Overheating

Asked by Aug 20, 2016 at 11:13 AM about the 2012 Dodge Charger SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2012 dodge charger and I just
started having these problem with my car
I've change the thermostat and it's still
doing the same so I call to the dealership
and explain to the guy that works on the
cars he say it's sounds like the heads and
that the dealership doesn't cover that
problem he suggested that I try blue devil
my brother had this problem with his
Chrysler and it work fine I'll rather try
spending 40 bucks vs 1700+

Have you tried anything else like flush the cooling system and is the cooling fan coming on ? If all else fails yes I would try a block seal. Have used bars leak and it worked great never tried the blue devil before quite sure it is just as good.

Be sure it's a head or head gasket issue first by proper diagnosis! Could be just a dirty cooling system! But I can say that Blue Devil really does work. We have a couple of customers (I work for NAPA) who order it from time to time. I've never heard any complaints about it. BUT you HAVE to follow the directions on the bottle EXACTLY!! Otherwise you'll have problems. HTH. -Jim
