Engine Cooling problem
1995 Dodge Caravan 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 133000 miles
3.0 engine. New timing, water pump, thermostat, radiator cap. Replaced head gaskets (Felpro gaskets) heads were cleaned but not milled or machined. Still get some bubbling in coolant overflow. After the engine cools, the overflow is still full but there is a lot of pressure released if I loosen the radiator cap, it does not pull the coolant back into the engine when cooling. Had radiator pressure test and system tested for leaks at Pepboys, they could not find any leaks and said the pressure was good, I asked them to check for exhaust gases in the coolant and got blank stares, so I figured they probably didn't know what they were looking at anyway. Do we need to pull the heads again, or maybe a restricted radiator? I do not see any of the hoses collapsing either.
have the same problem?
