Hi, If your Dodge Durango is leaking or spraying out water from the cap after a drive, I suggest that when the Radiator is cooled down remove the cap and inspect the inner lining where there are springs and gaskets ,maybe the rubber was worn out and the springs don't hold tight the cap. Replace it or you can also check where the cap should sit unto the hose assembly where there's a lock to hold the cap. it maybe loose enough to hold the cap when the pressure is on. replace them both. =)

I would suggest replacing the radiator cap.....and if you have already, I would safely say that the outlet on the radiator is worn, requiring replcement....(radiator, that is)

Check to make sure the cap is turned all the way closed.
After it cools down take off the cap and inspect the bottom of the cap.
If it doesn't look right, go buy a new one, its good insurance

SOURCE: Radiator

the upper rad hose goes from the rad to the thermostate housing. this hose is @2-21/2" the lower hose same size goes from lower rad to water pump. There is a 5/8 hose from water pump to thermostate housing called bypass hose. and you have two hoses from water pump and intake to the heater core. hope this helps if not let me know thanks

SOURCE: 2001 Dodge Durango 4.7 automatic . put in new

sadly it sounds like you have a blown head gasket...Does the coolant  smell like exhaust?  I hope you don't but, everything points in that direction.  Try bleeding the coolant system.

Dodge durango 2004 hemi running hot


You need a radiator. The cores are plugged. Flushing will not help and if you flushed the cooling system when coolant was filthy and rusty everything is now in radiator cores.

2004 dodge durango 5.7 hemi runs real rough white smoke comes out then blows oil cap off.


Ah oh..white smoke is water in the cylinder and cap blowing off is compressed air in the crank case..sounds like you have a blown head gasket or intake or both...have your radiator and block pressure tested..if gasket is leaking it will fail to hold pressure.. Check your oil for water sometimes a bad intake gasket will let water in the oil.good luck..

Our Durango is a loaded towing, 360 with heavy duty water cooling system. The radiator was replace before we bought it. We have put all new hoses, thermostat (2) new water pump, new cap(2) had it cle


When you fill the radiator, did you make sure the car heater was set to Full Hot? If not, there could be an airlock in the water system. This can give the symptoms you describe.

THEROMSTAT/ 2002 DODGE DURANGO???


make sure engine is cool then drain coolant by opening the drain plug at bottom of radiator. remove cap from radiator so coolant will continue to drain and when coolant is down enough to pull off upper radiator hose at intake then close drain, then remove two bolts at coolant housing and remove thermostate. clean gasket material from intake and housing and replace with new gasket and thermostate tighten bolts install hose fill rad with coolant water mix 50/50 and run engine with heat on floor until gets hot and you see coolant flowing in rad, install cap
