Asked by Apr 03, 2017 at 09:48 AM about the 1994 Dodge Ram 1500 2 Dr Laramie SLT 4WD Standard Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

If truck has been sitting for couple hours or over
night and I go to start it and go somewhere it will
steadily climb in temp which is normal but then it
gets to overheating temp then eventually gets
pinned at red line sometimes it will shoot back
down and cool off itself sometimes I have to get out
turn truck off and squeeze coolant hose and you
can hear boiling

Sounds low on coolant, check the coolant level. Also the thermostat may need to be changed out.

It was a little low on coolant idk why it was low it's not leaking anywhere it's got new radiator in it and a new thermostat

Then it sounds like the cooling system is not purged from air pockets. Should purge the cooling system. Here is how...www.youtube.com/watch?v=xeTgmdRkQtY
