My 04 dodge 1500 keeps over heating when i turn the ac on or when im going up hills "why"


under maximium load your cooling system is struggling asuming you have an automatic transmission,it is cooled through the radiator,when running the ac your condenser is hot,right in front of the radiator,if your not leaking,and your anti-freeze looks bright green an clean ,and the fan or fans are working ,first change the thermostat,cheapest,remove the serpintine belt and inspect the water pump pulley,spin it by hand,try to tip it forward and backward,to see if it wobbles,it should spin smooth and quiet,if it has a chattering or growling feel,or the pulley wobbles change the pump,the only thing left is the radiator ,make sure that debri or something isnt stuck in front of it a small piece of paper is enough to restrict airflow,inspect the core is it turning green and the fins are falling out ,is the plastic shroud intact around it, lots of things could be going on ,the transmission could be low on fluid,and running hot,causing the excessive load on the radiator,disregaurd this if you have a manual.need more info to pinpoint further,hope this helps

2004 dodge ram overheating??


Hi,
Engine overheating?
1. Coolant level at cold
2. Coolant leak check for loss of, during "not hot" running condition. (water pump, hoses)
3. Replace the thermostat. It's inexpensive and easy enough to do.

Hope this helps... Good luck!

2004 Dodge 1500 4x4 with 4.7 V8 getting hot. Replaced therm, water pump and tested Radiator. Still gets hot very quick. The water is cycling thru block, but not coming back into overflow when getting hot....


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.

INSTALLED NEW WATER PUMP,STILL RUNS HOT


Just follow the big hose on top af the radiator down to where it goes into the motor,The piece it connects to is the thermostat housing,Just remove the bolts and pull it off,You will see the thermostat,Replace with new one in the same direction as the old one is setting,and bolt back together.

I have dodge ram 1500 2004 4.7 4x4.. the enginee light came on...


the codew is to detect a bad thermostat, it can also be set by a bad engine coolant temperature sensor, if you have not replaced these then I would try the ECT first.
