SOURCE: 2002 dodge 1500 Changed radiator, thermostat, and hoses. No heat

Why was radiator replaced?Did it have heat before ? If it was plugged, the heater core may also be plugged. Try flushing it with a water hose in both directions. I dont know why the botton radiator hose would be cold, the radiator should be a uniform temp and the air coming through the radiator should be HOT, when the engine is at operating temp. What condition was the old coolant? if it was rusty, the water pump may have lower flow than normal.

SOURCE: i have a EGR code in my truck how do i fix it

In the 87 model the check EGR light was triggered by mileage to get you to have the EGR cleaned and serviced. In 87 they didn't have differential pressure transducers or smart computers to monitor EGR performance. On the right Side of the dash there is a square hole plug about 1 X 1.5 inches square it's behind your key ring if the keys are in the truck looks like it's for a factory option switch that you don't have it matches the one on the left side for the emergency flasher switch. Pull it out and look in the back of the hole at the top there is a black switch I can't remember if it resets the EGR Light or just checks the light Play with it and see of it turns off your EGR light.

The carburator needs to be retuned under a load to correct the problem. Take the truck back to the place were the carburator was worked on, and have them to check the carburator out for correct adjustments. Hope this will help you !!

1987 Dooge Ram 2.6 Overheating -- tried replacing


One note- many thermostat elements can be installed backwards and while they will function, they don't allow full flow of the coolant like that.
Dunno what the bolt might be for-
Another possibility is a blown head gasket; if these fail between any combustion chamber and a coolant path, it will heat the devil out of coolant and generally cause exhaust fumes in bubbles in the cooling system. You can check for signs of rust on your plugs since the cooling engine will **** in coolant and that will leave deposits. Also check your coolant for any signs of a milkiness and your oil for signs it is turning into hand-lotion.

Bolts for upper control arm assy on 1987 DODGE RAM PICK UP


Don't remember the size but they are likely grade 8 bolts not general hardware store stuff. See if you can get them from a junkyard (they usually discard them or cut off with a torch when removing control arm.
