This sounds like a typical Ram radiator problem. Im willing to bet it does'nt overheat quick. It does it slowly. Even while at highway speeds. If so change the radiator.

I have a 1997 dodge ram 1500 the heater does not blow hot air but the inlet hose to the heater core is hot on the inlet and outlet side thermostat heats up to 200 degrees


If both heater hoses are warm/hot,look under the dash at the heater core area and look for a air blender door lever.it may be disconnected .Or try to open it manually which should allow the air flowing through the hot heater core to enter the vehicle.

If only one hose is hot the heater core may be plugged internally.disconnect the heater hoses and back flush the heater back and forth with a garden hose until you get a unrestricted flow of water.

When disconnecting any heater hoses just clamp them off so you do not have to drain the complete system while working on "just" the heater.

Lowheater (temp) output


It could be your blend door or not enough flow through your heater core. Try removing the heater hoses at the heater core and flushing both directions with a garden hose!

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.

I have a 2002 dodge ram 1500 pickup w. hwat issues


is this a problem w/ the interior vents? maybe stuck venting in outside air rather than from the heater box? did the heat only stop working after the radiator/hose install? if so, then you probably have a big air pocket stuck in the heater core.
