Question about 1998 Plymouth Neon
I had the radiator flushed and the thermostat changed and it still runs hot. The hoses are fine, but it runs hot within about 5 minutes of me driving it. Before I got the radiator flushed and the thermostat changed, I could keep water in it and it would not run hot. What could be wrong?
Take rad cap off when cool & run it for a while with the heater on (not defrost) and top up coolant as needed in rad, about an inch or 2 from top of rad. Let it run until you see rad fan come on & off about 2 or 3 times at operating temperature. Then replace cap, top up return bottle to proper level, and try that. Probably still air in system. If that doesn't cure it, I'd look at faulty or incorrectly installed thermostat, which would be a trip to shop that installed it, if it were me.
