Question about 2002 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

Overheating, we see no fluids leaking out, no heat, changed thermostat, found crack in radiator, so we replaced that and took for a test drive and about 2-3 miles in Gage starting shooting back up. A little steam coming from cap but again nothing leaking, still not heat ( no water mixed in oil / checked ) tried removing the whole thermostat just to see if it would still over heat, which it did... someone suggested air in radiator from just changing it, or something plugged up in hose, or maybe water pump?! Any ideas??? Thank you, thank you

SOURCE: overheating

Try flipping the Thermostat over. Pointed end should point towards radiator (output side)

SOURCE: Dodge 2002 Grand Caravan V6 3.3 engine overheating/no cabin heat.

Replace the bad radiator hose first.  Second- get you special formulated anti-freeze dye from the auto store and pour it into the radiator.  Third- make sure you got all the air pockets out of your system, cause the coolant system won't work with air pockets in it.  Fourth- Check for leaks by looking for the colored dye.  If it's not the radiator hose, then could possibly be a pin hole in your radiator.  Would suggest replacing all the radiator hoses at the same time while you got the coolant system disconnected, cause you don't want to have to come back and replace another hose in a few months.

SOURCE: My 1999 dodge neon is overheating and just changed

Last time I had this problem I had a cracked head. With the cap off the radiator, run the engine at idle to operating temperature. When your looking in the radiator you should see the water circulating if the water pump is working. When you say the motor is over heating, if you have fluid coming out of the over flow hose then yes you are most likely overheating, if you are just seeing the gauge indicate you are over heating you may just have a bad engine temp sensor.

It most likely is a Thermostat problem but could be a fan issue. If that the clutch in the cooling fan is stuck it will cause the motor to overheat when under a load. To check the clutch assembly, assuming you don't have Electronic fans which I don't think that motor has, with the engine off see if you can freely turn the fan assembly both directions. If it is locked going either direction the fan clutch is bad, replace it and the problem should be solved. The clutch assembly cost about $35 in most areas maybe a little more.

The coolant must operate under pressure to raise its boiling point (so it won't turn to steam.)

Replace the radiator cap with a new one.

Not sure if I am understanding you correctly or not but if you took the thermostat out and your no longer overheating all you need to do is replace the thermostat. If you are still overheating it can be a number of different things, a blockage, cracked head, bad hose, ect.... Stop leak can causes build up in the system because it is made to clog leaks. You may need to have the system flushed by a repair shop. But the thermostat seems to be your issue.

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.
