Had the same problem with my 97 dakota (3.9). I reversed flushed the heater core and the problem is solved... too much heat. Instead of flushing the heater core normally, reverse the intake and exit lines and flush. Whatever is lodged in the core's intake should be discharged.

Temp. guage indicates overheat 10 mins. from startup


Hi Reggie, I'm glad to help. TWO things I want you to check. ONE: You have changed out a lot of stuff, so you may have air trapped in the cooling system, you'll need to remove the radiator cap and let it run until your at operating temperture, while watching to make sure it doesn't overheat on your of-course. If after running the engine say 30 minutes and topping off the coolant if needed, it still runs hot. Move on to: TWO: If you have the electric fan, some do, some don't. If it is electric make sure the fan is coming on, if it doesn't come on then you have found your problem, replace the fan assembly. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Reggie!

Temperture guage going up and then down loss of coolant as well


The temp gage is going up and down due to the lost coolant, this creates air bubbles that get around the engine coolant temp sensor, air doesn't transmit heat energy very well so the gage quickly drops. Have the cooling system pressurized with a special tool to locate the source of the leak. Common area of leak is the engine coolant pump driver shaft seal. Also look for white crusty looking stains, this is dried engine coolant.

Temperature guage goes to high, but it doesn't appear that the van is overheating (no steam/fluid leaking) Radiator & thermostat were recently replaced. Guage will jump to high when idle, but...


FLUSH RADIATOR, HEATER CORE AND ENGINE BLOCK.ADD 50 / 50 ANTIFREEZE AND WATER ALSO REPLACE RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP.IF TEMPERATURE GAUGE STILL STAY HIGH THE ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR COULD BE FAULTY.

No heat , antifreez leak not visable...


A car this new should have a warranty right? the only other place for anti-freeze to go is through a blown headgasket into your oil. Pull out your oil dipstick and make sure it is not milky in color. If not check behind the engine and see if any coolant lines going into the firewall are leaking. When inside the car do you smell steaming coolant(anti-freeze) or hear gurgling? The temp gauge that stays on is the overheat indicator?

2003 Dodge truck 4.7 crew cab has over heating engine...


Two things to consider, actually 3 but if you're not hearing anything odd from the engine and you're not seeing any fluid leaking it's not your water pump. 1. it could be your fan clutch. 2. it could be your themostat, the latter being the most likely.P.S. Don't drive too far till it's fixed!!!

2003 Ford Ranger Heat Sensor


if you are referring to the coolant temp sensor and not the coolant temp switch,then yes,this sensor tells the ecm what temp the engine is at and the ecm delivers the correct amount of fuel to the vehicle.The switch in most cases just sends the signal to the guage or light.
