Question about 2003 Dodge Durango
I just got this car 2 weeks ago and exactly 7 days from purchasing it the check gauge light came on and it started overheating. Took it back to where i bought it and they replaced the thermostat. I got it at a buy here pay here place so that's prob about the most they are going to do to it. It ran well for about 4 days after getting the therm replaced but now it's doing the exact same thing. What should I do first?
I had a similar problem. How many miles does it have? This occurred at around 5 years, 50000 miles I swapped the thermostat and it still overheated. I did the cooling system flush and found the water pump needed replaced. I called the dealer and it was still under warranty, it has a 6/60000 warranty I think. It only cost me $100.

I would have the cooling system serviced, complete backflush...the radiator could be so corroded it's beyond flushing and needs to rodded out or replaced... check the fan clutch for proper operation. Check the exhaust system...a plugged converter will create to much backpressure and cause over heating.
Too many overheats and your looking at potenial engine damage.
Good luck...i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.
