2008 Dodge Caliber 2.0L Overheating
I have replaced both thermostats, radiator, water pump, both fans are working.
Oil and spark plugs show no signs of leakage in the head gasket. But it still hits
extreme high temp's after about 8 miles of drinving. No apparent sign of
antifreeze leaking on ground either. Please help.
Did you check coolant level? It might be blowing out with exhaust through a blown head gasket. Or maybe the engine's OK and the coolant temp sensor is bad.
A compression test at first would have saved you some time and money . Are you doing the work or is johnny jerk wrench throwing the parts and money at it for you ? Things should be tested before you replace them .
It could also be a bad water pump not circulating the coolant properly through the engine. Hope that helps! Jim
