Engine Cooling problem
1997 Dodge Dakota V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 189000 miles
Yesterday I replaced the water pump, hoses and thermostat. After driving around in the city the car seemed to be acting normal and no over heating. Well this morning driving to work on the freeway the car started to overheat and boiled over in the overflow tank and then on the ground. The clutch fan does work. I have been told it could be a few things. 1) The new thermostat is faulty, 2) Air pocket in the coolent system, 3) radiator is clugded, or 4) I just need to buy a new car (not an option). Do you have any ideas I can look at or suggestions on what to do.
have the same problem?
