When the heater fails to get hot, it is generally a sign that you may have a low coolant level. Since you are also overheating, there is a good chance that the cooling system is low, due to a leak, and this in turn afects the heater. If you haven't already, check the level in the radiator and top it up as needed with a 50/50 mix of water and antifreeze.

What you need to do is have the cooling system pressure tested to find the source of your leak and then once the leak is repaired it will fix both of your issues.

May be a plugged heater core. OR Someone removed your thermostat to cure you overheating problem. Remove heater hoses , (in and out hoses) leading to and from heater core and try to blow through it. DO NOT clean out using more than 16 p.s.i. as this will burst you heater core.Also check to be sure heater flap is opering to let heated air into cab.

Where is the thermostat located at on a 1998 Dodge Dakota? And the heater is not heating the compartment.


Follow the upper radiator hose from the radiator to the motor. There should be two bolts holding the hose-to-block outlet in place. The thermostat is directly below this in the intake manifold.
Before you take it all apart, check your radiator coolant level. If it's really low, there will be no flow of warm coolant to the heater core and you wont' be getting heat in the cab. Fill to the recommended level and recheck your heater...

Not getting much heat from the heater.


have u checked the heater core inlet and outlet hose's are the hot, one hot side one cool indicates a plugged up core. if that is ok u may have a stuck air temperature control blend door in the dash air distribution system, also make sure your engine reaches at least 180 deg F.
