Is the thermostat the only part that would control or have anything to do with an engine not warming up enough? (150)
I have changed the thermostat (twice) and the heater core. There is a 50 degree difference between the temp at the engine (by thermostat and the top hose. The bottom hose is also hot but when heater is on cools down. I had the water pump replaced about a year and a half ago. Could the impeller be wrong or the polarity reversed to cause this? What is the problem?
A mechanic recently told me there is an obstruction in the dashboard that is causing the A/C not to blow very strong. The A/C itself is fine: it cools, no leaks, the blower is working fine - but it blows very weak. I had the same problem in my 2006 Ram 1500 and simply removed a flap under the dash. Took all of 3 minutes. Could it be a similar situation?
