I have a 2005 dodge durango that's over heating.

The basic answer is not enough coolant flow or not enough air flow thru the radiator. You'll have to find out if the coolant is flowing when the thermostat is open, is the system full of fluid, and is there enough air flow thru the radiator.
Does it get over 220 degrees if you are moving and at idle too ?

Check for balance pipe between tanks that allows the equalising of air pressure between tanks as the fuel will not flow from tank if there is no air release. check for correct cap on second tank

I have put new plugs in a fuel pump and mass air flow sensor, car runs rough and can't build rpm's. it sounds like it needs fuel but it is getting it to the rail and all injectors are working

it sounds maybe a transmission problem try some stop slip for it. then also you could try a fuel injector cleaner. if that doesnt work then it might be the speed senor

When I drive my car a94 buick regal it seems like its not getting enough air flow? One guy said it was the vacuum line..... How do I fix this?

if the air filter was that dirty it wouldn't even want to run a super charge engine with a missing belt would do it but on any model a plugged cat converter on the exhaust would act restricted

I have a 2007 saturn 4 cyl awd vue. When I come to a stop, the engine idles down and sometimes stops...

First I would check the air filter, if it's real dirty replace it. To check and see if it is the filter. remove it and drive the car. it your problem stops. replace it, you don't want to drive without it for to long. If it persists, try cleaning the throttle body and mass air flow sensor. And if it still persists, have the catalytic converters checked. All of these things are pointing to air reduction for the engine. if there isn't enough air flow threw the engine it starts with the symptoms you have now and gets progressively worse.

My 2000 chevrolet venture van will idle and stay cool, also run up 55 MPH and run cool-anything overy 55 and it runs hot-what is the problem? it will never get in the red but it will get the smaller line...

Sounds like maybe not enough air flow through the radiator, maybe take a water hose and try to clean the front of the condenser/radiator spraying any dirt or leaves out.

If it is clean, I would change the thermostat, it maybe stuck and not opening enough too allow the proper coolant flow??

Good luck-Hope this helps you ??

Replace your coil. This happens on these older vehicles a LOT as the oil begins to evaporate out of the ignition coil. My '54 GMC used to LOVE to do this.

are you getting air out of the bleed nipples at the wheels ? if you getting a good flow of brake fluid at the wheels then sounds like there air stuck in the abs pump, First try bleeding the brakes again with the engine running and under load with some1 pressing the brake pedal on and off . If you still not have a very good pedal crack the brake pipes off at the abs pump just very slightly just enough for the fluid to flow out and repeat the bleeding process again with some1 pressing the pedal on and off and that should sort the problem out . please feel free to ask any questions thanks
