Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I am going bankrupt trying to keep this on the road, they have flushed radiator system
twice, repaired cooling system at Chrysler. it now boils coolant on longer trips only. I
have had fan assembly, fan and thermostat fixed. I have had new timing belt, and it now
runs rough as well, when they did that new water pump etc. I am tired of all of this and
Chrysler after spending all that money told me they are stumped, easy to say get rid of
but I have a low income, please any help would be appreciated.

You have a head gasket problem.

I have similar problem. Try replacing cooling fan. You can hear if it is coming on. Do this before checking head gasket. Mechanic never said anything about cooling fan to me. Still having problems but now at least I can drive it without it overheating.
