I can't seem to...

I can't seem to find a video on just hot to replace the heater valve... there is an arrow on it directing flow but I was not there when the old one was removed so I'm not sure what way to put it in.... does the arrow go facing the motor or towards the evaporator..?? thanks alot

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the coolant level? Has there been any leaking from the hoses?

No It snapped off on one side of the valve

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Dodge?

2001 ram van 1500 5.2 ltr the old 318

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Ram Van 1500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Just ordered the part... I know where it goes and the vacume line is taped off

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

No thank you

HI,

The arrow should face the evaporator I believe, but give me a couple of minutes to verify in the shop manual

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
