what engine do you have, if you have a/c turn it on, the radiator fans should come on, it is common for the motors to quit and the fan blades to break,

3.5 we do have a/c and I've run it before when it starts over heating just to see if it would do anything and it didn't cool it down....we are losing water some where but can't find the leak...someone said that the (don't quote me IM a girl) gaskets in the intake manifold (?) Might be bad and we could be loosing water in there....does that make sense?

yes it could be the intake gaskets, also the water pump is driven by the timing belt, also the right timing that the water pump bolts to can also leak coolant.

you still didn't answer my question, doo the cooling fans work ( the radiator fans )

Some times I can definitely hear them click on , other times I have noticed I don't hear them, but I didn't get a chance to look at the car today due to work but I ran the a/c at all times driving to and from work and noticed the gauge would start rising then drop suddenly to half way then after a minute start rising again

take it to a shop and have a block check done to see if exhaust gases are getting into the cooling system.

Just was told my "impeller on water pump" could be broken....know anything about this and would it cause leaking? We know there is a leak some place but just cannot find it

1,430

the water pump is driven by the timing belt, remove the upper timing cover and look inside, if you see a lot of pink crust type stuff then yes water pump is leaking, if you have more than 100k miles the inner timing cover may also be leaking

yes it can be costly

diagnostic should be about 1 hour for diag only.

All my parts are bought from Chrysler just to make sure they are right. Allready replaced coolant temp. sensor, thermostat, new radiator cap, new fans. problem still happening. At idle temp stays around half way but when driving it overheats quickly. Allready done the 9v battery check on all coolant relays, which checked out fine. Went ahead and replaced all fuses (19,and 22) that are connected w the coolant system just to make sure. Hoping the other two components arent the problem but from the way it looks, it is. Any comments would be helpful.
