Question about 1996 Dodge Intrepid
MY 1997 dodge intrepid is having a cooling problem and I don't know what it is. It is a 3.5L I was going down the freeway at 70mph and it ran fine untill 40 miles down the road then I seen smoke and my engine was overheating. It is not the thermostate or a hose. No Antifreeze in the oil either and has little in the radiator I need help please.
If you've already tested the stat by placing it in very hot water to verify that it does open ,then it might be that the high pressure reservoir cap leaks. With the engine cold, check the under side of the cap for cracks in its gasket . My 3.5L had a frozen stat and a leaking cap at the same time however the cap problem wasn't evident until I replaced the stat. By the way - It's always a good idea to test new thermostats before installing them . I had to learn that the hard way.
