Chrysler Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi Im David and thank you for visiting the site, it could be a few things. The first thing that I recommend is something as simple as replacing the radiator cap. Caps that lose their ability to seal in the 16 psi can wreak havoc and is often missed in troubleshooting a coolant system issue It could also be the thermostat. Replacing it is a simple task if you have a basic set of tools.You could also have a clogged radiator. OR, worst case, you could have a head gasket leak. This could be pushing air into your coolant system and actually pushing it out of your radiator overflow. Lets try the cap first, if its not that then we will go from there, but we wont be throwing parts at your vehicle, there are tests we can do instead. thank you

ok. good. when the top hose doesnt get hot that means the thermostat isnt working
you try try putting a jumper in the cooling fan relay base to see if that turns it on.
