Sound,s like a stuck thermostat.


To bleed it, crank car remove radiator cap or resivoir cap,fill with fluid till full,then let car heat up,it will burp it self,then replace cap.

Yes. Everyone should try this before taking it to a shop! My '04 sebring with a 2.7 liter engine was overheating, wouldn't hold antifreeze & had no hot air at all. Took radiator cap off, started car & then bled the system of the air that was trapped inside. Runs great now!

Another FYI-if ur 2.7 liter sebring or dodge will not start-check fuses under the hood. It's commonly a 20 amp fuse that is blown. When u find the blown fuse, replace it with a 30 amp fuse. Car should start right up! If no blown fuse, then it more than likely is ur starter
