If your spark plugs are wet that's either a blown head gasket, or a warped head, that's the only way water could get into the cylinder

Check your oil. If you have coolant in your oil you need a head gasket.

2002 chrysler 300m special overheating


Only thing I do not see in your list and the most overlooked is a new radiator cap. The radiator cap itself is extremely important to regulate the pressure in the system and just something as simple as this could be the problem. If this doesn't I would have to know more. Is the heat working? If not could indicate a clog in the heater core. When you stop does the coolant overflow into the overflow (common condition when the radiator cap) is bad. Since you have done everything it is my guess since you replaced the radiator you used the old cap.

1997 chrysler lhs...changed the thermostat and the water pump...still overheating...was told it has an air pocket...how do I fix this?


Run the car with the radiator cap loose, that will cause it to burp per say. After a day or two you can tighten the cap on the radiator back up.

My 2000 Chrysler LHS is overheating everytime i drive it..i need to replace the thermostat..but how do i go about that? and where is it located? i lost my owners manual


It isn't necessarily the thermostat that is bad. When the thermostat goes bad, it usually gets stuck in the open position, because it never closes, and it won't effect the cooling of the engine. Or should I sat the overheating of an engine. Your thermo is located on the engine at the end of the top hose, a dome shaped fitting, it is in there, but,, the overheating could be something else. Check the top of your radiator for oil floating on there, check to see if there is steam coming out the exhaust, keep an eye on the water level, check the coolant, and don't run it if it gets hot. A compression check will tell exactly what is going on in there, if it is a head gasket, usually what happens when a car starts to overheat. Hope this helps.

1997 Chrysler LHS is overheating


If when you replaced coolant you noticed taht it fills slowly, the radiator could be internally blocked. Usually it can be flushed or if really bad, replace it. Also have the radiator checked for hydrocarbons...any in there tells you that there is a head gasket problem.

Replaced cracked radiator in 2000 Chrysler LHS but car still overheating. What could be the problem?


fix the radiator first.because coolant temperature sensor need to be in antifreeze.when antifreeze get up to 190 degrees. the coolant sensor act as a thermostat.it resistance decrease then the pcm will command cooling fans to run.if antifreeze low the coolant temperature sensor not going to work. engine is going to over heat.

Replaced cracked radiator in 2000 Chrysler LHS but car still overheating. What could be the problem?


I had the same problem. My Chrysler LHS kept overheating. I had the thermostat changed out first and it didn't help. Then I had the water pump changed out and still did no good. Then changed out the radiator, still overheated. Come to find out the people that changed my thermostat put it in backwards. Evidently, the thermostats for these cars look different from all the others and people are not sure how to put them in. I took mine to a Chrysler dealer and they fixed it for me.
