Coolant filler neck is the name of the part. I found it on line. Go to dealer and buy the complete 3 piece upper hose for the radiator. Again you get all 3 sections hose from rad to filler neck,filler neck&hose from filler neck to t-stat. Not bad price about same you pay for all them individually.

Dodge Durango's are notorious for having the radiator plugged up.if your vehicle is overheating it could be the radiator. I don't know what the component mentioned is called.

The upper rad hose goes from the rad to the thermostate housing. this hose is @2-21/2" the lower hose same size goes from lower rad to water pump. There is a 5/8 hose from water pump to thermostate housing called bypass hose. and you have two hoses from water pump and intake to the heater core. hope this helps if not let me know thanks

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.?

My 2000 durango keep overheating and the hose keeps bursting. the waterpump and various other parts have been changed. The radiator does not have a leak. The pressure in the radiator is said to be fine....

if it has the 4.7L engine they crack cylinder heads and the compression from the engine put air into the cooling system you can buy a tester that you hook up to the cooling system that changes color with exhaust fumes auto parts stores can get it or stock try napa

I have a 2000 Lincoln ls v6 I replaced the upper radiator hose with thermostat housing assembly and now my heater doesn't work. What could be the problem

Hi, you probably have air in the system. Park on an incline, turn the heater on, open the radiator cap, start the engine, and let it run until the thermostat opens. Keep the radiator full and when the level stops gong down your heater should be working again.

My durango is leading water from the radiator cap

Check to make sure the cap is turned all the way closed.
After it cools down take off the cap and inspect the bottom of the cap.
If it doesn't look right, go buy a new one, its good insurance

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
