Sounds like the thermastat or the water pump id about right. You could also have a collapsed hose, Can check this by squezzing the hoses and see if soft. If so i would replace . good luck to you.

Thermostat and engine heat seem fine, seems that heat knob, gears and cable are all working fine, but have practically no heat from heater.....96 Dodge Ram 1500 4 x 4. No problems with ducts switching...


Hello. First, does the fan speed work correctly? When you put it in the high possition does the air come out faster?, if so, raise the hood, look back on the firewall, ( behind the motor ), and locate 2 hoses that are about 1 1/4 inch in diameter that both hook up to pipes on the firewall. This is your inlet, and outlet for your heater core. I suspect you will find that these hoses have been joined together to bypass the heater core. Often when a heater core is leaking people don't have the money to replace the heater core, they generally cost $300 to $400 and sometimes more, then you have to pay the labor, in some cases, to remove about half of the dash to get to the heater core. This repair can be expensive indeed, so, often people just bypass the heater core by joining the inlet and outlet hoses of the core directly together skipping the core altogether.
Good luck!

The heater is blowing cold air


heater control valve not allowing radiator water to flow through the heater core where the heater blower motor blows the heat that radiates off the heater core into the vehicle cheap fix or you can bypass yourself by replacing valve with piece of 3/4 copper pipe and 2 hose clamps

My 1998 cavalier overheated in the spring.Thermostat, hoses, radiator all checked out, Mechanics bypassed the heater core to see if problem stopped. It did. Thought it over because of cost, and finally...


Could be the water pump itself. If the impeller blades have worn out then it won't push enough water through. Possible head gasket too, that can be tested at a shop. Possible clogged radiator, if the heater core was clogged, more then likely the radiator is too.

1998 Ford Taurus, heater won't blow hot air through any vent including defrost, coolant level is okay, no heat no matter how long car is run, car doesn't overheat, can't get warm air even if run at air...


common problem is the water resivor cracks up at the bottom... it appears that your water level is fine because the car doesnt over heat but i am willing to bet that resivor doesnt have water to the top. The radiator will hold just enough water to keep it cool. I replaced mine 3 times the sulution is doing to sound weird but go to the junk yard and get one off a murcury sable. dont know why but the sables res doesnt crack like that

My heater not working, i replaced thermostat and radiator hoses, had radiator flushed and rodded, and still no heat. What is wrong?


Too much blockage in heater hoses or heater core.
Bypass valve may be stuck on "bypass" .

1. Remove bypass "Tees", but don't discard.
Replace with straight-through hose fittings.
The core may start leaking under the water pressure since there is no bypass hose.

Once the heater starts working, put Tees back in place. You need bypass protection or the engine will overheat.

When you bypass the heater core the path for the water to go through the core is gone. Correct?, you have connected to engine water line out to the engine water input? thus bypassing the heater core........


No, you just won't have water flow through the heater core, Coolant flows through the engine through the lower radiator hose as the water pump sucks it out of the radiator and pushes it through the engine. It then flows out the top radiator hose when the thermostat opens. It then flows into the radiator to cool off.

Is your heater core leaking?

I am having trouble with my speedometer not working occasionally and now my seat belt light is coming on sometimes too. Is this the instrument panel cluster? Or something else? 1998 Dodge Neon. Backstory is as follows: -We take very good care of it and have one dedicated mechanic. -It has only had two owners; my parents and I. -We replaced the battery 2 months ago. -Mechanic checked to make sure the speedometer sensor was working. -We have had issues with the radio for years where it will randomly turn on and off, typically brought on by a stuffed trunk OR wet weather. -The speedometer works until we hit a bump and then the needle flies up and down or sometimes just stops working all together. -Mechanic has made mention of there being some Chrysler specific battery cable that is a smaller side cable and it is not in good condition. -Currently, my problem is that I can't find an old 1998 Dodge Neon in the salvage yard because yards are doing a lot of 2002 and newer vehicles and automatically crushing the others. The meat and potatoes of my question is what direction do I go in? And what of these symptoms ties to each other? And will adding new solder to the points on the panel fix it or is it something else? I'm trying to find least expensive to most expensive options and I'm rather handy but can't drop an engine or transmission or anything so keep this in mind. My handiness ends at resoldering the pins BUT I do have a mechanic I trust, but I fear that maybe I'm not combining symptoms properly. I have the money to repair an item I KNOW is wrong but not to chicken hunt around for problems.
