My 02 Dak has always had limited AC capabilities and now I'm noticing a heating issue as well. When I take a corner at speed, like a freeway off ramp, I'll get a blast of cold air through the vents. I think the blend door is swinging open and letting outside air bypass the heater core. I've searched off and on for 3 days on the forums and haven't found anything quite like this. Has anyone had an issue with the blend door breaking or the motor/linkage failing? Heatertreater.net doesn't list any options for the Dak/Dur, only the ram.
Thanks,
C

Same here. Should be a little 1" white tab on top of the heater core box that has a rigid wire connected to it. Either that piece or the spring inside the box is broke/gone. You pretty much need to replace the whole box, or just do it so you don't have a problem like this again. You CAN rig it to work, and I could help explain that, BUT I would NOT recommend that.
