Question about 2000 Dodge Durango
Our Durango had a new radiator put in it before we bough it. Temp over 75 deg. It over heats. We have replaced every thing in the cooling system. Even a new water pump. Hoses ,caps thermostat ,had all the system flushed out 3 times.it only heats up in warmer weather. We r think they put the wrong size radiator in it.
When you fill the radiator, did you make sure the car heater was set to Full Hot? If not, there could be an airlock in the water system. This can give the symptoms you describe.

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.

Did you burp the air out of the system after changing those parts? It sounds like the thermostat isn't opening which is why the lower hose is still cold. Click my screenname, go to my tips and tricks, and choose the one about burping the cooling system - it may help you out.

If it is fogging your windows, you have a leaking heater core. Dash removal is required to fix it.
