So, we called our task a success and I slept soundly with the knowledge of a job well done. Thanks for all your help. Drop plug down the hole and use socket to align and tighten until just snug, then torque to manufactures specifications. Even though the thermostat is at the lower hose, the flow is still from the upper hose, through the radiator to the lower hose and back into the engine. Next I stuck a garden hose to flush every possible direction there could be a blockage, nothing! Ive been researching this issue and im not alone and they really need to check into this problem but its very convienent for them to deny havng to replace their defective engines.
Nothing looked out of place. I found out that they lost my info when I when there because I just got a letter regarding both of the airbags and the ignition recall. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. Dodge said that the failure was probably oil sludge, it happens all the time with the 2. Even though she had only been to Cerritos Dodge may times.
I took it to the repair shop, and they still can't figure out what the problem is. When turning the key there is no resistance or clicking when switching between the stops that are normally there accessory, start, etc. I was not informed of any small print or negligence clause by the salesman. I don't want to use too much force and break something. Did you notice this issue as well? When I got to work, the needle on the temp gauge hadn't even passed the quarter mark. You can do this while the engine is still basically cool and before steam has a chance to form. Well I had the thermostat changed again , and I still have the same problem.
Performance is great for a huge car. Heater does not give me much heat until I shift into drive. While driving at a high rate of speed, the contact noticed smoke under the hood and the vehicle stalled without warning. So I go out and let the car run about 15 minutes until I leave for work. The radiator dumped all coolant, and the engine overheated within moments. I asked what would cause this problem and was told maybe it was the way the car was driven. What happens if I didn't get out the car, slow and it rolled back and hit the car until this day my car is stillwhere the tow truck parked it.
I thought maybe i had neglected some kind of maintenance or something, even though i get the car serviced regularly. I know generally how to get at it because I have the Chilton manual, but the Chilton doesn't mention anything about changing the ignition actuator pin because that's not a Mopar part or how the dealerships fix this issue.

Such as the impeller in the water pump still being attached to the pulley. The check engine warning light illuminated. I have continued to check with my local dealer but no parts are still available.
In addition, the contact stated that burning fumes emitted into the vehicle. It got up to the half way point on the temp gauge before I'd gone 3 or 4 miles, whereas previously it didn't even get a quarter of the way up on my drive to or from work. The failure mileage was 93,000. This incident almost made me hit the car behind me because it rolled back luckily for emergency brakes it didn't. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic where the technician diagnosed that the starter and the engine needed to be replaced. It seems strange that the problem was apparently fixed only to reappear the next morning.
I go to turn the key and nothing. Simply remove the screws, and disconnect the connectors to remove the coils. I know generally how to get at it because I have the Chilton manual, but the Chilton doesn't mention anything about changing the ignition actuator pin because that's not a Mopar part or how the dealerships fix this issue. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. I received another notice in February of 2015 at which time I contacted my local Dodge dealer and was told there were currently no parts available to fix the issue. This is a car for family guys with a need for speed once in a while wink wink.
It was in mint condition and has only had 54,000 miles on it. Whirring sounds like it's coming from the throttle body and the popping around the fuse box. . Spring, Summer, Fall never have an issue. Thanks again Second update, I checked the bottom hose going from the thermostat into the radiator and it was cold like there was no circulation.
When turning the key there is no resistance or clicking when switching between the stops that are normally there accessory, start, etc. I checked the bleed valves on top of my engine coming from my radiator and it was mostly steam or a lot of bubbles coming out. She was there for a week, something to do with the front end. No circulation could also be a water pump issue. Look, I purchased my car with cash. But this is just a guess.
I've got a great buddy at work hooking me up with a shade tree mechanic and looking for the short block of this model to replace. Speed the power is really unmatched for car in this price range. I originally wanted a used vehicle at a much cheaper price, but the warranty did not cover used vehicles, only brand new purchases were covered. The hoses should get warm. Or do our cars just take a while to heat up, and should I give up my dream of not having to wear a winter coat on my drive home? I paid her off before she left the dealers.
