SOURCE: Leaking coolant

Highly unlikely that is the case more likely it is the radiator leaking onto the fan. Also check the upper hose to make sure that it doesnt have a pin hole in it. Good luck and dont forget to rate.

SOURCE: Coolant leak That can't be found

The leak can be from a number of places. The radiator may be leaking, a freeze out plug on the block, a crack in the block, the head gasket, etc. The only way to figure it out is to carefully check under and above the engine. You can purchase a small mirror with an extending handle to view the difficult tight areas (available at most auto parts stores). The reservoir can even have a split in it where it's difficult to see, like in the bottom, or up against the fender. Check the hose from the bottle also. So pick up a mirror, and start your detective work. Since it leaks so quickly, it should be pretty easy to track down. When you go under the car, make sure wheels are blocked, and car is on safety stands. Good luck, let me know what you find.

SOURCE: my 2001 dodge durango is overheating an leaking coolant from a round plug type thing in the corner on the passenger side near the windshield

What exactly is the "round plug type thing" near the firewall [passenger side]? Is it a sensor of some type? I, too, have a coolant leak here on my 2001 Durango; its tucked in rather tightly near the hood/firewall corner. My electric fan is not kicking on; vehicle overheated tonight. (4.7 liter)

2002 dodge intrepid.if water pump is leaking will this car run hot


If you lose sufficient radiator coolant any water cooled engine will overheat as will yours. You do not need to lose very much coolant for an overheating condition to occur.

If you allow the engine to run in an overheated condition you WILL cause very expensive engine damage many times what it will cost you to have a new water pump and new WP gasket fitted.

What damage can be caused to a vehicle engine overheats


Hi Anonymous,
It probably depends how far you drove after the car overheated. It is extremely bad news to drive an overheated car.
Typically the head gasket (between the cylinder head and the engine block) will warp when the coolant goes dry and the engine overheats. And then it leaks - both on the outside of the engine block and with big white smoke out the tailpipe.
Replacing the head gasket is doable but expensive.
But if you don't see any leaks on the block or white smoke you may have dodged a bullet.
Hope this helps,
Bud

Why is my dodge ram overheating?


Sensor would just cause a check engine light and radiator caps hardly ever go bad. It's possible you put the thermostat in upside down. Also possible that a hose is clogged. More than likely you have a massive air bubble trapped in the engine block.

1987 Dooge Ram 2.6 Overheating -- tried replacing


One note- many thermostat elements can be installed backwards and while they will function, they don't allow full flow of the coolant like that.
Dunno what the bolt might be for-
Another possibility is a blown head gasket; if these fail between any combustion chamber and a coolant path, it will heat the devil out of coolant and generally cause exhaust fumes in bubbles in the cooling system. You can check for signs of rust on your plugs since the cooling engine will **** in coolant and that will leave deposits. Also check your coolant for any signs of a milkiness and your oil for signs it is turning into hand-lotion.

2004 dodge ram overheating??


Hi,
Engine overheating?
1. Coolant level at cold
2. Coolant leak check for loss of, during "not hot" running condition. (water pump, hoses)
3. Replace the thermostat. It's inexpensive and easy enough to do.

Hope this helps... Good luck!

Overheating/Loss of power


Unless water pump bearing is loose or noisy or the pump is leaking, that's not your problem. Have the system flushed. Thermostat is also likely not the problem but with repeated overheats or near-overheats it will become unreliable so change it as a precaution.
