Default Is there any air-filter inside of dash-board?

I have Dodge Avenger, 1997, 2.0.

When engine warms up, i get a warm air inside.
But i think i should have more.


So i thought, maybe there is some additional air filter inside dashboard that i need to replace, to get more warm air inside?


Or i just have to take it apart and clean everything up?
We have cold times here atm, so i think it could be warmer inside car.

It get's pretty hot when i drive around a lot, but it seems to be too slow.

Default Cabin Air Filter

go to this website and enter your model/year to see videos. I have a 1996 Avenger ES and there 'may be' a cabin air filter .... look at the video - if your car does have it it is behind the glove box (it comes out easily - no tools)

I've never seen one with a filter....

I'm betting you have a bad thermostat or clogged heater core

have you checked the radiator ? full ? radiator cap?

I once looked the level of coolant, it was "a bit" low, so i added more.
Maybe the air got inside and now i have the air inside the cooling system.
Don't know.


I have plan to make almost full maintenance for my sweetie in the summer, changing oil, the coolant and other things. I already replaced air filter.

I hope i can drive until it get's warmer and i can work on her.
I don't have a garage and it's too cold to work outside atm.
I will check the coolant level once again. It wouldn't hurt.

But what i should look in radiator cap?


EDIT: eschober thanks for the link. Very good vids. I entered 1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse and i got videos almost like for my car.
Because Mitsu eclipse is like Dodge Avenger, just with different body. The interior / engine is practically same.


EDIT2: how i can figure out, if i have Dodge ES or just Dodge?

What the ES means anyway?

ES is a trim level ...
If you have an ES it should be on the title ...
There is also a lip spoiler that goes with it as well...
most have a 5 spoke rim as well ...

Bad venge, if that red on picture is ES, then i think i don't have ES.
Looks a bit different to me.

About that filter, i looked but only saw that there are 2 black boxes with some wires going into them, and boxes are labeled as: Denso, and some other things, and then 12V (12 volts).

I don't know what they are. But i know that Denso makes air filters.


How the hell the fresh air comes into car then?

All the dust, sand etc directly goes into my face?
Or the air goes through main (engine) air filter?


I don't understand this. How is that possible that there is no filter.
Although i have air conditioner, that gives me cold air in hot summers.

Bad_venge, i want to buy this book
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Chrysler-Seb...item5885615b75

Is it worth the purchase? It should contain stuff also about Dodge Avenger like mine.
Or not?

I have no books about Dodge available here. So i thought, i should buy it.

I'm not a big fan of the haynes/chiltons they are a weak brewed down version of the factory manual , I got the factory from ebay for $15 shipped ...

Before you buy I'd see if the local library has one you can read it over and see if you think it's worth it
