Why is my dodge status ruining hot?

Asked by May 15, 2015 at 12:27 PM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

No leak in radiator, full of liquids.
Thermostat works.

1 Answer


Could have air in system or water pump not working. See if both top and bottom radiator hoses are the same temp. If not, sounds like water pump. Be sure thermostat is installed going the correct direction. And before you go out to buy a water pump, run it without the thermostat. I have seen new ones that are no good.
