On the radiator cap there is a small hose that goes to the reservoir. Ocationally it gets clogged not permitting the built-up pressure to release. Disconnect this small hose and try blowing into it, you should be able the hear the bubbles in the reservoir. If you cannot blow into it or hear the bubbles, apply air pressure or water pressure with a garden hose. This should eliminate one probable a most missed problems for the overheating.If overheating continues, the culprit may be the waterpump or the thermostat.

Where is the thermostat located on a 2000 Dodge Durango

If you look at the picture.
Notice where the radiator cap is, follow that hose to the left and where it meets the engine is where your thermostat will be.
It will be located behind, and about in between the alternator and A/C pump.

Dodge durango 2004 hemi over heating after all the repairs i have done new radiator,water pump hoses , clutch fan, radiator cap and 3 different thermostats,

The cooling system has to be bleed of air.To do this locate the bleeder on the coolant inlet on engine. Remove the bleeder and the radiator cap, fill with coolant until there are no more air bubbles coming out of bleeder. Top off resivor close bleeder replace cap. Start and let it get to normal operating temp, If all is good now you are finished. If it still overheats let it cool off until there is no pressure on upper hose .Carefully remove cap and repeat bleeding process

When you fill the radiator, did you make sure the car heater was set to Full Hot? If not, there could be an airlock in the water system. This can give the symptoms you describe.

2000 Dodge Durango getting over heated

Never use a used radiator... check electric cooling fan, and air must be purged out of the radiator / cooling system after refilling it, this can be a little difficult. are you sure that it is not leaking coolant from somewhere else, which would cause the overheating.?

Where is the thermostat located on a 2000 dodge durango

Follow your upper radiator hose from the radiator to the top of your engine, there where it clamps on is the thermostat housing, remove hose and two or three small bolt's that hold thermostat housing under that is where the thermostat is at. Remmeber that the spring side of the thermostat is what goes into the engine side, facing down.

make sure engine is cool then drain coolant by opening the drain plug at bottom of radiator. remove cap from radiator so coolant will continue to drain and when coolant is down enough to pull off upper radiator hose at intake then close drain, then remove two bolts at coolant housing and remove thermostate. clean gasket material from intake and housing and replace with new gasket and thermostate tighten bolts install hose fill rad with coolant water mix 50/50 and run engine with heat on floor until gets hot and you see coolant flowing in rad, install cap
