Question about 2002 Dodge Intrepid

1 Answer

I replaced the thermostat o a 2002 dodge intrepid 2.7 liter engine. When bleeding the system i get all air. My first thought was an airlock. I have tried everything i know how to do to get the airlock out. Still I have all air bleeding out. I have put a new thermostat in twice. Pressure bled the system. raised the vehicle. It seems as if the coolant is not circulating. any answers???

    You did make sure the water pump was spinning, didn't you? Are you sure the impeller is not broken?

Why does my 2002 dodge intrepid run hot half of the time? I replaced a hose 2 days ago that burst. Today i put 1/2 and 1/2 in the reservor, it went straight thru, but looking under the car, saw nothing...

these cars have a water pump in the front center of the engine and when it leaks cant see it couse coolant or water runs to the back of the engine between the heads thats one but did you change the thermostat and or radiator cap? try with that first but is a good chance that you have a water pump problem.

Can air in the line make my car over heat

If you're talking about engine coolant/antifreeze, yes. If you recently serviced the thermostat or radiator, you may need to bleed the air out at the systems' high point. Not sure how the Intrepid is configured, so I did a quick search. Here's a link to a good how-to for bleeding the system. How to properly bleed the cooling system DodgeIntrepid Net Forums Dodge...

Replacing thermostat

The thermostat on the 2.7L and 3.5L engines are located on the lower left side of engine, near the front. The thermostat on both engines are on the inlet side of the water pump. The thermostats have an air bleed located in the thermostat flange. The air bleed allows internal trapped air during cooling system filling to be released.

Cooling system airlocked

Airlocked? Often by pulling a line of an air buble will be relased. moving hoses so they can fill with water and the air can pass works too. You did not mention the engine you have. Mine is the 2.3, when I drained, flushed and refilled the system had no major problems. there is a air bleed line from the water outlet (under ps pump, left side of engine) to the plastic bottle, right front. the restriction is in the niple at the pastic bottle is it pluged preventing the air to bleed? I always drill a 1/16 hole in the flange of a new thermostat when replacing it, that helps the air to escape and the system to better fill. The thermostat is on the return to the engine, water pump inlet, under the exhaust manifold (not a great design)

2002 corolla randomly overheats and feels like it misfires turn the heat on and engine cools down. already replaced thermostat any ideas. no leaks 98k miles

Check for collapsing (soft) coolant hose on intake side of waterpump at engine above idle rpm.
Check condition of system pressure cap.
Check operation of cooling fan/s- fan temperature sensor switch on engine may be faulty.
Check system has correct fill of coolant and no air locks exist when re-filling- bleed off any airlocks as may be necessary.
Check radiator coolant core not blocked.

My dodge intrepid

if it is the 3.5 liter v6 then the thermostat will be at the top of the engine where the radiator hose hooks up to the engine there will be a short pipe where radiator hooks up and two or three bolts holding it to the engine it is not under the plastic intake plenum it is forward of that .
