you have to install a bypass filler in the smaller hose that comes off the thermostat housing,and fill it from there first with a hose,then fill the pressure bottle and start the motor and bleed the air out.To make it easier you can pull the upper rad hose and fill it first.

SOURCE: overheating

then the water pump must be bad in it .Take the rad cap off and rev motor up if it goes down the the pump is working if it spays of look at the head gasket being damaged .Check and make sure spark plugs are not wet either if one is soaked signs of a leaky head gasket

When the car is completely cool,check the electric fan(s) for smooth rotation.

Clean/check/change the thermo sensor,contact and wire.

===

Excavate air pocket in coolant system / check for head gasket leak

This test will kill two birds with one stone.

===

MAKE SURE THE COOLANT SYSTEM and ENGINE IS COLD!

RAN THIS TEST IN A WELL VENTILATED AREA ONLY!

You will spill some coolant during this air pocket purge test.......BE KIND TO THE ENVIRONMENT and ANIMAL please clean up after the test!

===

Put the front end on a pair of ramp or park your car on a VERY STEEP HILL (radiator facing top of the hill) .

Top of the coolant reserve tank

Let it ran for 10-15 minutes.

Monitor for air pockets escaping from coolant reserve tank.

Small amount of bubbles is OK at 1-5 minute mark

After the thermostat open up (after 195 F warm up) at
5-12 minute mark or after high idle you should see less bubbles.

If you do not see any in rush of bubbles then your thermostat may be partially stuck or rusted badly inside the thermostat hosing.

Give the thermostat host few gentle taps.

If you see larger bubbles surfacing after 15 minutes then should do a hydrocarbon (HC) dye test to test for potential head gasket leak.

Let engine cold down and top off coolant reserve tank.

Start monitor for coolant lost

===

A coolant flush is require every 2 years or 24,000 miles.

I recommend the thermostat that has a relief pop-let to reduce the change of burst radiator and coolant hoses.

Make sure you get a new thermostat gasket,black RTV and fresh coolant for the job.

Yes, you could replace just the heads, bu i don't think they are the problem - it's much more likely that the head gaskets have failed , they are the ones that you should replace first.

My 1997 Dodge Intrepid overheats. I've replaced the thermostat, and it continues to overheat. I noticed adjacent to one of the radiator hoses, a ribbed hose that is split. Could this cause the car to...


Now that you've eliminated the thermostat, it could be a number of other things. Don't drive the car too far until you've fixed the overheating problem - overheating can destroy an engine.

That split ribbed hose you see is plastic wire loom - it carries and protects electrical wires, and is not the cause of overheating.

1. Low coolant level
2. Radiator hose split/cracked, causing low coolant level.
3. Head Gasket - leaking, causing low coolant level
4. Thermostat - stuck closed (you eliminated this possibility)
5. Radiator cap - worn/damaged
6. Radiator fins - obstructed by debris/cardboard
7. Water Pump belt - missing/broken
8. Heater Core - leaking, causing low coolant level
9. Intake Manifold Gasket - leaking, worn, damaged
10. Radiator Fan Relay - faulty
11. Radiator Fan Blade - broken, missing
12. Radiator Fan Sensor/Switch - faulty
13. Water Pump - leaking, causing low coolant level
14. Radiator Fan Motor - faulty

My primary suspects would be Rad Fan Relay (#10), and
Rad Fan Switch (#12).

The tempature light came on and the car started smokeing


You may have a busted radiator hose, or a leak somewhere. Overheating can also be caused by a clogged up radiator. The sypmtoms of clogged radiator is overheating at higher engine speeds, such freeway driving, but street driving is okay. The first thing you should be concerned right now is do not use the car untill the overheating problem is fixed, because overheating will surely damage the engine. Second, check to determine if there is no major damage to the engine at this point. Check your oil conditions. If its milky in color, which I hope is not. If it is milky in color thats a major repair, that cost a lot of money. I hope that everything is still okay on the engine, get the overheating problem fixed first which is a lot cheaper than replacing a bad engine, before you use the car again. Hope this is helpfull for you.

Fill up the cooling system and start the jeep. Let the jeep get at operating temp with the radiator cap off. If the coolant level goes down, add more. Keep your eye on the radiator level and see if any bubbles appear while the car is running. DON'T keep your head over the filler neck, if you do see alot of bubbles or air bubbles, you could have a bad headgasket.
