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.
