04 Dodge Neon overheating problem.
My neon has overheated a couple times, I
thought it might be thermostat but fluid
isn't leaking while car runs. But a short time
after driving and turning off car it leaks but I
haven't caught it in time to see where from.
I'm waiting again now. Any advice on
wether it would be thermostat or water
pump? Before I start replacing parts.
Are your cooling fans coming on when the car reaches temp, thats could cause overheating. If the car is up to temp and hose that is going to the thermostat is really hard that could mean the thermostat is not opening up letting fluid to the engine .If it's the pump there is a weep hole near it and fuild will drip out of there.
Fans do come on when at temp. Temp gauge was a bit high while idle. Gave it gas and temp dropped and heater went cold. See nothing leaking while running
Sounds like the the thermostat, is that hose hose going to the thermostat on the hard side?
No its soft
If its soft and the car is up to temp then the thermostat is open letting water thru. the next in line would be the water pump.
