2000 Ram 5.9 Heater and Temp Problem
I just recently bought a '00 5.9 4x4 185,000 miles for my daughter from an individual. The water pump and thermostat was replaced prior to me buying the truck. The heater will not heat up and the temp. gauge inside the cab only registers maybe 150. At times, if I "gun" the engine the temp will start to register about 180-200 and the heater will start to work. When it starts to work there is a anti-freeze smell in the cab. Then if I turn off the truck for a while (like go into the store) it goes back to not working until I gun it again. The defroster also seems to not work well either. Any ideas guys? I have flushed the heater core once and am about to do it again since reading other posts.
