Do you have anti freeze in it? did you replce the radiator cap? is the fan clutch good? is the AC condensor full of bugs and the radiator? are you low on transmisson fluid? or Motor oil? all these will cause it to get hot.

No water running after i installed a new water pump on my 2000 dodge durango 5.2l


this happens a lot in pump replacements , the engine block gets air locked and wont allow water to flow thru it , theres a few methods that work , One is to remove the coolant cap and keep filling it with fresh fluid running it till engine gets hot , this open port will allow air to escape
second method is to use a pressure cap tester to simulate the pressure rise in radiator and over several pressure/release /pressure /release cycles the air will be forced out till only water remains

The radiator cap isn't getting hot and needs water to replaced frequently


radiator hose may be closing together after running for a while causing water to overflow to tank and ground

Dodge durango 2004 hemi running hot


You need a radiator. The cores are plugged. Flushing will not help and if you flushed the cooling system when coolant was filthy and rusty everything is now in radiator cores.

these cars have a water pump in the front center of the engine and when it leaks cant see it couse coolant or water runs to the back of the engine between the heads thats one but did you change the thermostat and or radiator cap? try with that first but is a good chance that you have a water pump problem.

My truck starts running hot then I turn the heater on and it blows cold air but every once in a while the heater will throw out hot air. Then the temp gauge will go down. I've check med the radiator cap...


I'd still check the thermostat. Or basically just replace it. Have you ever drained all the antifreeze and flushed the system? Good time to do both. If the hose's get real hot that doesn't really mean the thermostat open. Wouldn't they get hot even if the thermostat didnt open.? If the thermostat was stuck open you'd would have cold air and low temp gauge. Then maybe hit a pump or something and have the thermostat stick closed and have high temp. Maybe water pump. Check it when you have the belt off. Spin, pull & push the water pump pulley around. I'd replaced my water pump at about 110,000 on a '97 dodge Dakota. My 97 never had a very good heater. Always heated up more after driving. Idle never got it warmed up.

it is boiling out because it has run hot. you most likely had an air pocket in the system. try refilling coolant make sure you have heat inside if there is air you will not have heat. if still overheats may have a sticking thermostat.

Could be water pump does the electric fan cycle on off while the car is idling??? Could be the electric fan or the electric fan temp cycle sensor as well?
If everything checks ok, check for a head gasket problem?

2004 dodge ram 4.7 liter v8 overheating after having water pump replaced . temp gauge goes up but truck doesn,t act like its hot dont hear water boiling in radiator.


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.tatkins8@cox.net.
