Engine Cooling problem
2002 Chrysler Concorde 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 95000 miles
Concorde 2002, 3.5L, engine running excessively hot after 20 minutes of driving. Fine at an idle for 30 minutes of run time. Installed new radiator, new water pump, thermostat and new hoses. System bleed correctly so there is no trapped air. Fans have been tested and running at low and high speeds and coming on at correct temperature. No hydrocarbons in coolant, my mechanic does not know what else to check for. On or about the time this started to happen, air dam (2" black plastic trim under front bumper) was torn off. I've seen an on-line comment that this contributed to a similar problem. Could the loss of this change air flow through engine compartment and cause engine to hit higher temperatures?If not, any suggestions?
have the same problem?
