Question about 1999 Plymouth Breeze
Overheats while driving for just a few mins going down the road or sitting idle. No leaking while driving or sitting idle, and oil is fine (had changed twice no signs of any problems). It has been sitting for months now and I'm going to start trying to fix it. Going to start with the thermostat and see where that gets me. Any suggestions would be must appreciated!
Check to see if the electric radiator fan works, run the car and turn on the a/c on high to see if the radiator fan comes on. If it doesn't come on then check the fuses and relay to the fan and wire harness to the fan. Check the radiator it self, check the out side to make sure the heat exchange finns are not plugged up with winter mud and dirt, and the inside look clean and corroded or plugged with rust.
If that is ok then change the thermostat and the hose, a soft hose will collapse and restrict the flow of antifreeze. The last cause would be a bad water pump and not pushing the antifreeze as much as it should.
Good luck and hope this helps.
