My 98 Ram 1500 is still overheating and running rough
Changed water pump and poked hole in thermostat and its running rough smells gasey.
After about 4 to 5 miles it still overheats. I can hear water running through my dash hoses.
Top radiator hose is still pressured up and tight.
You need to change the thermostat compleatly. It's not opening up when it should. Thus causing the engine to overheat. Be sure to grind off the old seals and replace them to get a proper system seal.
if you hear the water its got air going around the system, burp all air out
