OVERHEATED

Asked by Aug 03, 2015 at 01:16 AM about the 2006 Chrysler Town & Country Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi ,
   My 06 Town and country overheated within the first 5 miles when I drove on the
FWY at 70 mph. I had to slow down or pull over.
   After the temperature reduced to normal temp , I can drive a hundred miles at 70
mph no problem.
   This happened twice recently. My Van has 75k miles. I was just wondering if there
is some thing wrong with thermostat , cooling pump, or the radiator. Thank you for
the help.

WATER PUMP, RADIATOR, FAN, THERMOSTAT ALL OF THESE COULD BE THE PROBLEM, FIRST START AT THERMOSTAT AND SEE IF FANS DO COME ON

Schalk is right could be any one of the things you mentioned and what he mentioned just have to get it to a good mechanic that can diagnose the problem and give you a fair price to fix it.

At highway speeds overheating is usually caused by a coolant circulation problem. Sounds like a sticking thermostat. It sticks closed then when it finally opens up it's fine until it's cold and closed again. HTH. -Jim

2007 T&c 3.8 cooling fans don't come on so AC is non existent in stop and Go, but on freeway, works fine as air is forced past condensor coils. Still, in mild weather, engine temp needle stays pegged at normal without fans. So similar to all above, inop fans are the problem.
