How do i change the thermostat on a 2001 dodge ram 1500 v8 5.2?

The A/c condenser should be condensating under the hood where the condenser is. if you truck isnt getting warm the water wont get warm, sounds like you have a leaky heater core. also the thermostat is where the upper radiator hose goes into the intake manifold. simply drain a about half the wate rout of the red, remove the hose clamp and the hose, the remove the two botls that secure the thermostat houseing, installation is reverse, be sure to use a gasket and place a small film of RTV, emphasis on film, not a bead. on the gasket.

Replace radiator in dodge durando 2001

If you know for a fact it's the radiator, then replace it. If it's leaking, has been damaged in an accident etc. If there are no visible leaks, replace the thermostat and thermostat housing gasket first. If it still overheats, or is losing water, check and if necessary repalce the water pump. If the water pump is good, then check the heater core (should be under the dash inside on the passenger side) and you may need to remove some things (heater vents) to get to it. If this is not the problem, then drain the radiator and block, and put the new radiator in.

If you are overheating, and all cooling systems are good, and you are losing water then you may have a blown headgasket. Do Not drive the vehicle. Have the head(s) and block checked thoroughly for cracks and have the head gaskets replace (both of them).

Check the oil and if it has a milky look to it, (white/greyish color) then you have a blown head gasket.

Thank you,

Keeps over heating after five or ten minutes of use. have replaced water pump and thermostat. electric fan seems to be operating normally

it seems like damaged cylinder head gasket, check for water in oil/oil in water, water loss.. replace gasket and check cylinder head pressure

This could be a multitude of things:

Stuck closed thermostat.

Cooling fan not coming on.

Clogged radiator.

Low on coolant.

Water pump failing/leaking.

Head gasket blown, leaking exhaust into antifreeze.

Clogged catalytic converter.

Thermostat: If the Van heats up, then feel the upper radiator hose. If it's cold, then your thermostat is closed. Replace thermostat.

Coolant: If low, simply fill with distilled water and coolant. Low levels will let engine over heat.

Radiator: If there are cold-to-the-touch spots on the radiator after it should be warmed up, then a clogged is probably occuring. Have radiator flushed.

Head Gasket: If you smell exhaust fumes in your coolant reservois tank, then you got a blown head gasket.

Cat Converter: Only can be tested if off the car. Or you could try a non-contact thermometer. These are also good to testing cold spot on radiator or if thermostats are open.

Cooling fan: If mechanical it'll be spinning. If electrical, it should come on automatically with the A/C, or when it gets hot.

Water pump: Will be leaking from the front if it needs replaced. On a van, it's a tough job.

Good luck!

Heat 2001 dodge durango

a bad heater core will just leak. it could leak alot. do you ever smell antifreeze? check the coolant level. it can get pretty low before it will overheat. the thermostat should be ok but there could be corrosion. when you had the water pump replaced was the cooling system flushed? 2001, its probably due for a flush. what coolant does it take? (green or orange)
