The heater on my 1997 Dodge Ram is not blowing hot air. It takes a long time to warm up in our Michigan winters and never gets very hot. Not sure if it's the thermostat and maybe needs a radiator flush. Any suggestions? Thanks.

It sounds like your thermostat may be stuck open. A plugged radiator would make the engine run hotter not cooler.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR RESPONSE. IT DOES BLOW COOL AIR, BUT IT DOESN'T GET VERY COLD. ALSO, THE HEATER DOESN'T GET VERY WARM EITHER. I HAD THE RADIATOR FLUSHED, BUT IT DIDN'T MAKE A DIFFERENCE. I'LL REPLACE THE THERMOSTAT TO SEE IF THAT HELPS. THANKS AGAIN. JACK
