I took the bottom radiator hose off and drained most of it that way then put the hose back on after. If the hose looks old then it should be replaced. Thake the rad cap off when you take the rad hose off and it will drain better.

Should be a drain plug at the bottom of the radiator, if not you can disconnect the lower rad hose at the radiator. Remove filler cap to allow air in as coolant drains. Catch and dispose of drained coolant as it is sweet and animals will drink it and die

Radiators do not "go out". They leak or they don't... that's it. You wasted money changing a radiator if you aren't loosing coolant. The thermostat (~$10) is all you needed to change.

Oil in coolant reservoir 1995 dodge 5.9 gas no coolant in oil no white smoke


Usually a leaking head gasket if its not transmission fluid.
The gasket can leak oil into the coolant without leaking coolant into the cylinders.
You might also want to check and see if you have an engine oil cooler running thru the radiator.

I had his problem a few days ago, it happened because my thermostat housing was leaking coolant. I changed it out and refilled the coolant. Heats like a champ now and it only cost me 50 bucks and an hour of my time. I would suggest first of all checking your coolant level.

Overheating


Hi. I have put together a guide to help you with this replacement of the thermostat.


Step1 Raise your DodgeIntrepid with a jack and lower onto jack stands, or use wheel ramps.Disconnect the negative cable from the battery. Open the drain plug atthe bottom of the radiator and drain the coolant into a suitablecontainer. Reuse the coolant if relatively new and clean. Step2Follow the upper radiator hose to the thermostat housing in all enginetypes except the 2.7L. In Intrepids with 2.7L engines, follow the lowerradiator hose to the thermostat housing. Loosen the hose clamp at theend of the radiator hose with a screwdriver and pull the hose off thethermostat housing. Step3Unbolt the two bolts holding the thermostat housing cover on and pulloff the cover. In 2.7L Intrepid engines, it is easier to gain access tothe thermostat housing behind the alternator by working from beneath the engine. Step4Note the position of the old thermostat and remove. Install the newthermostat with the spring-side facing into the engine. Clean any oldgasket residue from inside the thermostat housing cover. Install thenew thermostat gasket. Step5Reinstall the thermostat housing cover and tighten bolts to 105inch/pounds. Reattach the radiator hose and tighten the hose clamp.Refill the radiator with reserve or new coolant. Reattach the negativebattery cable. Step6 Start your DodgeIntrepid and allow it to run with the heater on high until it reachesnormal operating temperature. Check radiator hose for leaks and tightenthe hose clamp to stop any leaks, if necessary.

  • Removethe alternator drive belt and bolts holding the alternator in place andset the alternator aside for easiest access to the thermostat in DodgeIntrepid 2.7L engines, if desired.
  • Don't drain the coolant from your Dodge Intrepid while the engine is hot.
Please rate and god bless.
