P2181 is a overheating engine.
Bad fan themoswitch, temp sensor themostat water pump impeller fan motor or fuse on battery
check to see if fans work by turning on Air Conditioner (fans should run with A/C on). Turn A/C off, warm engine, check to see if fans come on, if they do NOT it may be thermo switch on radiator on lower left side, has 3 wire plug, takes 1-1/8" wrench/socket to remove. This thermo switch controls fans when temp reaches 195F, if fans do not come on at engine temp 190-195F try replace switch VW part number: 1J0-959--481-A You can verify if the switch is bad by shorting wire 1 and 2 (fans should come on when jumpered).

SOURCE: 97 chrysler lhs overheats
Head gaskets don't cause overheating Usually they are a result of overheating. If the headgasket is bad one wil get leaking into the cylinders of coolant,which wil show up as milky oil.Like some one else stated ; have the radiator rodded out,(cleaned and fluashed).

I had a 1998 Dodge Ram that Overheated alot. I changed the Radiators and Thermostats a couple of times. I finally pulled the water pump and found the impellers had been eaten away by electrolysis. I am not saying this is your problem but it is worth a shot. You can check for electrolysis with a voltmeter put one probe on the negative battery terminal and the other in the coolant. You want a reading of less than 0.2 volts.

I have a 2004 4.7 dodge ram that the coolant gauge goes to 3/4 when towing my bass boat in the afternoons on hot days,I had the water pump replaced because it was wobbling at the pulley,covered under 7/70 power train.Acouple of weeks later towing again had the same problem,the turn on the heater and all is well after 2 to 3 minutes,replaced thermostat and saved and re-used coolant dealer put in and problem still there.At this point I contacted the techs at the dealer and talked with them and we all agreed radiator.Removed the radiator and took to rad shop and had it checked,found radiator plugging up,Now as to why.The antifreeze that chrysler uses is a HOAT type antifreeze,hybrid organic acid technology,with silicates and friction modifiers,this antifreeze CANNOT BE USED WITH TAP WATER OR WELL WATER OF ANY KIND,as it states in the owners manual.Only 1 dealer in this area apparently knows this but this is not the dealer that i took it to.The silicates in this antifreeze when mixed with the wrong water type will seperate and and become heavier and then start to gel and plug the passages in the radiator.This truck only has 46,443 miles on it and mostly used just to tow the boat.Hope this helps everyone else with this problem.Will be contacting Chrysler about this and the improper repairs that are being performed at their dealerships.Lester Atkins.email@example.com.
