Question about 2004 Dodge Durango
First thing I would check is the cooling fan. While running in your driveway allow the car to warm sufficently. The fan should kick on. If it isnt running check the fuse located on the driver side kick panel first. There is also a relay under the hood inside a black box on the right hand hand if facing the engine.
As far as the coolant goes. make sure the thermostat is open when you fill with coolant. If it isnt you only fill the reservoir and then when the thermostat opens it draws down water through the engine making it low again. Same deal, just allow the car to warm up with the radiator cap off. You should see the water swirling if the thermostat is open. SHoudl open around 180 to 190 dpending on which yo9u have installed. Be very careful not to open the cap under pressure. Safe thing to do is squueze the top radiator hot to see if its rigid or soft. If it rigid (tight) dont dare open the radiator cap. If you can aqueeze it easily go and and half turn the cap to allow the pressure to vent just to be safe then remove it al the way. Be caeful because sometimes water will sure out. Be sure to replace the cap prior to shutting the engine off or else if will surge water out whn the engine stops. Good luck and be safe.
