I have a 2008...

I have a 2008 Dodge Avenger 2.7L. I am not getting hot air in the cabin, The car does get to operating temp but still not much heat to the cabin.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the coolant? Have you noticed any leaking?

No coolant leaking and It is full. I did an air bleed on it as well. The check engine light is not on but could the temp sensor be faulty? The cooling fans start to run as soon as I start the car cold.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Avenger yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am fixing this myself. I was going to Change out the thermostat and see if that helps. I unplugged the fans just to see if the car would start to overheat. It does not, That has got me thinking the thermostat is stuck open.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That all Ive got

Hi im kevin your on the right track .if cooling fans run from start without ac on then the temp sender or wiring is at fault and needs to be addressed before going further .temp sensor is the most likely as they arent uncommon

Is there a ohm rating for that sensor so I can check the resistance?

Just needs to give a reading if fan is running its likely open circuit
