94 Dodge Ram Van 250

Showing 2 out of 8 Posts | Show 6 Hidden Posts
Question From romy on 94 Dodge Ram Van 250

I have a 94 Dodge Ram Van 250. Where is the starter and the thermostat located? Are there any links with diagrams you could point me to? Thanks!

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

You don't need a diagram. Starter is at the end of the positive battery cable at the engine. Thermostat is at the engine end of the upper radiator hose. What are you up to with this van?

T

Response From Guest

Tom,

Thanks for your quick reply. I think my starter is going bad so I am going to try to replace it myself. When I try to start the van, it takes several attempts of turning the key before the engine will turnover. Also, sometimes I have to put the van in neutral to start it. My mechanic tells me this is the neutral safety switch. Do you know where this is located? Is it difficult to replace? In the past it would start right up when I put it in neutral, now it takes several attempts. As far as the thermostat, I think it could be sticking open? My temp gauge barely makes it above “C” and the heat is not very warm. Any suggestions? I am not a mechanic but I can usually figure things out with good instructions and diagrams. Thanks for your help!

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Of course I'm guessing but I don't think you need a starter just yet but rather the neutral safety switch. It could be at the transmission where the linkage shifts it - don't know for sure. Try looking up the part at AutoZone or another and see if it gives a location or specific instructions for that.

Running cold would almost always be a thermostat stuck open. Because it's a van getting to the thermostat's cover may be a pest. It's really just a housing, gasket and the thermostat that must point in the right direction and most are marked "towards radiator" or you would just put the side with the spring towards the engine. This van is no doubt a pig on gas so the sooner that's done the better as it's using more fuel running cold all the time. That's a straight forward job unless bolts/nuts are so corroded they could break and you don't want that nightmare.

You should be able to jumper the neutral safety switch for a test but you MUST ABSOLUTELY know the vehicle is in park or neutral to start it as it would then start in gear and could just take off on you!!!!

Get yourself a product called "PB" Power Blaster that is a great penetrating oil. For vehicle use not for household as it's too strong. Spray some on the fasteners you expect to need to remove asap and it could save a lot of trouble.

Hit back if you can't find the switch or someone here may know where it is,

T

Response From romy

Tom,

I looked for the neutral safety switch and can't find it. Is there a diagram somewhere online that shows the location? Thanks.

Question From broncobob552002 on 1999 ram 1500

i have a 1999 ram 318 the radiator has back pressure before the thermostat opens

Response From broncobob552002

thx for the reply my radiator has back pressure enough to poor out the overflow bottle (cold water) and temp guage will over heat until thermostat opens i've replaced thermostat and rad cap top hose waterpump hope you can help and thx again (oh I have new radiator too)

Response From GC Top Rated Answer

So if you start the vehicle cold, does the upper radiator hose stay cool even when the temp gauge rises above normal? Need to get a infrared thermometer and check against gauge and verify temp that tstat opens. A pressure tester would be very helpful. When does it overflow?

Response From Tom Greenleaf

System has to be known full. Air or vapor anywhere or anyhow getting in to system will blow out that bottle like a real overheat which your gauge shows as well. Probably is.

This can happen from a head gasket failure frequently the result of your original issue not the cause but doesn't matter now check whole system out and that too,

T

Response From Hammer Time

So........ what's the issue?

Response From Tom Greenleaf

No issue yet at HT said. T-stat doesn't make or allow pressure, the pressure cap does,

dodge ram overheats

Showing 2 out of 2 Posts
Question From zxvtrp on dodge ram overheats

My 1983 dodge ram 318 cu in engine overheats after driving about 20 minutes. I notice the top radiator hose very tight like thermostat stuck. I removed it and it did it again. So I replace radiator cap and still the top hose gets very tight when I notice overheating. I installed new radiator a couple of years ago and put on new water pump about a year ago, so I don't think the radiator is plugged. Could my engine jacket be plugged?

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

When you say the radiator hose get very tight I'm guessing you mean with pressure. If it pressurizes very quickly from cold it may be from a head gasket leak putting gasses into the cooling system. Top rad hose should stay cool till thermostat opens and will be too hot to hold and you will feel the air from the fan warm up. If that's not happening coolant can't flow.

Check that coolant is staying full at radiator cap and reservoir,

chirping and no heat

Showing 2 out of 12 Posts | Show 10 Hidden Posts
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 P/U 1500 temp sensor wires missing

Showing 3 out of 3 Posts
Question From comnavguy on 98 Dodge P/U 1500 temp sensor wires missing

1998 Dodge Ram 1500 with a 3.9L V6 engine 178,000 miles showed code 0117 coolant temp sensor ckt low input.

It's low alright, as in no input. There is no connector AND no loose wires that I can find. I've pushed and pulled bundles trying to find 2 loose wires, but I can find nothing.

The sensor is right behind the top radiator hose and it looks as if the wires should be routed down the passender's side of the engine, but I'm at a complete loss.

Please help with directions and a picture would be nice.

Thanks.

Response From Hammer Time

Looks like the wires are routed behind the A/C compressor. Examine the harness in that area.

Response From comnavguy Top Rated Answer

Thanks for the diagram. I just learned that there was work done on the head(s) of this truck. I'm still at a loss to see what the last guy did with the harness. I'm guessing the wires are hanging down behind the engine against the firewall.

This is a puzzle, but tomorrow I'll be in and UNDER this truck to find the wires.
