Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Does the exhaust blow out any white smoke like when it has a blown head gasket?
Are you missing any fan shrouds?
Will the engine still overheat with the thermostat out or haven't you tried that yet?
How long does it take before it overheats, how hot does it actually get and do you have a temperature gauge?
Is this an automatic transmission with an oil cooler inside the radiator and if so does the transmission run hot, fluid look burnt, smell burnt or is the fluid level low/high?
Any leaves blocking the grille?
If this has ac, does it still overheat with ac off?
What about my other questions?
Try without the thermostat. If it stops overheating, replace it again. if it still overheats without it, you might as well leave it out until it's fixed but let me know if it still overheats without it.
Is the ignition timing adjustable and if so, it is ok, cause I know for a fact my engine overheated until I adjusted the ignition timing. I still don't have the thermostat back in mine yet.
