Question about 1996 Dodge Ram
Chaged water pump, radiator, thermostat, and fan clutch
Check the lower radiator hose to see if it has gone "soft" Check when the engine is cool and stopped, grasping the hose and giving it a squeeze, you should feel the presence of a "spring" in the hose. That should be there to prevent the hose from collapsing as the water pump draws coolant through it. Without the spring, the draw created by the pump intake, and the resulting venturi effect will collapse the hose, cutting off the flow.
If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!
