First time posting here, from what I have seen this site is great, very informative and helpful.
I have a 2003 Dodge 1500 3.7 Ltr. I have only owned it since May 2009.
When I bought it it only had 30,000 miles on it, looking forward to along term relationship with the truck.
I have notice since winter when I start the truck and let it warm up, it will not start to blow heat until I rev it up. It blows a little warm but not hot. even if it idles for 10 - 15 minutes. I was wondering if this was normal? I was thinking maybe thermostat problem, not sure.
A friend of mine says "it might be because of the low idle RPM, its the way those trucks are" Does not sound right to me.
Well I think I found out why the fluid was low. The bottom sqeeze type hose clamp was split. I do not know why I never found a leak on the driveway. From the rust on the break it has been that way for a while. Laying out in the snowy driveway Sunday morning sucked, but I finally was able to cut off the old clamp with a Dremal and replaced the clamp. Time will tell... again
