I have a 2005 dodge neon. I just replaced the spark plugs and thermostat. This is the first time I've ever done any work on a car except for an oil change.

Asked by Jun 03, 2014 at 02:03 AM about the 2005 Dodge Neon 4 Dr SE Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car has been running with the
temp in the red, I thought changing
the therm would fix that but that only
worked for a day. I read about
something called burping my car on
hear. Should I try that for about 45
mins?  Any other suggestions would
be greatly appreciated.

to burp the system just leave the cap off while the engine is running so the air can escape the system. add coolant as necessary if the level drops. (do not drive the car while doing this) if burping the system doesnt solve your issue report back


do it long enough so that the engine reaches normal operating temperature

Its the water pump working correctly?all hoses are on good condition?no blockage on any hose or heater core?

Coolant temperature sensor...if fans are not kicking then coolant temperature sensor may be bad..had that issue my self
