Question about 2005 Chrysler 300
It is possible you have a defective water pump. This happens all too often. I would first suggest checking the serpentine belt for the correct tension and for defects such as glazing or debris in the groves of the belt. This is called 'pilling' and can cause the belt to slap around the pulleys failing to make correct operational friction with one or more component pulleys and/or tension adjusters. At different rpms you may see the issue come and go. Also check the pressure relief cap and hose on the overflow / fill reservoir tank. DO NOT EVER ADD RADIATOR STOP LEAK OR ANY TYPE OF HEAD GASKET OR BLOCK SEALER. THESE PRODUCTS STAY IN YOUR ENGINE AND SHORTEN ITS LIFE.

Was the thermostat placed in the thermostat housing correctly? The spring end goes inside the housing toward the engine. Has the cooling system ever been back flushed? Take a flashlight and look inside the radiator (make sure radiator/engine is cold!) you may need to remove a little of the coolant, and look to see if the fins appear to be full of a white deposit. Possibility the radiator may be clogged .

If you fill the car with anti freeze when it is cold and start it up with the cap off and its bubbling in the radiator that fast it has a bad head gasket.You can buy a kit at the parts store to confirm this.It made to detect hydro carbins in the coolant.Let me know what you find out Thanks...Dan

If your thermostat has been replaced with the proper one your engine is heating up.
The problem then becomes twofold.
The amount of coolant/antifreeze flowing through the heater core or a problem with the airflow over the core inside the heater plenum assembly.
I would check for coolant flow through the core first.
If the heat feels like it is warmer coming out an outlet with the fan on a low setting rather than a high one your heater core isn't flowing enough.
To verify you can also check the two hoses that go through the firewall to your heater core once the vehicle has been warmed up, feel the temperature difference between the two. They should both be almost hot enough not to hang on to and close to equal temperature. A hand held temperature gun is really handy for doing this.
If one is hotter than the other your heater core has restricted flow and will need to be flushed or replaced.
Next is to check your temperature blend door operation.
Move the control to hot and cool and listen for the door to move and feel for the temperature to change, if it does at all. The fan on low setting is best to listen and feel temperature changes.
If you feel a temperature change or hear the door thump at each end of it's travel it is OK.
If you have more questions on this problem leave it in "add a comment" and I will return your question.

You have still got air in the system.Remove the Feed back pipe from the header tank and wait for all the air to come out while the engine is running making sure you are toping up the header tank at the same time Dont allow header tank to run dry while doing this.Good luck
