Engine Cooling problem
2000 Dodge Durango V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 97000 miles
My Durango shows that it runs cold, the gage indecator stays between the 130 mark and the first line. Could the thermostat be stuck open? Last summer when pulling my trailor, when going up hill, the indicator would go way up, when going down hill, the indector would go down, but never over heated. They put a new heavy duty fan clutch in, never had that problem again, but now it runs cold with the indecator never going past the first line. Could this be the thermostat? Can this hurt the engine if not changed? Will it hurt the engine if it runs cold? Could the radiator in clogged? I did put in a new radiator cap in. I do not drive the Durango very much.
have the same problem?
