Sound like your thermostat is stuck closed and is over heating your engine. I think that your radiator cap popped loose as a way of relieving pressure. I am almost positive it is your thermostat. Good news is this is an easy fix. However, if you keep overheating your engine like that it will not be.

05 Durango 5.7 Hemi overheating. We replaced the water pump it was leaking. While we were doing that we changed the thermostat, flushed the radiator, replaced the belt and the coolant temp sensor.


You need to verify you have power going to the fans or run the Durango and see if the fan are coming on, you may have a bad wire or relay to the fans.

How to bleed off any airlock


Check for bleed valves in the system. Open the bleeders while filling through the radiator until bleaeders drip and close them. If there`s no bleeders open radiator cap, start the engine annd run it for a minute. After that, top up with coolant and repat if necesary. Close the cap.

Radiator


the upper rad hose goes from the rad to the thermostate housing. this hose is @2-21/2" the lower hose same size goes from lower rad to water pump. There is a 5/8 hose from water pump to thermostate housing called bypass hose. and you have two hoses from water pump and intake to the heater core. hope this helps if not let me know thanks

THEROMSTAT/ 2002 DODGE DURANGO???


make sure engine is cool then drain coolant by opening the drain plug at bottom of radiator. remove cap from radiator so coolant will continue to drain and when coolant is down enough to pull off upper radiator hose at intake then close drain, then remove two bolts at coolant housing and remove thermostate. clean gasket material from intake and housing and replace with new gasket and thermostate tighten bolts install hose fill rad with coolant water mix 50/50 and run engine with heat on floor until gets hot and you see coolant flowing in rad, install cap

2001 Dodge Intrepid ES 2.7L Overheating


That is a bleeder, but if you can't get it loose, just start engine with cap off & watch flow, and let air bleed out through top. I usually let coolant circulate through 2 or 3 cycles before I put cap back on. By cycles I mean, when cold, remove cap,start car, TURN HEATER ON, and let it run until it's up to running temperature, then pay attention to temperature gauge, and flow in radiator. When at normal running temperature, you'll eventually see the flow increase in your rad when thermostat opens, and shortly therafter your rad fan will probably start to cool the incoming coolant. Watch for bubbles when flow increases, which is the air bleeding out of the system. Let it do that about 3 times before you put cap on, then take it for a short drive, come back, shut it off and let it sit & cool down again. You may get coolant returning to bottle but that's normal. If your getting excessive or continuous bubbling from rad, it may be indicating a bad head gasket or head, but lets not go there yet.One other thing to try, is if you go for a drive and it starts to heat up, turn your heater on high heat & high fan setting, and see if gauge goes down. If that makes it run cooler, your probaly looking at a new rad.
