Question about 2000 Dodge Durango

1 Answer

I have a 2000 5.9l dodge durango. The upper coolant hose with the filler on it came apart. If I put a regular coolant hose on there w/o the filler and cap, just a one piece hose, could I drive it about ten min. down the road at 55mph?

NO ,THE PRESSURE CAP MUST BE PRESENT ,or you risk blowing either a hose or a rad if the pressure builds up too much,Make a pin hole in hose then wrap some insulating tape around it and keep the speed to 30mph and stop every couple of miles and let engine cool,sahould be a problem then till you get it fixed properly

It's actually pretty easy.
Here you go:

remove fan shroud
open petcock and drain fluid (bottom corner of tank on engine side)
remove upper and lower hoses
remove tranny coolant lines
unbolt radiator and lift out. Reverse these steps to install the new one. Hope this helps.

2001 dodge durango have replaced cooling system neck-vehicle is building too much pressure blowing coolant out of filler cap-could it be thermostat causing problem?


Have you "burped" the system to get all of the trapped air out?? If you have the 4.7 motor, it helps to slightly elevate the front of the Durango.

Then, leave radiator cap off and start engine. Watch coolant level and open the system vent which is right off of the upper hose connection.

When air ceases to come out of the vent, secure it and top off coolant.

It helps to run the engine rpms up to 2-2.5 k in short bursts to help get the air out.

Make sure to have both front and rear heater systems on full heat during this process.

'02 Durango coolant doesn't seem to flow back into radiator from overflow tank. I have to open cap on radiator hose regularly to add coolant directly. Had pressure test done and replaced thermostat.


It's unusual for your coolant level to be always low. Chances are you are leaking coolant.
Also consider the possibility of a bad head gasket.

Radiator


the upper rad hose goes from the rad to the thermostate housing. this hose is @2-21/2" the lower hose same size goes from lower rad to water pump. There is a 5/8 hose from water pump to thermostate housing called bypass hose. and you have two hoses from water pump and intake to the heater core. hope this helps if not let me know thanks

THEROMSTAT/ 2002 DODGE DURANGO???


make sure engine is cool then drain coolant by opening the drain plug at bottom of radiator. remove cap from radiator so coolant will continue to drain and when coolant is down enough to pull off upper radiator hose at intake then close drain, then remove two bolts at coolant housing and remove thermostate. clean gasket material from intake and housing and replace with new gasket and thermostate tighten bolts install hose fill rad with coolant water mix 50/50 and run engine with heat on floor until gets hot and you see coolant flowing in rad, install cap

Air in cooling system


You need to remove the upper most heater hose from the heater core and raise the hose up high . Fill the rad until coolant comes out of the heater core pipe. Carefully reattach the heater hose. Fill the rad slowly allowing trapped air to escape.This may take a while. Once the rad is full put a catch basin on the floor under the rad filler neck.Start the car and let it run to operating temperature.Allow the expanding coolant fall into the basin.Once you see circulation in the rad you can slowly top the rad off.Once you do this replace the rad cap and fill the reservoir bottle 3/4 ways to the top. Shut the car off and let it cool off filling the bottle as necessary.It's a lot to do,but it works for me every time :-)
