Having problems with your 2000 Dodge Caravan ?

2000 Dodge Caravan, SE that is heating up pretty fast. It has sufficient radiator fluid. When I turn the air conditiong on, it heats up the engine even faster. I had my water pump changed for a new one in 2006, so I think that is ok. Wondering if it something with my thermal sensor? Thanks.

Just put in a new water pump, the old was leaking some terrible. Changed the spark plugs and wires. I put in a new distributor cap, the other one was cracked, and I put a new rotor in. I added a MAS sensor because it would not start unless I poured gas in the carbureator. I had to put in a new fuel pump, and it works fine, but the vehicle, which is a 2001 Chevy Blazer, 4.3 liter engine still will not start unless you pour fuel into the carbureautor. It just appears to not be getting any gas at t

Hi, I changed the water pump on the 2006, v6 3.8, twice. Both times i get leak from the connection. Am I not tightening the water pump bolts enough?

So now I am back to square one, any thoughts on this would be helpful before i take it into the shop. Recap: tigh

Remove the raidator cap while running or watch the overflow tank for bubbles. If you see bubbles either way, most likely your cause of the overheating is a leaking head gasket. If you have a cooling system pressure tester, pump up the cooling system ... 1989 Ford Crown Victoria

I have a 1999 dodge ram with a 460. I have very little heat and there is a mist that comes out of the vents when i turn the heater on. I unhooked the heater hoses and ran water through the core and it ran through with no problem. about 2 years ago I changed the water pump and put in a new thermostat. Last week I changed it again thinking that it was a falty one. This didn't help. When the top hose is hot the bottom one is cold even after 15 minutes of constant running. Can this be a problem?

2001 Volkswagen Beetle 2.0L - 4 months ago the water pump was leaking from the weephole behind the pulley. I replaced the water pump with one from NAPA, timing belt, etc. It ran great for a couple days until the brand new water pump began to leak from its weephole. I figured it was a faulty pump, took it off, put a new one on - same thing! New water pump leaking from the weephole! I did it once more with a new water pump from OReilly, same thing!!

Hello Sir! I have a1993 Ford Escort LX 1.9L Engine Station Wagon. My radiator fan turns on only when the temperature reaches almost to the red mark. When the rad. fan comes on, the fan stays on only for one minute then shuts off. The temp. gage barely moves and the engine won?t cool off. I had the rad. cleaned. I installed a new Tstat., a new water temp., sensor switches, and a new water pump. After these repairs, the engine is still running hot. The only way that I can keep the engine running c


It sounds like either your temperature sender is U/S(but you replaced it right),or there is a problem with the relay that it operates(check this first)or short the sender wire/s and you will then know for sure which one it is.\015\012\015 ... 1993 Ford Escort 4 Door

Look for a blown headgasket, this would prevent the coolant from circulating properly and cause the motor to run hotter and also blow your hose because the water pump can't circulate the coolant fast enough. As far as the transmission goes you will n ... BMW X7 Series

I have a 2005 Chevy Equinox that is leaking coolant. I have taken it to the shop and told that I need a new water pump. I had the water pump change and it was still leaking. So, I went back and I was told that I had a blown head gasket. Ok, so I had the head gaskets replaced and the engine is still leaking. I have been to several mechanics and no one can seem to indentify the problem. The weirdest part of all is that not that much coolant leaks on the ground, but the resouvir is empty. What'
