What temp rating is the thermostat you bought ? there are 3 I believe for your truck, check this and if it is rated below 200 degrees then I would re-flush and add new anti-freeze 50/50.

My 97, 5.2 runs 200 without AC, if I turn on AC, it goes to 220. Replaced clutch fan, thermostat, water pump, and new cap. Backflushed block and radiator. No results. Why so hot? Only 92K on unit.


dodges run like that. if your worried put a 180 degree thermostat in. maybe even a 160 . wont hurt engine or fuel mileage . my 99 dodge ram 1500 sport runs fine with 160 degree one. hope it helped , good luck

I have a 1996 dodge ram 1500 running hot i have replaced water pump, radiator, thermostat, radiator cap, and checked all hoses and ran a block tester i am leaking no water why is it running hot water...


Sounds like u have an air bubble. Easiest way to get that out is jack the frt of the truck up as high as u can get it with the radiator cap off and run it

I filled the cooling system and my 97 ram still wants to run hot over 200


when was the last time you changed out your thermostat and what temperature thermostat did you put in if it was 195 degree your not running to hot at 200 did you flush out your system clean it real good.
check your drive belt (fan) not worn out or to loose for water pump, radiator core blocked or grille dirty, buy or have radiator cap tested it must maintain radiator pressure also check ignition timing.

I got a 97 ram both heater hoses are cold when truck is hot


You probably have a restricted heater core. Buy a can of radiator flush and follow the directions on the can. If this doesn't work, then take both heater hoses loose at the engine an run water thru the heater hose with a garden hose. Hopefully this will clear the restriction. Hope this helps :)

Cooling system requires burp.


A large air pocket can sometimes be tricky to get rid of. The easiest way is to jack the front end up in the air with the wheels off the ground and support with jack stands, remove the radiator cap(make sure engine is cool) and allow to sit over night in this condition. The elevated front end will allow the air pocket to move to the most highest point and then escaping out the top of the radiator, after doing this procedure make sure to inspect coolant level in radiator and overflow reservoir and top off as needed.
