1999 Chrysler Sebring Overheating

I've run the car with and without the thermostat so I know that's not the problem. I don't see water leaking from anywhere before or after it overheats. I haven't tested the radiator for clogs yet. So what am I missing?

    Yes sir.....both high and low fans come on

    Also, I've checked the oil and it looks good. I've run the car with the radiator cap off and don't see any bubbling. When the car overheats the overflow tank is boiling. I'll test the temperature difference of the top and bottom hoses this evening.

    I heard mixing the red and green coolant will cause a clog. Is this true?

    Pulled the water pump this weekend and it was locked up tighter than a drum. Installed a new water pump and it's back on the road!

    Thanks to all the experts that commented!

Running the vehicle without a thermostat is not a check. These cars have a computer control, running it without a thermostat or one in the wrong tempertature range will not let the system operate properly.

Take the car to a mechanic and have the coolant tested for hydrocarbons. A constantly overheating vehicle may often have a blown head gasket that causes hot gases to overheat the coolant.

Hi,

This is called the water pump weep passage which is a sign that your seal in the water pump has failed.

You need to replace the water pump.

Car continues to run hot


Sounds like you have a defective water thermostat as long as nothing is seen physically leaking when it is warming up in the first 2-5 minutes.

If you are a do it yourselfer, carefully remove the thermostat without damaging the gasket.

Replace it as preventative maintenance if it has not been replaced from 50-95k miles. It can be lower but that is a good range when you replace one.
