If there are no leaks under the car, check the tailpipe for excessive moisture/steam. You may have a blown head gasket. Let us know if you have more questions.

Double check the thermostat and make sure the water pump is doing its job. To check the thermostat, simply take it out and reassemble the housing with out the unit. Run the engine and hopefully it will get warm to hot. If not check the pump.

I have a '03 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport AWD that the heater only blow hot air when going down the road. Van has a new radiator and new thermostat. Sometimes the blower will not kick on for a few


If the problem is a lack of air flow from the vents, and you suspect the blower motor is not running at times, you would need to test the blower relay and blower motor for power and ground when it is not working.

My 1997 Dodge Neon heats up sometimes, but there is not any pattern to it, as in sometimes it is hot out, sometimes cool, sometimes I am in town going slow and stopping and starting, and sometimes on the...


My neon would be bubbling in the resevoir when I stoped, I replaced the radiater, thermostate, hoses,
and it was still doing it? Finaly replaced the radiater cap and that solved the problem! Also you could have air in the system too? here is how to purge your system. Make sure your car is cooled down so you won't get burned, take off you radiater cap, Drain your antifreeze out of your radiater at the cockpit,about a gallon, close your cockpit, Jack the front end of your car up high so the radiater is higher than the thermostate housing, have a funnel ready to pour your antifreeze back in at the radiater cap throat, roll your windows down, and turn you heater on high! start your engine and slowly pour you
antifreeze back in untill full, when you start seeing it start to come out and can't get anymore in put your new radiater cap on, let the car run for 20 minutes with heater on high, after your fans kick on and stop, when engine is warmed up, turn your car off. Lower your car and check to make sure resivoir is at full mark. I hope this helps it worked for me!

How do i replace the radiator in my 2000 dodge caravan? (3.3 L)


make sure the vehicle is cool 1st remove the front plate that holds it all down then put a large pan under the vehicle to catch the antifreeze a second pan is also down there to catch extra fluid ,remove the bottom hose to the radiator and allow the 2nd pan catch the remaining fluid as the block will let some out remove both transmission lines going into the radiator as well ,be sure to use a separate pan for this if reusing antifreeze a line wrench works best for this then remove the upper hose you may need to remove the hood itself and disconnect any lines or wires to it then pop out the old radiator and reverse procedure for installation
