Engine Cooling problem
2004 Chrysler Sebring 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 137000 miles
Hello.I have a problem that has baffled me more than any other.2004 Sebring 2.7L V6. Replaced the water pump less than a year ago. Just replaced the thermostat and cooling sensor atop the motor. Still overheats, heater doesn't blow hot at all, even when engine temp runs high. Water leaking from primary weep hole next to thermostat housing. Hard to believe the water pump is out again. The car was givin to me by my Parents and the Mechanic(family friend.37 years bustin a wrench)that changed the water pump doesn't live here anymore. I can't figure out what else it could be. Tried to fill system with coolant without engine running and when I leave the rad cap off coolant leaks from underneath. Put rad cap back on and leak stops. Same with bleeder nipple on cooling sensor atop motor. Open bleeder it leaks from underneath. Close bleeder. Leak stops. Gravity issue I'm guessing! I know changing this particular water pump isn't an easy or time friendly job.I know my way around an engine. Grew up with tools in hand. I'm a STEP-BY-STEP kinda person.I like directions to be readily accessible just in case. Any direction you can give would be greatly appreciated. From start of project to finish. Thanks a million.
have the same problem?
