Most likely a thermostat issue but it could need a back flush of the radiator system or a problem with the oil circulation. Check your radiator level, replace the Thermostat and make sure your oil is at the proper level. Also, make sure your fans are working correctly. When the motor is off see if the fan moves freely. That will tell you if the clutch is engaging correctly when the vehicle is moving. it it isn't then you are actually putting a larger strain on your motor when driving than the cooling system was designed to cool.

2002 dodge intrepid the heat blows but doesn't get hot! Had the thermostat replaced but still no heat. What would be the problem?


either a heat switch is not switching heat to the compartment or else the thermostat in the cooling system is defective. when it is not open it does not let hot water to the internal heating system, has your engine been overheating or running hot? also as this would be a symtom.

I have a 2001 Dodge Intrepid SE and the shifter cable seems like its hung up. Cant put car into any gear at all.


Carolinagr13,

I had the same issue and after looking into different options, we found that the transmission cable or also called linkage was extremely rusted. I was able to see it; due to the protective hose was worn out and torn. I tried buying this part at auto zone well, they don't carry this part and referred me the dealership. Now, I really couldn't afford to purchase it from there, so I bought it at a pick-a-part and it only cost me less then $20.00 with a 30 warranty. I tried loading a picture and a home video, but wasn't able to. Good luck. :-)

I have a 2003 Dodge Intriped SE. It is over heating and the heater does not blow hot air in the moring after the car is warmed up.


You likely have low coolant causing a large air pocket. This will cause the sensor to pick up the hot steam but the lack of flow through the heater core will not heat up the interior.

I have a Dodge Intrepid SE 2001 with a 2.7 eng. I want to know what codes P351, P352, P353, P356 mean.


I'm getting those codes too. They all have to do with your ignition coils. #'s 1, 2, 3, and 6. My book says that "Peak primary circuit current not achieved with maximum dwell time". I'd check the spark plugs to see if they are really dirty. But if you are getting any cam or crank sensor codes that could be the problem too.

94 dodge intrepid blows kinda warm but not very warm what do I do? We changed the thermostat


Since your blower is working and it is a heat issue,thats where we'll start,First thing is have you checked the coolant level in the radiator when engine is cold,make sure it is filled to top,next verify you have coolant in reserve ,Start your van and get it up to normal operation temperature,If your heat gauge on the dash works correctly it should be 190 degrees,Now lift the hood and locate the two heater hoses going into the heater assembly at the fire wall,Both hoses should be hot to hold on to,if both are hot and no heat inside your problem will be the blend air door in heater assembly.
if neither hose is that hot you need to replace the thermostat in the engine to get it up to 195 degrees.
if one hose is hot and one is luke warm then the heater core is blocked and to blame. hope this helps you.
