Question about Dodge Daytona

1 Answer

My problem started with a leaking radiator. I replaced it today with a new one and was running it to warm it up to test the radiator connections. I didnt notice that i was almost out of gas. I went to accelerate the engine and it stopped running. I noticed then it was out of gas. Since then Ive put 2 1/2 gallons and still no re-start and its taking its effect on the battery. Any suggestions?

Turn the key on and off a few times until you hear the pump working you should hear a slight hum as it pressurizes and or try priming it first with a capful of gasoline as a last resort it may be possible the fuel pump has stopped working or you have no spark present test by removing a plug wire and use a screwdriver at on end not touching it yourself hold 1/2 -1/4 inches away from a ground { the block}and crank it over is there any spark ? if not let me know

My 1994 toyota camry is ovverheating even when the water pump is new and the radiator are goo, no leak the hoses are good The car is still overheated

If this happens very quickly, it is probable you have a head gasket leak to the coolant jacket. There is a simple test a mechanic can do for combustion gases in the coolant.

If the car warms up normally, then keeps getting hotter, the temp sender may be faulty, causing the radiator fans not to run when they should start. Check they do run when the engine is getting hotter.

Or, the thermostat could have failed closed, not allowing the coolant to circulate.

I have a 1981 Jeep CJ7 (Straight 6). When my jeep is running there are no leaks, but as soon as i turn it off coolant leaks from the metal pressure hose coming from the steering box. The leak is coming...

The metal hose would not have coolant in it if it connects to the steering box. That would be a power steering hose with power steering fluid. If coolant is leaking, it must be from the radiator. New radiators are not all that expensive, keep your ride good with a new radiator, or have a radiator shop seal the leak, clean and pressure test the old radiator. If any rust is in the radiator just replace it, or you will soon have new leaks.

Overheating engine

check coolant level in the radiator. Check radiator fins condition. Have a coolant system pressure test done to check for leaks. Have a flow test done on the radiator to check for blocked cores. Have a compression test done on the engine to check for head gasket or cracked head/s. Check that the fans(Electric or viscous hub ) are working. Run fault codes and check for problems that affect the tune of the engine. Check the cat converter is not blocking the exhaust. Check and test the thermostat for correct operation. That can be done by starting a cold engine and within 10 minutes of idling the top radiator hose should start to feel warm indicating that the water is circulating

Running hot after 12 minutes of operation, supposed to have been replaced (water pump, thermostat, and timimng belt, pulled radiator today, it flows but to what extent ??? I recently had the water pump...

With the engine cool, maybe in the morning. If you have some jugs to put water in fill them up, and put them someplace warm if possible, or just use hot water when your ready to work on it. Take the radiator cap off start the car let it run. (we know it gets hot in 12 mins) You should be able to see the fluid in the radiator move quite a bit after it's warm. If what I'm hoping is the problem, the radiator fluid level will drop a lot maybe as much as a third. If this happens add that warm or hot water to the radiator until almost full. It is bound to hick up a time or to so be careful as you said the temp gauge was at 220 degrees. (hot enough to melt your skin off) Give it a few more minutes as thermostat hopefully is opening and closing. After the fluid level in the radiator stays consistent, place cap on radiator. Let it cool off, how ever long it takes would be best if could wait till temp gauge is close to cold start position. Start it up and see if this helps, if they did indeed replace things, which don't always leave a lot of tool marks. Then maybe they just didn't burp/bleed the cooling system of air. So your cooling system will not work as there is no water in the block only in the radiator. This is a long shot, but only take 30 minutes, at most and a little bit of water. Hope this helps, let me know if it does.

When i start my Peugeout 206 1.6l ,the engine gets too warm very soon and the anti-boil liquid leaks from below the car.then i am to switch off & stop the car.May i get your immediate help?Thanks a...

sounds like you may have a faulty thermostat.

where the top hose from the radiator connects to the engine, there is a cast alloy cover held on with three bolts.
the thermostat is under this. just swap for a new one
i would not mess about testing it. they are fairly cheap and once replaced, you do not have to worry about it again.

as the car has already leaked some coolant, top up the cooling system with neat antifreeze,

run the car for a little while, with the heating on the highest temperature, keeping a close eye on the water level.

My 735 IL ran out of gas

the fuel pump is located in the gas tank, do you hear it pumping. electronic pumps don't like to run out of gas, the gas cools the pump.

99 Chev suburban 5.7 liter, antifreeze keeps leaking have to fill reserve and radiator evryother day, (new radiator) no white smoke, oil looks ok, cant see leak anywhere on the ground or frame??? Wheres it...

check the condition of the reserve tank and the hose from the reserve tank to the radiator for leaks if no leaks there have the Radiator cap presure tested . also this could be a air lock in the engine if the radiator is new with the engine running and the heater on hot observe the fluid level in the radiator with the cap off if it drops as it warms add more coolant this will purge the air .

Leaking radiator but when filled up with water 6mths ago was ok, now leaking again

Sometimes a very small leak will not show up on the ground 'till it gets larger. I'd have the system pressure tested, and if necessary dye tested, before the leak has an opportunity to do any damage.There are numerous places where a leak can go undetetected and other tests that can be done aside from the ones I've mentioned. a good shop will do these if normal procedures reveal nothing. .At this point, without testing everything is "suspect" 'till you find it.
good luck
