2003 dodge ram 2500 5.7L v8 with a leaking heater core

Question From zboy56 on 2003 dodge ram 2500 5.7L v8 with a leaking heater core

I was just wondering if there is a way to replace the heater core on this truck without completely removing the dash. If not my dad says he will take it to a shop.

Response From Sidom Top Rated Answer

No....unfortunately there are no good short cuts for this one......The top of the hvac box has to be taken off to get the core out and to get the top off....the box has to be remove...

I would change out the a/c evaparator while the hvac box is out.....These evaps are prone to leak and the a/c system has to be evacuated anyway to remove the box...........so since you are already there...............

Response From zboy56

alright i thought that the was going to be what one of guys were say thanks

Response From Sidom

No prob............never hurts to check......Good luck

chirping and no heat

Question From nc dodge on chirping and no heat

2001 Dodge Ram heater went out a month ago, so did the water pump. I had the pump replaced but the heater still does not work. The blower works and there is a chirping sound when I turn up the fan. any ideas?

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Is there obvious air flow out of any ducts? Chip sound could be a blower motor issue - either the motor itself or something caught in it.

For right now - IS THERE AIRFLOW AT ALL?

T

Ps: Took out the other post tagging on another vehicle's issue

Response From nc dodge

Yes, there is plenty of air floiw, I felt the hoses going into the firewall. the black rubber ones are hot, the silver (AC?) ones are not.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

OK: Don't worry about the A/C lines for now as they really have nothing to do with heat at the moment. Even if heat and A/C were fighting with each other the heat should win.

Now it's the "chirping" noise that may be the issue. Can you change that noise by asking for cooler air then back to warmer air or any other change like fan speed that changes that noise? If fan speed related it's a clue and a maybe.

There should be a "blend door" that adjusts the amount of heat that will pass on to cabin ducts. Some use an electric actuator motor to turn a flap and may sound like a stripped gear trying to change the postition of the flap door.

My guess it that will be found to be the problem but only a guess.

Hopefully Loren here is watching and will chime in if he knows where and how to check and or replace that actuator if it is found to be the fault,

T

Response From Loren Champlain Sr Top Rated Answer

Just checked Mitchell; Says you must remove instrument cluster and heater assy. to access the blend door actuator. (3.5 hrs) Doesn't sound like a friendly job. Both of the heater hoses, supply and return, should be of equal temp., and about the same as the radiator hoses once the engine reaches temperature. You can buy a digital infra-red temp tester (fairly inexpensive) to do these tests. And, they are nice to have around. If the heater hose temps are not equal or markedly lower than the radiator hoses, you may have a plugged heater core. Or, an air pocket if the system hasn't been bled well enough. You can 'carefully' remove the hoses from the heater core and, using a garden hose, flush the core both directions. I would check the things Tom suggested, first, though. With the noise you are getting, it's very possible that something has fallen into the ducting, blocking a blend door.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Hey Loren - Thanks for checking in on this thread and the estimated time for that. Actually that sounds low to me for time allowed by Mitchels but we know this is not fun stuff.

Good luck with it,

T

Response From nc dodge

Thanks Tom, Loren, I will try the heater core first, and hope!

Response From nc dodge

I was thinking something might have gotten stuck in it, since it is a dodge and all 2001's dash's are cracked beyond belief but, I dont know how to check this? Not sure where the door is, but. The chirping was going before the water pump went out. Does this narrow it down any?

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Arggh! Did you make a post before about duct parts broken beyond repair on this vehicle? I haven't heard of a tendancy for that YET in these trucks but it's scary if this is common for some reason. Sunlight heat shouldn't really be enough and UV rays can hurt plastics over time but these parts are out of direct light?? You just mentioned you'd seen this before - I haven't but that doesn't mean it doesn't happen.

If a chunk of something did break off there's a chance you could clear it out going thru by removing blower motor and the squirrel cage. There are cases where rodent nests, leaves or junk gets in a causes issues and some can be fixed that way. Not sure if you can fix much from just that access and taking it totally apart may render the whole distribution box junk if that brittle with some out of control price tag no doubt - catastropically expensive to send out with a very high # of hours needed to do that completely! Egad - hope not.

If this chirping is fan speed related it should be either the motor or the squirrel cage making the noise but that doesn't account for loss of heat by itself - yet. May have to get in to look.

Check for recalls if you think this is too common for where you are. Heat damage would be worse in many other places than SC if that's where you are,

T

Response From nc dodge

Tom, It is only the dash and plastics, I think from 1999-2002 Dodge Raams, google it, alot of PO's people and Dodge wont fix, no recall. there is nothing broken/cracked whee the chirping seem sto be comming from. I want to start with the basic checks because from experience, this is usually the problem. Thankfully it is warm in NC tomorrow. it does blow semi warm, more after I get up to 55 for a few minutes but not like it used to. I have checked fuses, looked around connections, been told heater core but, thats beyond me! the radiator is full and the reserve. help me out, please say this is something simple!

Response From nc dodge

I should spell check myself

Response From Tom Greenleaf

If it can do some warm than flush the heck out of the core. That alone is telling of how much junk it in there and the flow available - doesn't account for any noise though.

If core is restricted there would be a warm/hot inlet heater hose and a cool outlet/return hose as all available heat would have been taken away. When perfect they both stay a bit hot as there's ample hot coolant to make heat in most applications. If not leaking a core should be flush able most of the time. If that works satisfactorily do the whole cooling system too or you should anyway if not done anytime recently. Don't overdo antifreeze either! Not more than 50/50 mix and don't mess that up. Too strong just won't throw as much heat!

The plastic issue: If it's just cosmetic stuff it just a plain bummer. Every vehicle I've ever known had something boneheaded about it or just plain cheap.

Wish we could take all the perfect ideas and stuff, stick them all in one and end this bullsh*t of re-engineering the wheel every ten years with things that already proved right!

98 Dodge Ram Strange Liquid Sloshing Sound

Showing 2 out of 4 Posts | Show 2 Hidden Posts
Question From javajockey on 98 Dodge Ram Strange Liquid Sloshing Sound

98 Dodge Ram 1500 318 V8. Hi, I am a new user and here is stupid question number 1. When taking off from a stop light or sign I hear the sound of liquid sloshing coming from the dash area on the passenger side. There are no leaks and everything seems to be working fine but the sound has me concerned. It sounds like a significant amount of liquid. Please share possible causes. Could a layman make a repair?

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

Probably hearing coolant flowing thru the heater core. Check that coolant is full at radiator and recovery and if cold has proper level of antifreeze.

Some use a restrictor to slow coolant and if hoses (likely) have been replace it may be missing. Those just were really to lower flow to not over pressure heater core with higher RPMs of engine. I've mistakenly left them out as some are hidden inside the hose and that one (one of my own) was fine but gave the sloshing sound.

Could be something else altogether too but do make sure coolant is full and if not WHY not!

T

Response From Hammer Time

It depends if the sound is triggers by the motion of the vehicle or the RPM of the engine. If it is triggered by the motion of the car, then it could be condensation building up in the evaporator case and not draining as it should or it could be water collecting in the outside vent compartment but that would be freezing in cold weather.
If it's triggered by engine RPM, then I would go with Tom's suggestion.

2000 Ram 1500 heater

Question From mattc on 2000 Ram 1500 heater

Hi - new visitor here - thanks for the opportunity. I took my 2000 Ram to the shop yesterday for a new water pump and belt. All of this went fine but now I have no heat. I've checked all of the vacuum lines I can find, I can feel the heater core behind the glove box and it's hot and the blower is working fine. The shop is closed and I need to have my truck at work Monday. Could it be air blend and if so is it electric or vacuum? Is there any way to "rig" this into the correct position until I can fix it? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Response From jj

under hood pass. side should be a black vacuum line by dryer follow it to engine checking it for breaks and still hooked up

Response From Jeff Norfolk

jj, I think the blend door actuator is electric per the previous posts from 2 month ago.

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

jj: Appeciate any help and comments. Look at the dates or the original posts - some are just archives,

T

Response From Double J

Mode Door = vacuum motor
Blend Air Door = electric actuator
Fresh/Recirc = vacuum motor

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Nice find JIM. With this recent water pump job and this problem right away I suspect it might not be properly filled with coolant - even hot air will make the core hot to the touch but not transfer heat worth a damn. Check level at radiator cap and then adjust level at recovery tank,

T

Response From mattc

Thanks guys, the coolant level is good and flowing. I'm really suspecting the air blend but I'm having a hard time believing the coincedence of timing. The last time I had the truck fixed there it was the air conditioning and I lost the cruise control. It seems a bit of a chore to get that far into the dash - any diagnostic suggestions before I drop another $1000 on the truck? Thanks again.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

The coincidence is uncanny?? JIM found that the blend door is an electric actuator. Perhaps you can get a peek or hand on it going up from under passenger's side lower dash or thru the glove box. I don't know but it might be electrically controlling a lever that you could get at. Do the other functions of the control head work?

T

Response From mattc

Found the actuator - thanks - unfortunately there isn't anything exposed enough to get a tool on. Yes, everything else works. I can't dismantle anything either due to proximity to the floor. It sounds like I should brace for another bill huh?
