Question about 2002 Dodge Intrepid
I was driving down the road and all the sudden there was a loud thump. Then my car started smoking really bad. We opened the hood and there was radiator fluid all over the place. There is a little box type of thing that the top came off. We are trying to figure out what that part is. It is on the top of the front of the motor.
That my friend just happened to me and I went to the junkyard and replaced it.It is the thermastat housing and the pressure in the cooling systems sometimes build up to much and causes the top of that box to blow if your system isn't burpped- which is done by turning that valve on the top of that black box. VERY COMMON FOR THESE CARS
