Check the upper radiator hose by touching it after you have run the car for awhile to see if it is hot. If so then the water is circulating in the system, if not then the upper radiator hose will be cold and the thermostat is stuck. replace the thermostat and your problem will fixed. Be sure to disconnect the negative ground wire from battery before you attempt to work on coolant system. hope this will help you.

2001 dodge intrepid running hot and leaking is it the radiator hose or the radiator


I would not know without looking at it in person.
A mechanic would use a pressure tester to pressurize the cooling system then check for leaks.

1999 dodge intrepid loseing coolent changed water pump now PO 172 code come s on and runs rough at idel changed plugs,wires,checked timeing marks,vacum leaks Help driving me nuts thank you Tom


Hi,
You need to do a cylinder leakage test. It sounds like you may have a head gasket not sealing properly, and this is where your water loss is going and is causing the engine to run rough also.
A quick test is to remove the radiator cap when the engine is cool, then run the engine till it gets hot and when the water is hot you should start to see the water running along in the radiator. Make sure it is full and make sure no bubbling and squirting of water from the radiator happens. If this happens then it is a good sign that your head gasket needs replacing.
Let me know if you want more information.
Thanks
Jason

I have a 2001 dodge intrepid rt, it runs hot and will cut off. it doesnt leak any thing and just started runnng hot


The first thing to check when it gets too hot is to make sure the electric fan is working. If it's not, then that is the problem. If it's working, then check the following.
If the radiator and overflow tank are topped off and not low, then change the thermostat. It's most likely sticking. Very common problem and a cheap/easy repair.

2001 Dodge Intrepid overheating - blown engine?


The timing belt drives the water pump so it would be advisable to replace the timing belt if you replace the pump and visa versa. The timing belt should have been replaced at 105,000 miles and if you did replace it at that time, then I would not replace it again unless it is soaked in leaking coolant. If not, then for sure replace it. Replace the tensioner if it is defective. You need to find a good mechanic that is not just guessing as to what is wrong. If you have no apparent external leak and you are seeing a milky substance on the underside of the oil cap, you may have a blown head gasket. Do you see white smoke coming from the exhaust? Do you see air bubbles escaping from the radiator with the cap off and the engine running? If so you have a blown head gasket or cracked head. A compression test will help determine this one way or the other. A dye test on the cooling system will also help tell you where the coolant is leaking. If the water pump is bad it should be leaking. 130,000 miles is not that much on a modern engine. This engine will easily last 200,000 miles if maintained properly. So it is worth repairing, but that is your decision. You just need to find a good mechanic that actually knows what they are doing.

1997 dodge intrepid running hot!


check first if you are loosing water or cooling fluids on your radiator. There may be a leak or the radiator cap may no longer prevent the steam from escaping. check the radiator fans if they are turning. You can check the fan if it is working by removing the temp sensor at the lower radiator hose. The fan should turn on by then.

97 dodge Intrepid with Cooling Problem


If you've already tested the stat by placing it in very hot water to verify that it does open ,then it might be that the high pressure reservoir cap leaks. With the engine cold, check the under side of the cap for cracks in its gasket . My 3.5L had a frozen stat and a leaking cap at the same time however the cap problem wasn't evident until I replaced the stat. By the way - It's always a good idea to test new thermostats before installing them . I had to learn that the hard way.
