Question about 2000 Chrysler Cirrus

Open Question

My 2000 chrysler cirrus is overheating. The past two weeks the gauge would be fine for a day or two then it would say the car was overheating but then in a few minutes the gauge would go back down but then go back up. The next day it wouldnt overheat at all. I had the thermostat replaced and it still overheated. I took the radiator cap off and its almost bone dry inside. Its not the fan because I always here the fan running. I am just not sure if the water pump is going out or if maybe the heater coil or something just needs flushed out????

Yes the issue is most likely an air block, jack the front of the truck up as far as you can, fill the recovery bottle and run the engine for about 10 min, then shut down and run cold water over the radiator, this should purge the air, recheck the recovery tank and refill as ness.

SOURCE: ford ranger truck overheating

I have had this happen with my ranger. Changed everything I could to try to fix the over heating. It turned out that I had a small leak in my head gasket and it was allowing exsaust gas to go into the cooling system witch was over pressurizing it. Also the air from the exsaust will heat up much faster than liquid making your thermostat to read hot and will not be able to blow hot air in the cab because there is no liquid going to the heater core. This happened to me when my blet came off and I tryed to make it home. If you had it over heat for a long peirod of time it may have ripped the head gasket.

SOURCE: My Jeep overheats while sitting idle. When I drive, the gauge goes down quickly. I have had thermostat and fan changed. I have also had the radiator flushed. What can it be?

Check your water pump and also sometimes a radiator flush is not good enough more than likely the radiator is blocked you have take to a radiator expert and have pulled apart and cleaned thoroughly

SOURCE: Overheating engine

Check your oil dipstick for coolant, or a mucky substance. Your symptoms sound like a blown head gasket.

SOURCE: 1997 Chrysler LHS is overheating

If when you replaced coolant you noticed taht it fills slowly, the radiator could be internally blocked. Usually it can be flushed or if really bad, replace it. Also have the radiator checked for hydrocarbons...any in there tells you that there is a head gasket problem.

I have a 2000 chrysler cirrus and for some reason my battery keeps dying. Its a new battery and i got a new alternor 2 weeks ago. It seem the battery dies after not driving it for a couple of days.


Did you see them putting a brand new battery? the problem as you describe it looks like the battery has a loss of water which prevent it to get charged as you drive. Check the battery's voltage (it has to be 12 or up ) and tell a technician to check the Acid of the battery . One more thing: is the battery a 65 Ampere one? that's the one the cirrus needs to work.
