    2013 Dodge Ram Forum
    I have a 2013 1500 5.7L with 140000 miles having a few issues with coolant/heater and I think they are related. First noticed that when heat was on that cold air was blowing on driver side. Hot on passenger side. Soon after started smelling hint of coolant out the vents and outside of vehicle...
  2. Blend Door Actuator Recalibration

    Heating & Cooling
    2014 Ram 1500, w/ dual climate control: I replaced my evaporator core last week because the old one was busted. Put everything back together, and then earlier this week, went and had the A/C system recharged. Well now that is all back together, when I turned the temperature control to "HI" is...
  3. 2001 Ram 1500: A/C not cold fan barely blows

    Heating & Cooling
    I have been dealing with this issue for years. I finally had enough. I ordered a new fan motor and a new fan motor regulator switch (ceramic control switch next to blower motor). First, I removed my seats so I would have an easier time getting under the dash (I am a big guy and last weekend...
  4. Heater Problems

    Heating & Cooling
    Have been having problems with my heat on my 2007 Ram 2500. I flushed my heater core and had decent flow through it. Dealer changed my water pump and thermostat due to a warranty issue (Lifetime powertrain warranty is a wonderful thing). Pulled heater box out to change doors knowing that my...
  5. Odd things with my heat?

    Heating & Cooling
    Hey everyone, So I got an 01 Ram 1500, 4x4, 5.9 Magnum. When I first bought it, I noticed the heat wasn't working in colder temps. So I replaced the thermostat. Still didn't work, then I noticed a leak in the radiator. Replaced it. Flushed the core, and converted the blend door to a manual...
  6. Block Heater Cord Replacement

    Heating & Cooling
    Went to go plug in my 2007 Dodge Ram to find that the cord was either cut or somehow ripped off. Theres about a foot left of cord inside engine compartment. Anyone know if these can be replaced without taking the heater core apart? I haven't looked where it connects yet. Seeing if anyone has...

  8. Cooling Fan & Heater Core Question

    Heating & Cooling
    Hey everyone... Couple quick questions for you... 1) Has anyone ever heard of their heater core "burping"? When I start my truck, and hit the gas, for the 1st few seconds, it sounds as if the water is "rushing" or "burping" through the heater core, then stops. It gets warm like it always has...

    Heating & Cooling
    I've been researching the best way to go about tearing into this heater core job, and I'm getting mixed results on whether or not I have to drain the A/C lines. Also whether or not i have to remove the entire dash or just roll it forward. Any hints, tips, experiences, pictures, and do's and...

  11. heater throws cool air; good thermostat whats next

    Heating & Cooling
    i just changed out my thermostat because I had no heat. Thought I would start there but it did nothing. Temp gauge is working fine. No leaks on my passenger side floor. I have a chk eng lite that went on but since my truck is a 95 the auto parts store can't diagnose anything older than a 96...
  12. A/C mod & heater core bypass

    Heating & Cooling
    I want to make the air conditioner in my 2011 ram colder. Living in an area with heat indexes at 100+ degrees in the summer months, the typical car or truck A/C just can't keep up. In a previous truck I had I by-passed the heater core with a vacuum actuated valve. The valve would open &...
  13. Heater Core Replacement

    Heating & Cooling
    If you are going to replace your heater core yourself like i recently did you should know that it can be done without draining the A/C system or removing the front seats.
