not then have the fans checked.

Most likely a frost plug, you may need a mirror to see it.
The head is not likely to just leak from the back, check for steam from the exhaust when hot.

My front defroster is not working at its best, however the back one is working properly. If I add any heat while trying to defrost my windows the problem get worst.


Sounds like the heater core is leaking coolant. If it is leaking it will blow steam out of defrost vents and fog the windshield. Symptoms: low coolant level in radiator, steam coming out vents when engine is warmed up, odor of anti-freeze coming out of vents, wet carpet in floorboard near heater blower motor.
If so, replace heater core.

I`m positive you have a bad head gasket.I just did one for a friend of mine that had the same problem on his Buick Rondevous.Same motor.These are good motors but they have a tendency to blow the head gaskets.It is usually the back one for the #1 cylinder.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Replace small hose and clamp, that hose come's from your transmission, goes through another tank in the radiator, to keep the transmission fluid cool, hope this was very helpful.

Antifreeze steam comeing through vents


Your heater core has a leak, it's like a small radiator that heats up and the blower motor blows air thru it to create heat in the car. It is leaking anti freeze into the heater box.

Check your oil if it is over full the water from the radiator is going into your crank case also the oil will look like a chocolate color. Yes check your radiator as well for leaks or cracks in it. Did you check the cylinder head to make sure it wasnt warped sometimes when they over heat they will warp and you will have to have the surface sanded down till its true again or level.if it is warped then its not seating down on the block all the way to make that good seal thus creating the leak into the crank case.

radiator full? Thermistat stuck open. extremely cold and too much air flow on radiator.?Does it over heat at all? Back flush heater core and radiator and replace fluids, block off part of radiator in extreme cold areas. Check controls to be sure they are opening and closing correctly
