If you heard it in the van, could be hose or a/c evaporator, you will have to remove panel to chack, if you heard under the van, it's going to be a hose.

My 1999 dodge caravan is still overheating. I have already replaced the thermostat and the water pump, also there is no heat. please help me someone!


Hi there.
Well you can either have a problem with either radiator outer {dust/dirt in outer core of radiator or clogged up inside were water goes, or soft hoses,blowen head gasket plus a few others ,but first go to garage to were you blow up your tyres and use the air hose and blow out the radiator core where the air goes in, 2 drain out radiator water and then refill with water at 1 ltr at a time and then check your info car book and find how much water the radiator takes ,if it dosent take all the ltrs then the radiator is blocked inside.
if engine runs rough missing etc then get your Head gasket checked out.
When you say no heat is that with heat on gauge or no heat from heater, as it could be heater blockage same as radiator core. So let me know how you get on.

Heater wont heat on 1997 e350


Not completely sure what symptoms are but you may have a partially plugged heater core. A reverse flush through the heater core may do the trick. There will be two hoses going to the heater core, one in and one out. Sometimes these heater cores are easy to replace, sometimes it's a major job. I am not familiar with the e350. There is a danger of creating a leak in a reverse flush if rust or whatever is sealing a leak.

Rear heater core line leaking, can I fix w/ rubber hose and clamps? The leak is right below drivers side door. There are four lines that run to rear heater core but only one is leaking.


yeah hose and clamps are the cheap easy way to go there, or if your lucky, the leak is right at the spot where the hose meets the metal and you can just cut the end off and put it back with the old clamp

Climate controls


Car manufacturers use the defrost mode as a default for safety reasons. Being they want you to be able to defrost the windshield no matter what. So when something goes wrong the system automatically goes to the defrost mode. You most likely don't have the vacuum hose connected under the dash at the climate control assy. Or if this vehicle doesn't use the vacuum hose style you may have not plugged in one of the connectors under the dash or behind the climate control assy. Good luck.
