Question about 1995 Dodge Intrepid
After changing radiator,waterpump,timingbelt,hoses,rad.cap,and thermostat the car still overheats.what should i look for next.
I have had trhis problem for months. Replaced everything and just found out it was air in the system. I purchased a tool take sucks all the fluids out of the cooling system into a bucket along with any air. Once the all the air is sucked out you reverse the the flow and it sucks the coolent back into the reserve and it works great after that. Has not over heated for weeks.

I currently am having the same issue. I have traced the issue back to the fans. The fans would not kick on so i let it run to almost overheating temperature, and checked the fans.... nothing was working. I slammed the hood to test a wild hair idea that one of the wires or the fans wasnt getting power. When i slammed the hood, The fans kicked on and the temp. dropped. So now its on to wire chasing.

There are coolant sensors on the top near the thermostat housing. Check it with a volt meter. Or just buy an new one their not that expensive. Good luck.

You may have a blown head gasket, but by far the easiest and most common problem is air in the system...if you look at the top of your thermostat housing you'll see an air fitting, with the engine warm (I prefer it running) simply loosen up that little breather and the air will escape. When water starts coming out at a steady stream, shut it. You may have to do it a few times to get all the air out, but it's worth it in the long run. If you've overheated the engine too much or too many times, you may have a faulty head or head gasket, which is an expensive repair. Try the air release first....
