WHY IS MY 2001 DODGE INTREPID 2.7 L OVERHEATING

Asked by Jul 17, 2013 at 03:04 PM about the 2001 Dodge Intrepid SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The car recently had a new timing chain & water pump put on. The car  over heats after
approx 2.3 miles so I decided to put in a new thermostat as well as a new coolant
recovery tank cap.Still overheats. Have been attempting to bleed air out of the system
but how do you when there is no bleed valve on the part where all the videos I've
watched show one. I have loosened the front two bolts on that part to release air which
comes out but very little coolant with it. Please help with how to properly get it bled
with no bleed valve. It still over heats after all my attempts

U need to replace your coolant air bleeder valve on the front of the engine if you just replaced everything else
