Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, you wrote 2 different years, what year is the truck?
checking things, back shortly
ok, I have attached a link for your review, it shows location, tells location, That sensor will have a violet/orange wire and a dark blue/dark green wire going to it
you did not mention this, You asked for location,I am going to opt out and open the post to the other experts
Good morning and welcome to JustAnswer!!
Where are you reading the -27 degrees? In the overhead?
Did show -27 under engine coolant temp or ambient temp?
The coolant temp sensor is mounted in the waterpump housing, is this the one you changed? If yes then if you jump the 2 wires what does the temerature show?
If you take a paperclip and jump the terminals what does the reading show? What codes are in the PCM?
Was it a OEM sensor you used?
So the only problem your having is the temperature is rising from 200 to 240? Is the cooling fan coming on? And this is the only temperature sensor..
OK are you low on coolant? Do you have any leaks? If you leave the radiator cap off does the coolant boil out?
Since you don't have any leaks I would have the radiator flow tested and replace the theromostat
