3. i changed the heater core in my 1999 durango but now the blower motor won't work why?

Resistors fail yes, but most of time the system will still work at full blast (cause its not asked to resist 12v to reduce voltage/motor speed). Pretty brave doing a heater core without knowing about the system. Sounds like your trying to blame a mechanic... Anywho heater core is simply a smaller radiator in your dash(fun part) now the blowing part; the dial (part 1) feeds increments of voltage to a resistor. The resistor(part 2) reads that and resists 12 volts fed to it throught higher amperage wiring accordingly and sends 2-4-6-8-10- or 12v (full blast) thru to the motor(part 3). The motor spins a, what I like to call a "birdcage", fan (part 4) Part 1 coulda failed Part 2 coulda failed Part 3 coulda failed Part 4 coulda broke (rats and mice looooove finding their way in there, usually not enough to break but it makes a super obvious jet engine noise as the fan is now outta balance as its spinning the foreign objects, mice, round and round) Using a multimeter will point you to everything but 4, use your nose and ears for that one haha Motor and fan are that funny bump right above your passengers right foot, the resistor is right nearby(follow the wiring from the motor) and you know where the dial is

11. The heater core thing..I didn't tell enough . The thermostat has been changed(hopefully the right one)?

What are you talking about. ? It sounds like you continued another question on this one - the net result is something that does not make sense. Let me try a guess... your heater core or your hot water hoses blew.. you replaced them and now the heat in the truck is verrrrry low.? Ok.. the thermostat does not matter. Its function is to retard the water flow thru the engine block so that the engine heats up faster. When the engine heats up, the thermostat opens and lets more water thru to keep the engine at that temperature and no hotter. You can REMOVE a thermostat and just have an engine that takes longer to heat up.. BUT IT WILL HEAT UP. Soooo.... you problem is one of several things You get some heat so the system must be connected. (but check it anyway... there should be two hoses into the heater core. One from the water pump and one returning. If that checks, remove the thermostat that everyone is so concered about, reseal the housing and check the following: a) If you replaced the core, then maybe something is faulty inside of it (a plug?). Your mechanic can test this by simply hooking your system up to a garden hose and seeing if the water flows thru it with some velocity. b) Your heater hoses are bad. Hoses can swell and plug.. same test as in #1 will tell you that. c) The heater hose clamps are not on properly. If they are not placed over the inlets, the net effect when they are tightened is to sqeeze the hose shut. Remove and reposition the clamps. (Sounds like a dumb thing does not it, but you would be surprised how many times this happens). d) Water pump is out. I doubt this.. your car would be having a major problem if it was.... its got to be one of those... Next time write a better question.... please.

Sputtering Sedan Could Have a Stuck Valve
QUESTION: I have a problem with my 2005 Nissan Altima. My "check engine" light came on, so I went to the mechanic to have him pull the code. He said it wasn't really reading anything, reset the code and told me to come in if it happens again. The next day it came on again. I stopped at the gas station since I needed gas and filled my tank. When I went to start my car, it wouldn't start. I sat there for 15 minutes before it started. When it did start, I had to give it some gas because it was sputtering. The "check engine" light was still on so I brought the car to the mechanic the next day. He reset the code again and said to let him know if it came on again at the gas station next time.I filled up about a week later, and once again it wouldn't start. I told my mechanic this and he said to try to get gas with the car running next time. So once again, I got gas but this time left my car running.This time, as I was pumping gas, the car was sputtering and the tachometer was fluttering the entire time. But when I was done pumping, it seemed to run just fine. My car acts up only when filling gas; otherwise it runs great.R.S.ANSWER: What's interesting about this question is that the mechanic is trying to pinpoint the problem by asking the car owner to do all the work! Try this, try that, etc. Since the "check engine" light has come on each time, a scan tool should identify the specific DTC fault code associated with this problem. The comment "wasn't really reading anything" doesn't make sense - the "check engine" light was on!I suspect the DTC will relate to the evaporative emissions system, which includes the purge valve. If the purge valve is stuck open, raw fuel/vapours can be pumped through the charcoal canister directly into the induction system during refuelling, which, of course, would create exactly the symptoms you've described.Q: I have a 2004 5.7-litre Dodge Durango with 260,000 kilometres. As I come to a complete stop, the tachometer will drop momentarily from around 750 r.p.m to less than 500. The engine will occasionally stall. I must depress the gas pedal slightly to get it restarted. Initially, I had the throttle body thoroughly cleaned, then replaced it this past weekend. I also replaced the oxygen sensors, but nothing has helped. I should also mention that the "check engine" light has never come on. Any ideas?K.D.A: The 5.7-litre V-8 in this vehicle is equipped with a "flyby-wire" throttle system. Instead of a mechanical cable or linkage connecting the throttle pedal to the throttle body, an accelerator pedal position sensor, or APPS, is fitted directly to the throttle pedal and electrically connected to the powertrain control module, or PCM. In simple terms, rather than the throttle plate being opened and closed mechanically by movement of the throttle pedal, the position of the throttle pedal is communicated to the PCM, which operates the throttle via signal to the electronic throttle body.Now that you've cleaned and replaced the throttle body, which includes the throttle and idle air control valve, I'd suggest plugging in a scan tool and having the APPS swept/checked for dead spots in its potentiometer. Also, check for any type of vacuum or air leak in the induction system that would allow unmetered air into the system.Q: I have a 1998 Chevy S-10 and I am getting the smell of antifreeze coming from the air vents. It seems to be stronger when the heat is on. There is no antifreeze leaking anywhere in the engine or under the dash. The heater core hoses are tight, and they are both hot after warming up the engine. I just recently bought the truck and a short time after that the A/C quit working. I don't know if that would cause the smell to occur. I would hate to replace the heater core if I am not sure that that is the problem. Any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated.R.G.A: Your thoughts about the odour coming from the heater core are well founded, as this is the only area within the truck cab where antifreeze exists. It's possible also, but less likely, that leaking coolant odours are coming in with the ventilation air from an under-hood leak.Typically, when a heater core begins to leak, one may notice fogging of the windshield when using the defroster; damp-slimy carpet beneath the right/centre of the instrument panel; and a citrus-like odour, similar to what you've described. There would also be a loss of engine coolant, but the rate may be less than you'd expect - it only takes half a litre of leakage to create the above symptoms - and this might not be immediately evident looking at the coolant overflow bottle level. A leak from under the hood should be easy to spot on the ground.Your heater core is a cigar box-sized mini-radiator that transfers engine heat to the passenger compartment via circulating engine coolant. This part resides deep within the heater/ventilation system, and most aren't very pleasant to renew, as quite a bit of instrument panel disassembly is often required. Most heater cores are made of thin-wall aluminum, with a large network of finned passages that provide maximum surface area for heat transfer. Over time, accelerated by deferred cooling system maintenance, internal corrosion will find a weak spot, and pressurized coolant will begin to seep into the surrounding housing, and eventually to the carpet beneath.I have a hunch your heater core may have a tiny leak, and most of the liquid may be vaporizing, causing the odour, or hasn't yet reached a seam of the heater housing. To be sure, you may need to drill a small hole in the lowest part of the plastic housing. Slide a piece of hose or tubing on the drill bit so it can't bore more than one-quarter inch deep - you don't want to cause new problems. Then, after shutting off the fully warmed up engine and waiting perhaps 15 minutes, check for signs of coolant leakage at the test location. Even one drop of coolant means trouble.I can't fathom how the air conditioning working or not would be a factor regarding this odour. Refrigerant is odorless, should leakage occur. It's likely a coincidence the A/C has recently quit.Paul Brand, author of "How to Repair Your Car," is an automotive troubleshooter, driving instructor and former race-car driver.

1985 Mustang Heater Core?
Why would someone bypass a new heater core? I replaced a heater core in an 83 mustang with A/C years ago. It took 2.5 days to strip the car's dash all the way down and then replace it.

How to Clean Thermocouple on Water Heater?Do you have colder showers than you would like, or is the water you use for dishwashing feel lukewarm? Knowing how to clean thermocouple on water heater can help you bring back more enjoyable showers, more efficient dishwashing, and others. The thermocouple is an essential element of your gas water heater's pilot light, ensuring more efficient water temperature management. Unfortunately, it can rust or wear out over time. There is no need to replace your thermocouple when all you need are a bit of elbow grease, a few tools, and this step-by-step guide to breathing life back into your thermocouple. Things You Need to Clean Your Water Heater's Thermocouple Cleaning your gas water heater's thermocouple is a pretty straightforward activity. However, there are a few preparations to get the job done. While open-end wrenches may suffice, you may have a whole bunch of these tools on hand if you do not know the size of the different nuts in your system. An adjustable wrench eliminates the need for several devices and makes your work more efficient. Emery cloth is almost similar to a nail file which has an abrasive surface. The difference is that an emery cloth has a fabric backing, while an emery board or nail file has a wooden base. The function is similar, nevertheless. They sand or smoothen the thermocouple ends while also removing oxidized layers. This type of cleaning cloth is ideal as a finishing touch to the thermocouple cleaning process. Its main advantage is that it will not leave any fluff on the surface. We recommend a microfiber cloth for cleaning the thermocouple. While not necessary, a small brush can help dust off particles from the thermocouple and the burner assembly. If the emery cloth cannot remove stubborn stains, you can use a steel pool. Always look after your safety when working with your gas water heater. Turn off the gas supply to your unit. If your unit has a power cord, it would also be best to unplug it. Some gas water heaters have two gas supply valves: one going to the gas furnace and another to the water heater. It would be safer to turn both valves off. Pro Tip: If your gas supply valve does not have a lever or a knob, you can use a pair of pliers or a vise grip to shut off the valve. If your burner has an access cover, unthread the mounting screws first. Loosen and remove the screws or nuts that secure the burner plate. Loosen the nut that connects the burner supply line to the control center. You will also disconnect the pilot light supply tube and the thermocouple. If your unit has any wires connected to the control center, you must disconnect these, too. Check your tank base if it has a vapor sensor. Detach the sensor if you have one. To gain access to the thermocouple, slide the burner assembly out of the water heater. Pro Tip: If this is your first time removing the burner assembly, it would be best to take a picture of it before disassembly. The image serves as a guide for you to reassemble the unit after cleaning the thermocouple. Sand the thermocouple ends using an emery cloth. Some plumbers recommend using steel wool to remove stubborn stains on the thermocouple. Ensure you do not see any dirt, soot, or residue after cleaning. Check the area between the thermocouple terminal and the power wire for any sign of corrosion. Remove the rust if any. Finish cleaning by wiping the thermocouple ends with a clean microfiber cloth or any other type of lint-free cloth. Pro Tip: Avoid using so-called thermocouple cleaning solutions, regardless of how convenient they may seem. Some of these products may contain flammable chemicals that can pose a threat to your system and your home. Do not limit your cleaning duties to the thermocouple. Now is the best time to give the burner a thorough cleaning as well. Get your steel wool or emery cloth sandpaper to scrape as much stain as possible from the burner's top. Use a small brush to remove debris that might go into the burner ports or holes. Cleaning your burner will improve your gas water heater's efficiency. Return the burner assembly into the water tank. Make sure to rest the burner tube on the bracket for security and stability. Secure the burner plate by threading and tightening the mounting screws or nuts. If your unit has a vapor sensor, reattach it first before reconnecting the different wires to the water heater gas valve. Position the thermocouple to the gas valve and secure it. Reconnect the pilot light supply line and the burner gas supply tube to the control center or gas valve. Replace and secure the water heater burner access cover. Open your water heater's gas supply line and plug the power cord of your unit if it has one. Turn on the pilot light and adjust the thermostat to your desired temperature. It would be best to dial in a temperature not higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Check your water if it is in your desired temperature. Do you think our simplified guide on how to clean thermocouple on water heater is simple and easy to follow? There can be many reasons why your water heater is not producing hot-enough water. A dirty thermocouple is one of them, but one that many people overlook. Now that you know how to clean your gas water heater's thermocouple, you may want to share this knowledge with your friends. They will thank you for saving them from costly repairs and replacements while letting them enjoy the benefits of a fully functioning water heater. Do share with us your thoughts, too.

I had a plymouth car that had issue with the core clogging up slowly over time. Every couple of months a visit to the carwash was done and heater hoses were pulled off and the pressure wand inserted into the neck and blasted out the crud. It worked like a charm. I would think you may not be able to as easily reach the heater core in most new cars but, disconnecting the hoses where they meet the engine and blasting through it with a garden hose nozzle might work.

To remove the hoses, you must cut them off or you will break the core, and when you put the new hose on use a little lubricant on the tubes so the hoses go on easly. The hoses that come from the core to the engine if allowed to bounce up and down will over a period break the tubes that go into the core. They must be tied up and/or supported to something that does not move to stabalize them. If they are too short, and do not have the room to move with the engine, and not move with the body, then they will break the core. What I mean is: attach the hoses to the fender somehow to keep them from moving up and down on the core side, and as the engine moves up and down with taking off and stoping they need to be able to move with the engine on that side of the hoses. This is not some mystery or an incompetant person installing the heater core. If it worked ok when it was installed, and a year later starts leaking, then how can one blame this on the installer? A lot of times it will be the hose clamps are loose and needs tightened up at the core. If they are too loose, then coolant can trickle down the pipe to the inside of the vehicle and cause what looks like a leaking core. Check these clamps first, and if they are tight, then suspect a bad heater core. I have also seen a core that is not sitting inside a cushion mount and will allow the core to viberate and move around, and after a while causes the core to start leaking. Changing the heater core is the fix, but one must also look for the cause, and fix this as well.

Espically those having to do with the heater and controls. Usually there is a temperature valve somtimes located in the heater hose, which controls the air being blown into the heater itself. But if the hoses are getting hot, I would not think this valve is acting up either. Still, none the less, it would not hurt to give the entire heating system a complete once over. It is possible that the temperature door in the heater is not moving properly, either. This would cause a no heat condition also. You can have hot hoses, but if the temperature door is closed or only partly open, well then you would have a little or no heat condition. Cause the hot air cannot get by the closed temperature door. While if it were open, then the heat would pass right through and into the heater to be blown into your interior.

Radiator and over flow frozen in 1996 jeep grand cherokee Please help I was stupid!!!!!!!?You need to get this vehicle inside to a warm place ASAP before you do some expensive damage to the engine. As water freezes it expands. This expansion is strong enough to damage your engine. At the very least, you could pop one or more freeze plugs. These are lightweight metal disks located in the engine block and cylinder head(s). In theory these pop out of the block to allow room for freezing water in the water jacket. If you poped a freeze plug you will want to have this vehicle towed to a mechanic for repairs. Worst case this ice in your engine can crack your engine block, cylinder head(s), radiator, and heater core. Starting the engine may not be a good idea. There is a good possibility that the water pump has ice in it. If you start the engine you could destroy the water pump and serpentine belt. Try this. Remove the fuse for the fuel pump. Open the hood and have a friend watch the water pump. Crank the engine a little. Your friend is watching for the water pump pulley turning. If it turns you are OK. Replace the fuel pump fuse. If you are on a budget, try this. If you are in a garage, open the garage door. Start the engine and let it run for a few minutes. Watch the engine for leaks. If water starts leaking turn the engine off immediately. You have damage that must be repaired immediately. If there are no leaks. Turn the engine off for a few minutes and close the hood. After a few minutes, open the hood, start the engine, and allow it to run for a few minutes. Repeat this process for as long as it takes to thaw the engine. Once the ice is melted you really need to drain all of the water from the engine and replace it with the correct mixture of antifreeze. Most engines will also have a block drain plug. Remove this plug also to get all of the water from the engine block. If you do not get all of the water from the engine it will dilute any antifreeze that you add later. Do this right away so the engine does not freeze again. $20 worth of antifreeze can save you $5000 in engine repairs. Well worth the investment do not you think?5. My car is overheating, what should I do?If the coolant level is too low it will not circulate through the cylinder head and it will overheat.
