I have a 2001 dodge durango 4.7 v8 and I just replaced the radiator , exirliry water pump and regular water pump as well as 5 thermostats my truck is still over heating blowing ice cold air for heat and...


Have you checked the temperature sending unit? It reads the temp of your engine and sends the information to the engine to open or close thermostat. If it is not functioning properly it may not be having the thermostat open. Leading to overheating. I hope I could be of some help to you.

2000 durango won't blow hot heat, temp is 210 degrees, replaced thermistat


what motor? i have a dodge ram 4x4 with a 5.9 and the thermostat is rated at 195. if you havent noticed any coolant loss, its not your heater core. try bleeding the system (starting the car with the radiator cap off, and then filling with antifreeze after the thermostat opens up) because sometimes air caught in your system will do that.

2001 Dodge Ram 1500, the heater is blowing cold air, however, the slower you go the warmer it gets and vice versa.


Is the engine coolant temp also low (if you have a gauge)? Your symptoms suggest the engine coolant thermostat is missing or stuck open. With unrestricted coolant flow through the radiator higher speeds mean more airflow and cooler coolant temps.

Replacing the thermostat is a simple, inexpensive fix. Hope that's your problem.

2001 dodge durango, when the weather is real cold


have the ECT checked,
Engine coolant temperature,lets the computer know whether it should push more fuel thru for cold mornings ,
the sensor could be telling the computer that your engine temp is 75 degrees,means less fuel being pushed

2001 Dodge Durango 4.7 automatic . put in new radiator new thermostat hoses and cap , water pump is good as well , still runs hot water keeps flowing out of where the cap goes . No water in oil and no oil...


sadly it sounds like you have a blown head gasket...Does the coolant  smell like exhaust?  I hope you don't but, everything points in that direction.  Try bleeding the coolant system.

Have a 2001 Dodge Durango. Temp is hot, coolant is cold. Replaced thermostat still running hot 2001 durango stuck in 4 wheel drive. 2 wheel drive blinks


If you havent already, leave the radiator cap off of your radiator while you start the vehicle. Be sure the engine is cold, you could get hurt if not because the coolant will build up pressure. If the cap is off, no pressure will build. Wait a while for the vehicle to heat up, look in the opening, and see if the coolant is flowing. If so, could be a bad fan, or gummed up radiator......if NOT your turbine on your water pump could be bad, OR, by chance, the thermostat is not working.

THEROMSTAT/ 2002 DODGE DURANGO???


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

Heat 2001 dodge durango


a bad heater core will just leak. it could leak alot. do you ever smell antifreeze? check the coolant level. it can get pretty low before it will overheat. the thermostat should be ok but there could be corrosion. when you had the water pump replaced was the cooling system flushed? 2001, its probably due for a flush. what coolant does it take? (green or orange)

Engine runs hot on 2001 Stratus R/T 3.0L V6


Hello, as previously suggested by my collegue it appears you have an air lock. Have you tried parking the vehicle on level ground, from cold with radiator cap off start the car and leave it idling. Make sure the fluid/coolant levels are o.k. and let the engine reach operating temp. Keep some warm water handy and watch/listen the water/coolant system (Keep a safe/sensible distance from radiator) hopefully after a while the system will bubble and boil up let it settle for a few seconds and then top up with very warm water do this until it hopefully stops belching out of radiator. Replace cap and hopefully top and bottom hoses will be warm. Oh! nearly forgot keep all heater controls on hot with blower on full..(Inside the vehicle)
Finally I'm not joshing but is the thermostat in the right way round and functioning correctly? to test drop it in some boiling water it should open almost immeadiatly.
sorry for the epic but I'm here to help and hopefully save you time and money.
Good luck and a Happy New Year to you and your family!
