Question about 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan

1 Answer

Ac not cooling well - noticed 2 days ago steam coming out of ac vents.

I have a 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan with the 3.3 liter enginer. On Saturday we noticed steam coming from the ac vents when running. Today the ac does not seem to be cooling well. Is it just low on freon?

That was probably not steam but escaping freon coming from the vents. Probably the best course of action would be to take it to an AC repair shop.

    i have worked on many cars with this problem i realy dont know what causes it but i think its the evaporator starting to freeze up and what you are seeing is cold air mixing with warmer air like when you open the freezer in your house it has never caused a problem with the cooling of the car unless the evaporator actualy freezes up

I have a 2007 grand caravan. I used one can of ac coolant this seemed to work for a couple of days, Now there is no cool air coming out and the ac clutch dosent even kick on.Is this a bad compressor? Any...


The ac clutch wont kick on if the refrigerant is low. If you have rear air I wouldn't expect one can to do very much for very long. You may not have lost what you put in but it may not be enough to do anything. Try a large can for SUV's with stop leak, engine running, system turned on high, while charging the system. Make sure you screw the cap back onto the port.

My Dodge 2005 Ram overheats on hot days while running the AC. If I turn the heater on then it cools down. I need to know if this is a thermostat problem or if something else.


I see your post was a while ago. I hope this helps you or anyone ells having Dodge over heating issues.

I have a 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 and a 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan. I also owned a 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan. ALL of them had thermostat issues. When you replace the thermostat make certain you get the proper heat rating. If it is rated tool low, then the check engine light will trigger the code that the engine is not heating up fast enough. I also recommend going with a 'fail-safe' thermostat. These thermostats fail OPEN rather than closed. My 2002 RAM factory thermostat failed closed, built up pressure, then blew half the water out from under the radiator cap. This happened in less than 35k miles. The dealer replaced it. After a couple of years it failed again. Make sure you have 50/50 mix of anti freeze to water. This raises the boiling point of the water, makes it more efficient for cooling the engine, treats the water so it does not corrode and scale up the cooling system and helps keep the liquid from boiling off there by reducing the volume of fluid in the cooling system. Also, BOTH my 02 RAM and 05 caravan developed a leak in their radiators. They were slow leaks and I did not notice it until I did some standard checks and found the coolant was low, Most shops can run a pressure test for less than $40 to let you know if your radiator is leaking.

You should also make sure that your AC cooling fans is running. There are fuses and solenoids in the fuse box that can sometimes go out. When you AC is on this fans will turn on. If not, it could create a lot of extra heat.
