coolant outlet housing


Asked by Oct 17, 2016 at 05:17 AM about the 2005 Chrysler 300

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was coming home from a friends an hr
away and my heater cut out just started
blowing cold air  and then about 10 mins
later my overheat light came on but my
gauge wasnt showing it. It was still in the
middle between hot and cold  then about 5
mins maybe a lil less later smoke came
from the exhaust and my temp gauge shot
up to hot then shot straight down to cold
stayed at cold and my throttle light came on
and the overhead light came off. I was able
to get to my sister's turned it off and steam
was coming from under the hood. Popped it
and antifreeze blew up everywhere. Put
water in the antifreeze reservoir and steam
started pouring out on top at the coolant
outlet housing it's like it melted by the
screws. What would cause it to get that hot
and do that out of no where? Once I replace
the coolant outlet housing will thay fix it or is
something else wrong that lead that part to
break like that? The car was running
perfectly fine until this happened. There was
no leaks either.
