Question about 2005 Dodge Neon
Engine is a 2.0, is not the head or head gasket. Is this a crack in the water jacket of the engine block or could it be something different? If it\'s the block, is there an easy or temp. fix?
The 2.0 is notorious for blowing head gaskets. It could be a cracked head, but I bet it\'s the inner side of head gasket. The ongoing problem is caused by putting an aluminum head on a cast block. They just don\'t work together.

If u now have an oil leak that was not there before the repair of course they should have a look for free and show u what the problem is, and from what u say fix it for free as well, stand by your guns, if they give u the song and dance be nice but insistent.

sounds like you have done a lot with this there is a few things that you can do to ensue every thing is running right.
first if you can get a handheld thermal gun and check the temperature at the temp sensor on the radiator or block then see what it reads compared to the guage to ensure the guage is correct.
next check the temperature at both the top and the bottom of the radiatoer if there is a big difference in temps the radiator is partially blocked a radiator will increase 30 to 100 degrees if the radiator is 20 percent blocked.. also check to ensure that the radiator hoses are not collapsing.
Now ensure that you are not gettin air in the system by way of the water pump gasket or by loose hoses ok?
and finaly check to ensure that the heater core is not leaking and drawing air into the system or is clogged this will make a vehical give the overheating symptom also ok?
Let me know how this is going

i have a 3 liter that over heats and boils aver aswell. The first time this happened i could not figure it out. i changed the thermostat and tested the fan. the fan always cut in. i even took it off and hooked it strait to 12volts. i drove it around for a couple of minutes and it got hot agian. well it was hot i turned the a/c on witch should automaticly turn the fan on and it didn't turn on. after more testing i found that for some reason that the fan would work most of the time but not always. it seemed when it missed a cycle for some reason it never caught back up until the engine cooled down from being turned off. i changed the fan and it worked great. for about a month. i changed the fan and it worked again for about another month. my suggestion is head for a post. worked good for me. hhah
