1998 Dodge Ram 1500 just changed the radiator and am on my third thermostat and temp gauge is still reading 150 degrees and not going up since I put the new radiator in. Is there a by pass or something else that I should be looking for? Why is my coolant not heating up?

Why does the temperature gauge on my 1995 Chevy K2500, 5.7L read 150 degrees ?


If you replaced the SENSOR and not the gauge SENDER, there's your answer.

The SENSOR sends the computer (ECM, PCM, ECU, etc.) the engine temp so it can make the adjustments to the fuel, timing etc.

The gauge SENDER makes the gauge read what temperature the engine coolant is.

Hope the helps.

My 2001 dodge ram 1500 will not get hotter than 160 degrees. I changed the thermostat and the coolant level is fine. What else could it be?


Now thats interesting.
I assume you are using the gauge on the dash to judge the engine temp, but you also said before you have no heat. The gauge could be off, but you would know by the radiator hoses if the engine is warming up or not.
Assuming the new thermostat is not defective, the coolant would have to be bypassing it somehow.
I would want to make sure there is no air pockets in the cooling system, and see if both radiator hoses are cool.

2004 dodge ram 1500 overheating on the freeway


The 2002- 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 4.7 L. has a single core radiator with flat fins that become easily plugged with scale and other stuff floating around in your motors cooling system. Since these fins are so small about .040 of an inch good luck flushing out any clogged particles by doing a flush. Many of the online part stores have replacement radiators for less than $120.00 (Rock Auto, for example). Replace the radiator with a new unit. Make sure to flush the engine block and heater core before connecting back to new radiator. I completed this job over the past weekend in less than 3.0 hours start to finish. Have less than $220.00 in all hoses, Thermostat, Radiator and new coolant.

97 dodge ram running hot


What temp rating is the thermostat you bought ? there are 3 I believe for your truck, check this and if it is rated below 200 degrees then I would re-flush and add new anti-freeze 50/50.
