    The thermostat was actually taken off first to see if that was the problem, even before fixing the leak. The truck is a 2004.

If it is a 4.7L they are bad about cracking heads when they over heat and casting stoping up the radiator.

The dodge durango thermostat called for by the dealer is at the temperature of 192 you can solve this problem very simply by instaling a 160 thermostat that can be obtained at any parts store

Leaking, overheating --- *fixed* then puff of white smoke 1 week later


I'm not taking sides in this. So what I am going to say is more or less neutral.
There is a big possibility you damaged the head gasket when the engine overheated last week. The dealership would have no way of knowing this if it was not yet leaking into the engine when they replaced the water pump.
Once the water pump leak was fixed, the system would be running under normal pressure which could finish off the weak head gasket.
You can not see a damaged head gasket without removing the cylinder head. And you have two heads with two gaskets.
So, IF the head gasket is now blown there is a good chance they did not know it last week. It could also be a cracked cyl head or leaking intake manifold gasket. Or all of the above.

1996 vw jetta vr6 keeps overheating,


Get another boyfriend! "Just kidding"! ok, this is what I mean about "leaving it to the experts". #1 Make sure there is enough coolant, Check for leaks. Install a coolant pressure tester and check for leaks. Fix whats leaking. #2 Make sure coolant fans are coming on, and specifically at 220 degrees. If not, check fuses. Jump the coolant fan to make sure it comes on. if it does, then you may have a bad relay, make sure relay is commanded on. At this point , you may need a wire schematic for the coolant fans and related parts.

My 2001 dodge durango is overheating an leaking coolant from a round plug type thing in the corner on the passenger side near the windshield


What exactly is the "round plug type thing" near the firewall [passenger side]? Is it a sensor of some type? I, too, have a coolant leak here on my 2001 Durango; its tucked in rather tightly near the hood/firewall corner. My electric fan is not kicking on; vehicle overheated tonight. (4.7 liter)

Overheating and Misfiring 98 civic dx


Try a radiator flush with new coolant. Radiators tend to get clogged with **** and it can lead to the problems your talking about. What color are the tips of you plugs when you take them out. Have you had the codes read on the ECU?
