97 Dakota 3.9 Vents let hot air into the cab like the heat is on even when the heat is set to off and the temps turned to cool.


There are flaps called blend doors, they can be ether electronic or manual ( cable operated) and sometimes vacuum, they are the ones responsible for making the HV/AC blow cold or hot air. Just go under dash and adjust the temperature cold/hot and listen carefully for the blend door to move and or an actuator to close or open.. Best thing is just to take out actuator and adjust it manually...
And you probably have a bad thermostat thats why the truck wont reach operating temperature. Previous owner may have taken it out to try to hide and overheating problem. Good luck ??

hi the temp gauge should sit in the lower quarter of the gauge, it has to be a faulty water temp sensor as anything else would cause it to over heat badly

Hi,

The overheating and lack of cabin heat both point to a failed engine thermostat which would be stuck closed. At the warm up stage, the coolant stays in the engine block to bring the engine to efficient operating temperature, then it opens and circulates the coolant through the radiator and heat core. If the thermostat is stuck closed, the engine will overheat, and coolant will never reach the heater core, and you will not get cabin heat.

Blinking oil light at idle which goes away during driving could be a low oil level, but may also be a drop in oil pressue. You could have a clogged oil fliter (at best) pickup tube, or a failing oil pump.

your thermostat is stuck open ive changed a few of them and it is very labor intensive the part is like 20 bucks but the front of the car has to be removed to change it the fastest i can do it is 4 hours the first one i changed took 7 hours. thats why the dealership wants so much they do already know whats wrong its a common problem.
