Make sure when you add coolant to system, that you have heater running while filling it and be sure to bleed all air out of system. Keep a real close eye on coolant level for a while as you may have caused worse damage, and if you keep having to add coolant. It would also be smart to change thermostat before refilling system, but if not, keep a close eye on temperature gauge for a while to make sure it doesn't go too high, or jump erratically from cold to hot, indicating faulty thermostat. Check oil often as well.

Will crank but wont start


When an engine overheats, they should be shut off immediatly when any warning lights come on, or the temp. gauge reads extremly high. At this point, under extreme heat, your valves will heat up, get soft and bend. Your pistons will melt holes through them and your rings will break. Depending on how long the engine was ran in an overheated condition, your might have an engine with NO OR LOW COMPRESSION.

Check the water level. If the water is low it will not allow water into the heater core to produce heat. If there is water keep an eye on your temperature gauge It should reach at least 140 to 170 degrees. If it is staying colder than that you have a stuck thermostat which is allowing the water to flow to much and not let the engine warm up. The only other solution is if the fan is not working properly replace the fan relay for you blower.

Is there a thermostat shut off switch . car runs


The amount that it gets hot is a clue but theres no shut off switch. It's possible that the car is over heating and the temp gauge does'nt have enought water over it to report the problem. once the cooling system is cleared as it's full circulating and the fan will come on when it's hot ( disconnect the temp. switch on the therostate cover on the top of the transmission, ( the stat is in the lower hose ) with it disconnected and the key on the fan should be on and connected f till it's real hot. The crank senser or distrubutor module can can too hot and shut down too

Sounds to me like your charging system failed and you now have a dead battery.
You will likely need to replace your alternator.

Heat blow cold air


most likely a problem with the water circulation around the heater core. if you've never used the heater, some vehicles have a hot water shut-off valve for the heater hoses. another possibility is the thermostat had been removed. the easiest way is to start the vehicle and slowly allow it to warm up monitoring the water temperature. it should heat up to normal water temperature, then heat up and then drop down. the thermostat is usually around 180 degrees or 192 degrees. it allows the water around the engine block to heat up then once it reaches 180 or whatever it opens up circulating the cooler water from the radiator into the engine block and pushing the hotter water into the radiator to cool off. no thermostat, then the water keeps constantly circulating not allowing it to properly heat up. this can slow the heater down, lower fuel economy, alot of things especially in the winter driving...

98 dodge dakota slt 318. no heat, low operating temp


First thing first, turn off the engine wait for 15 - 20 mints, open the radiator cap and fill it up to the top then start the engine and see if it needs more water adn add as needed, then wait till you ca see the water circulating in the radiator now instead of corculating if it starts boiling out shut the engine replace the thermostat and do the whole thing again.

unless there is water in the engine the gauge will not be able to show the actual temp of the engine, so always malke sure you have water / antifreeze
