You may have to run the engine with the filler cap loose until the thermostat opens at 195 degrees, then finish filling the radiator.
It can be very messy.

All you need to do is Remove the POSATIVE cable from the battery for about 25 seconds then reconnect it. This will reset the computer and everything else!

SOURCE: replace thermostat in 2000 durango

If you look down on the radiator, on the left side, there is a larrge hose coming out of the radiator toward the engine. Where the hose ends there is a housing with 2 bolts. The Thermostat is found under that. Remove the 2 bolts an replace the thermostat. Unles your arms are very long and thin, you will probably need to do this from under the car.
Perfect time to flush/fill all coolant. Check and replace any needed hoses/clamps.

Front and rear blow little to no heat

If you know for sure the thermostat is working, it could be low on coolant and has air pockets in the system. Only one radiator hose should be warm until the engine reaches normal temp, and both heater hoses should be very warm.

Dodge durango has air pocket i cant get it out

Hi T, I'm guessing that your vehicle is diesel, as petrol should not give problems with air locks. Air can enter the fuel system from several places, so I suggest you check the following. The fuel line from the tank through to the filter housing. Replace the filter and if required, the complete filter housing. Check all the rubber and plastic piping for leakages, and lastly the injector pump. If there is an even misfire, you'll need to check, service and have the injector pump and injectors re-calibrated. Regards and happy new year John

2000 durango heats up climbing hills or putting load on the engine for extended periods?

there are a couple possibilities that come to mind: thermostat could be sticking (inexpensive and a good maintenance item - by a quality one, never a cheap one, and not a fail safe), the cooling system could be partially plugged, the coolant could be poor (both of these items can be cured with a cooling system flush) or these could be something restricting air flow through the radiator. good luck!

2000 durango overheating when ac is on

Try to bleed the air from the cooling system if your antifreeze level is still normal. Sometimes air pockets withing the system get trapped near the temperature gauge and give a false reading. There should be an air bleeder valve that allows this to be done while truck is running. Also check coolant hoses for any blockages or cavitation. Hope this helps.
