My 1989 dodge pickup only overheats going down highwa y just recently started i have replaced water pump,the thermostat and the radiator cap.i have even removed the thermostat and still building press


put the thermostat back in the right way . Check and replace the bottom radiator hose if it feels soft when cool. Old soft hoses will suck together at speed and slow down the coolant circulation. Have a flow test done on the radiator cores for partially blocked radiator.

My Dodge 2005 Ram overheats on hot days while running the AC. If I turn the heater on then it cools down. I need to know if this is a thermostat problem or if something else.


I see your post was a while ago. I hope this helps you or anyone ells having Dodge over heating issues.

I have a 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 and a 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan. I also owned a 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan. ALL of them had thermostat issues. When you replace the thermostat make certain you get the proper heat rating. If it is rated tool low, then the check engine light will trigger the code that the engine is not heating up fast enough. I also recommend going with a 'fail-safe' thermostat. These thermostats fail OPEN rather than closed. My 2002 RAM factory thermostat failed closed, built up pressure, then blew half the water out from under the radiator cap. This happened in less than 35k miles. The dealer replaced it. After a couple of years it failed again. Make sure you have 50/50 mix of anti freeze to water. This raises the boiling point of the water, makes it more efficient for cooling the engine, treats the water so it does not corrode and scale up the cooling system and helps keep the liquid from boiling off there by reducing the volume of fluid in the cooling system. Also, BOTH my 02 RAM and 05 caravan developed a leak in their radiators. They were slow leaks and I did not notice it until I did some standard checks and found the coolant was low, Most shops can run a pressure test for less than $40 to let you know if your radiator is leaking.

You should also make sure that your AC cooling fans is running. There are fuses and solenoids in the fuse box that can sometimes go out. When you AC is on this fans will turn on. If not, it could create a lot of extra heat.

1. Improper water circulation: Sometimes, eventhough you are sure that you have enough water on your radiator, your car still overheats. It might probably be that the water is cannot circulate properly, which results to improper cooling process. There are several reasons for this which you can discover by yourself. To verify if the water circulates properly, start your engine without the radiator cap. If water circulation is good, you should notice that the water pops smoothly over the top but still retains the amount. Another way to check, detach one of the ends of your radiator hose from your radiator and see if water flows continously over.
If water doesn’t circulates well, check the thermostat if it’s open. It should be open, meaning clean, and the water can pass through it.
If thermostat is clean and still the water doesn’t circulate properly, then you have to check the water pump. That’s probably where the problem is. A little leak on the pump will cause improper flow of water through the radiator system.
If you are sure that the problem is not about water circulation, another thing you can consider is check the engine oil. Very low amount of oil can cause greater friction of the mechanical system of your engine. If it’s not time to change oil yet, you can add over some amount of oil until advisable amount is reached.
While we can’t be always sure about our engine, especially if it’s not new, we should be prepared when it happens. Bringing extra gallon of water in your trunk will surely help.

Replacing your thermostat on a 1993 dodge ram 50 pickup which end goes up


A water thermostat will have a brass plug, the brass plug goes down into the housing. That plug is the sensor to open the t-stat when it senses the proper temp, letting coolant flow through into the rad.

Running hot all water going straight to overflow tank


Check the thermostat. If the upper hose does not feel very hot to the touch when the car is warmed up already, this indicates the thermostat is not opening, and therefore the water cannot circulate causing the overheating problem. Second possiblity is the radiator fan. If the car tends to overheat only on city driving it is a the radiator fan not coming on. This is either due to a bad radiator fan, blown fuse,bad relay, or a bad temperature sensor or temperature switch. If the car tends to overheat at highway speed, then it is the radiator being clogged up, and not letting enough water circulation when demand is at its highest which is high engine rpm.

OVERHEATING..THERMOSTAT OR WATER PUMP? M REG ESCORT.1600


dear friend:i think we should start with pressure testing the system for water leaks,if there is leaks you will loose pressure,if you reach working temp feel the top and bottom radiator hose,they should be the same temp,if not then the thermostat is faulty,if you got poor circulation then it can be the waterpump or the radiator is blocked,check airflow threw the radiator,check radiatorcap pressure,
