    Is it overheating real fast? If yes, open radiator cap, start engine, look for bubbles coming up. If it bubbles continuously, you have a blown head gasket.

    no, its not overheating fast, it takes time, maybe 15 mins. It causes the truck to not want to run after it gets hot.

    OK, I would still check for bubbles. May be a slow leak in head gasket. and the fan comes on right? Can you see water flowing in the radiator? Are there any leaks at all? Is there excessive moisture or smell of antifreeze at the tailpipe?

  • jwhite3321 Oct 05, 2010

    No, the water isnt flowing in the radiator. there are no visible leaks either. The radiator, thermostat, water pump are all new. Fan comes on, and I checked for the smell and moisture and didnt smell or see any.

Pull the head off and have a look for corroded water ports in the head and failed gasket

OK, I will suggest that you remove the thermostat and run the engine without it. When you take it out, note which way the spring was pointing. It should be inside the engine. Put the housiong back on, fill up the system and run the engine. If you cannot get coolant to flow with the thermostat out, you must have a major blockage in the engine. While the thermostat is out, you might want to check both radiator hoses to make sure they haven't decomposed inside. Pull them off the engine side and look into the engine for rubber parts or blockages. OK?

I have a 1997 dodge grand caravan with a 3.8L I replaced the radiator cooling fan relay switch and fuses but when idling for more than 5 mins. the van starts overheating


Water pump impeller could be bad or thermostat is stuck shut. I would change thermostat first,easy to change, cost under $10.00 Water pump is hard to change in this van, you have to remove right tire, then inside wheel well, then loosen 3 top motor mount bolts which will lower engine so you can get to water pump and tensioner.

My 1999 dodge neon is overheating and just changed water pump and thermostat radiator. No leaks and no water in oil. Changed thermostat again and same problem . How can you tell if water pump is bad and...


Last time I had this problem I had a cracked head. With the cap off the radiator, run the engine at idle to operating temperature. When your looking in the radiator you should see the water circulating if the water pump is working. When you say the motor is over heating, if you have fluid coming out of the over flow hose then yes you are most likely overheating, if you are just seeing the gauge indicate you are over heating you may just have a bad engine temp sensor.

have you checked for spark? check all the leads going to the coil from the battery and from the coil to the distributor, if any are loose or faulty it will cause you to lose all power, also check the terminals.
