Question about Dodge Durango

4 Answers

I replaced my radiator cap on my 2002 Dodge Durango because antifreeze was coming out of it in small amounts. Now that I replaced my radiator cap, my car heater doesn't work and the temp gauge is running just over the 1/2 way mark. NO leaking problems anymore though

I have the same problem. I have air, just no heat! 1999 Dodge Durango 5.2 Liter 4X4. When on low setting for the dash, it tries to blow warm.

You either have to replace the thermostat or the water pump might be going south.. take your car to agarage to get it fixed or do it yourself if you are mechanically inclined..goodluck..

Okay, is all the air out , if so then remove heater hoses going to heatercore and back flush core with a waterhose, go both ways into core then connect hoses and you should have heat, try that good luck.

How to add antifreeze 2002 dodge intrepid


Open the container of antifreeze. Using a separate EMPTY gallon-size container, pour out HALF of the contents into the empty container, making sure not to spill any. Now, FILL the newly filled container with tap water. Fill the rest of the antifreeze with water, also. Now, you are ready to add antifreeze to your vehicle! Simply locate the radiator cap, (Don't touch it if it's hot!!) and unscrew it. Pour the desired amount of your mixed antifreeze into the radiator. Remember not to do this without proper knowledge!

Dodge durango 2004 hemi over heating after all the repairs i have done new radiator,water pump hoses , clutch fan, radiator cap and 3 different thermostats,


The cooling system has to be bleed of air.To do this locate the bleeder on the coolant inlet on engine. Remove the bleeder and the radiator cap, fill with coolant until there are no more air bubbles coming out of bleeder. Top off resivor close bleeder replace cap. Start and let it get to normal operating temp, If all is good now you are finished. If it still overheats let it cool off until there is no pressure on upper hose .Carefully remove cap and repeat bleeding process

Added antifreeze and my 2002 dodge caravan is still overheating....the antifreeze did not move from the reservoir....what could be causing this??!! Help!


When it is cool, take the cap off the radiator. See if you can see antifreeze. If you cannot, pour it directly into the radiator.

2002 Dodge Stratus - I want to add water and antifreeze but when I try to turn the radiator cap, it turns but wont come off. Were do I add fluid?


The correct place to add engine coolant is the radiator's expansion tank. It should be a large tank under the hood with a cap that says "Coolant". The tanks will also have an Add and FULL level. Fill this tank when the engine has cooled to the FULL level. As for the radiator cap, it should come off when pressed down with hand pressure and at the same time turned in a counter clockwise rotation. DO NOT open the radiator cap when the engine is hot or at operating temperatures.

Antifreeze is leaking out of the bottom of the radiator in my 2002 dodge durango. What should I do to solve and fix the leak


Leaky antifreeze is one of my pet peeves........let's hope that this radiator was leaking due to age....not head gasket failure......The correct way to do the leak repair would be to either replace the radiator or solder it...repair it. If you have the mechanical knowledge of performing a block test then by all means do it before you invest any thing else into it. if not then have a shop do a block test(to test for a failed head gasket) If the block test passes with flying colors then its time to replace that radiator. If you can do it yourself GREAT!!!! make sure ya flush that system also!!! If you can't afford a radiator right now a temporary fix is called Bar's leak...sold at autoparts stores....seals up smaller leaks and such fairly nicely.....but don't think its a PERMANET repair.... well....HOPE I HELPED!!!!

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
