I'm having trouble with overheating my 2000 5.9L 4x4 Dodge Durango. I've replaced the thermostat,fan clutch, water pump & still running hot heater core.would flushing cooling system fix my problem


The radiator is most likely plugged. Flushing is the least expensive way to try to fix the problem. It may not clear a severely plugged radiator. Watch the lower radiator hose with the engine running. Accelerate the engine. If the hose tries to collapse, then the radiator is definitely plugged.

Why is my dodge ram overheating?


Sensor would just cause a check engine light and radiator caps hardly ever go bad. It's possible you put the thermostat in upside down. Also possible that a hose is clogged. More than likely you have a massive air bubble trapped in the engine block.

97 aurora overheats new stat flush system oil not milky or over filled new cap still overheat but when i put the cap on half way tighten i dont overheat whats my problem


Was the engine overheating before you replaced the thermostat ?
By not putting the cap on tight, you are not allowing the cooling system to build up pressure. So it could be a restriction somewhere like a radiator hose.

My 97 Astro van is overheating after flushing radiator and changing thermostat. What can it Be?


did you burp all the air out of the system.

With the engine cold remove the radiator cap. Top off with coolant. Start the engine and let idle topping off coolant as necessary. When the engine is fully warmed up and you feel heat coming from the radiator fan replace the radiator cap.

1. With what you have replaced, the only remaining credible explanation is the Water Pump. If the Water Pump is not operating correctly, this will cause overheating. The Radiator -"side blow out"? Did the radiator cap you have on not work. Overheating should cause fluid = steam to blow out the cap and not blow out the side of the radiator.
2. One thing you can do before replacing the Water Pump is to flush your entire system. There could be a blockage in the system. These flushing kits are available at most stores (Walmart or Autoparts Stores) and you can do it yourself.
3. Was the Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (mounted near the thermostat) also changed out? If this was malfunctioning it could be giving you a false reading.
The Water Pump is the likely culprit if the Van is truely overheating.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional questions or information. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Keeps boilling over


Don't know what you are testing by squeezing things but if lower hose is cold ant upper is hot, change the t stat. If problem continues then it's likely that the radiator is still obstructed and needs to be replaced (sometimes flushing will simply go around internal stoppage).
