    I have the same problem with overheating.My fans are eratic.I have switched the hi and low speed relays with no change.The fans used to run on hi only all the time .Now they seam to be intermitent.How are they controlled and what needs to be replaced so they operate properly.

    Same problem with my 1995 Dodge Intrepid.

    I tested my Hi / Low fan relays, they're fine. I tested the fan motors, they're fine. I blead the coolent lines, steady flow. Temp gage works fine. Fuses are fine. I tried to bypass the fan relays and still can get them to work.

    Can you bypass the relay switch with the battery? Will the fans kick on?

    I think I'm down to wiring. Unless someone thinks I may have missed something.

    Where is the ground for the fan's?

    I have the same problem but want to try everything else before its the possible head gasket. If its a head gasket would I have water in the oil or oil in the water?

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....

Sever overheating issues with 2001 Dodge Dakota 4.5l extended cab pick up after 15 min of driving.

The only things you have left is to check the heater and make sure it is not plugged or else the temp. sw. is giving you a false reading. I am assuming you replaced the rad. and heater hoses.

Why is my dodge ram overheating?

Sensor would just cause a check engine light and radiator caps hardly ever go bad. It's possible you put the thermostat in upside down. Also possible that a hose is clogged. More than likely you have a massive air bubble trapped in the engine block.

My 1997 Dodge Intrepid overheats. I've replaced the thermostat, and it continues to overheat. I noticed adjacent to one of the radiator hoses, a ribbed hose that is split. Could this cause the car to...

Now that you've eliminated the thermostat, it could be a number of other things. Don't drive the car too far until you've fixed the overheating problem - overheating can destroy an engine.

That split ribbed hose you see is plastic wire loom - it carries and protects electrical wires, and is not the cause of overheating.

1. Low coolant level
2. Radiator hose split/cracked, causing low coolant level.
3. Head Gasket - leaking, causing low coolant level
4. Thermostat - stuck closed (you eliminated this possibility)
5. Radiator cap - worn/damaged
6. Radiator fins - obstructed by debris/cardboard
7. Water Pump belt - missing/broken
8. Heater Core - leaking, causing low coolant level
9. Intake Manifold Gasket - leaking, worn, damaged
10. Radiator Fan Relay - faulty
11. Radiator Fan Blade - broken, missing
12. Radiator Fan Sensor/Switch - faulty
13. Water Pump - leaking, causing low coolant level
14. Radiator Fan Motor - faulty

My primary suspects would be Rad Fan Relay (#10), and
Rad Fan Switch (#12).

I've intrepid car has overheating problem has thermostat, working water pump, and keeps overheating

Might be blown head gasket. Is there oil in the coolant or coolant in the oil? Either of these would tell you that.
Also the exhust can get into the coolant and make the coolant low all the time.
I had two Chrysler products that the exhaust forced coolant out and had a bad head gasket.

Did you bleed the cooling system after refilling the radiator ? to bleed the system, fill the radiator with water and coolant. Run the engine until it is at a good temperature. Then turn off the engine and look for a bleeding screw at the oulet of the thermostat housing and turn it with a screwdriver counterclock wise. The trapped air will go out and coolant will start coming out. refill the radiator and repeat until only coolant comes out and no careful not to burn yourself.
