I had to remove the intake Plenum to access the coolant

Customer Question

I had to remove the intake Plenum to access the blown coolant hoses behind the engine on mu 09 Journey 3.5l. I do not think it overheated bad but the engine did derate. 2 issues now. 1. can't get the coolant to fill the system from the surge tank i can only add 1/2 gallon.
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with Dodge. The Dodge Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: filling the reservoir and running the engine. it is warm and the gauge seems to be reading correctly
JA: Is there anything else the Dodge Mechanic should be aware of about your Dodge?
Customer: no
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Dodge Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
Customer: i'm also having an issue that it only seems to be getting air from the PVC port in the plenum that has no hose attached to it.
