Looking for how to line up or time a dodge durango


I don't think you have to remove the timing chain, to do head gaskets. if you are talking about the distributor, you could use a paint marker to mark indicator marks on intake and on this distributor

My 2000 Dodge Durango keeps overheating, I just changed the thermostat and it continues to overheat.


You might go to a repair shop that can check to see if exhaust gasses are present in the cooling system. Unfortunately, it is possible you have a blown head gasket or cracked cylinder head. I hope I am wrong, but one of my co-workers went through the same thing with his Dakota.
Good Luck,
Richard
