I had that problem before, the intake manifold gasket leaks. After replacing it runs like a charm. I have an '01 also and still have it.

What to do when 2006 Chrysler Pacifica engine temp warning light comes on?


Do not continue to operate. Operating an overheated engine will cause the engine to fail.

After the engine has cooled,
Confirm that the engine has coolant.
Confirm that the reservoir is full to the mark
Start engine and confirm as engine gets warm cooling fan at radiator turns on

Confirm that the rubber engine belt is working
Put in car heater to full hot and blower on.
Confirm heat is hot from car heater.
If heater is not hot possible water pump failure or air in coolant system keeping the coolant from circulating.
Allow to cool completely.
Remove cap start engine and observe coolant flowing at or near cap. Observe bubbling or exhaust gases coming from radiator

Check for water in oil by pulling dip stick
  • White smoke from the exhaust pipe
  • Overheating engine
  • Bubbles in the radiator or coolant overflow tank
  • White milky oil
  • Significant loss of coolant with no visible leaks
If milky likely a blown head gasket

Hope this helps?

Overheating when idling, thermostat is out and is still overheating, new radiator and it still overheats. Please help on what the problem is, I was told it was the water pump. My fan does not work unless i...


Well there are a few things this could be. 1 it could be the head gasket that';s the first thing I would check. 2 water pump 3 a air trapped in the block. The first test would be to open the radiator cap ( when the car is cool) and than start the car if you see air bubbles coming up from the fill spot. Than chances are you have a bad head gasket. now if you have the thermostat out and the cap is off you should be able to see water circulating past the fill spot if not than the water pump is most likely the culprit. Now for the easy one check to see if on the top of the motor you have a little screw with a bleeder hole. This is mostly found right on top of the thermostat housing this will let air out of the block so that it can be replaced with coolant. I hope this helps

try to replace the radiator cap w/ new ones,then do not fully fill the water reservoir w/ water leave some space for the air to circulate when water boils.done this and still there's a overheating your need to replace your cylinder head gasket,frequent overheating damages the gasket.

I keep overheating changed out thermostat and fan and still overheating I fill the hose with coolant and it all goes into the overfill tank and gets hot and boils out


A clogged radiator could be your problem. Flushing won't necessarily clean out a clogged radiator.
When it's idling and getting hot, the clutch fan should be running full on, actually "roaring" as some say, and the electric auxiliary fan or fans should be on if you have them. Also test your radiator cap, replace if needed. Hope this helps.

I have a 2001 alero and it is overheating, I have replaced the thermostat, water pump, heads, head gaskets, fan motors, relay switch to the fans and it acts like it wants to run hot. When I "test...


The most probable cause of both problems is with the replacement heads. As far as knocking goes, hard to diagnose from here - usual causes are a noisy hydraulic lifter (which, if severe, should be replaced) or a failing piston bearing or incorrect head/head gasket (piston banging on head which is very serious). Also, if the head gaskets were incorrectly installed or the wrong heads were used, you could have blocked some of the cooling water ports.

Overheating can also be caused by a blocked radiator - the system circulates the cooling water into the bottom of the radiator and the water cools as it circulated up to the top and back to the engine. A quick way to check when overheating is to CAREFULLY see if there is a hot-to-cooler temperature gradient in the radiator from bottom to top.

Overheating


When the car is completely cool,check the electric fan(s) for smooth rotation.

Clean/check/change the thermo sensor,contact and wire.

===

Excavate air pocket in coolant system / check for head gasket leak

This test will kill two birds with one stone.

===

MAKE SURE THE COOLANT SYSTEM and ENGINE IS COLD!

RAN THIS TEST IN A WELL VENTILATED AREA ONLY!

You will spill some coolant during this air pocket purge test.......BE KIND TO THE ENVIRONMENT and ANIMAL please clean up after the test!

===

Put the front end on a pair of ramp or park your car on a VERY STEEP HILL (radiator facing top of the hill) .

Top of the coolant reserve tank

Let it ran for 10-15 minutes.

Monitor for air pockets escaping from coolant reserve tank.

Small amount of bubbles is OK at 1-5 minute mark

After the thermostat open up (after 195 F warm up) at
5-12 minute mark or after high idle you should see less bubbles.

If you do not see any in rush of bubbles then your thermostat may be partially stuck or rusted badly inside the thermostat hosing.

Give the thermostat host few gentle taps.

If you see larger bubbles surfacing after 15 minutes then should do a hydrocarbon (HC) dye test to test for potential head gasket leak.

Let engine cold down and top off coolant reserve tank.

Start monitor for coolant lost

===

A coolant flush is require every 2 years or 24,000 miles.

I recommend the thermostat that has a relief pop-let to reduce the change of burst radiator and coolant hoses.

Make sure you get a new thermostat gasket,black RTV and fresh coolant for the job.

remove coolant.remove thermostat remove bottom radiator hose to water pump.put a empty container under the radiator.take a water hose put it where thermostat goes flush out the rust in block.watch the water as it come out the water pump .if stream water is small keep flushing until you get a study sream of clear water. also flush out radiator. lower water pressure dont flush radiator it with high water pressure you could burst it. make clean the over flow jug .make sure it not stopped up.put in a new thermostat and radiator pressure cap. fill radiator with half antifreeze and half water.bleed the coolant system.
