Never use a used radiator... check electric cooling fan, and air must be purged out of the radiator / cooling system after refilling it, this can be a little difficult. are you sure that it is not leaking coolant from somewhere else, which would cause the overheating.?

check for low coolant level make sure coolant system been bleed from air.make radiator full coolant and coolant reservoir on the full cold mark.if all is good the cooling fan relay could be bad or the engine coolant temperature sensor could be faulty.

if it has the 4.7L engine they crack cylinder heads and the compression from the engine put air into the cooling system you can buy a tester that you hook up to the cooling system that changes color with exhaust fumes auto parts stores can get it or stock try napa

Start with an error code if any read at your favorite auto parts store. How hot does it get? Possible so hot (cooling system problems) that the block sensor feeding the ECU is telling it there's a problem. A kind of safety system. Double check all cooling system components. Is the Water pump ok, or belt slipping? Battery and electrical system ok?

I wouldn't think so , these sensors are made to be in a harsh environment ! If fluid or oil soaked for a long time , it could affect the wiring , maybe ! Your problem is the code , crankshaft sensor and or cam sensor ! P1391 DODGE

Sounds like a ground problem to me. Current won't flow without a ground.

This is a common problem in these model years of Chrysler vehicles, Be patient and you can easily DIY. The mechanism consists of a motor and two cable/two guide rail assembly. The guide rails hold the window onto the cable with a clip on each rail. It is better to buy the whole assembly new rather than just replacing a bad motor or just the guide rail/cable assembly. I have been burned just replacing one or the other only to learn when popping open the cable spool that 1) cable is shredded or 2) it ain't easy winding the cable back up as tight as the mfr had it and the window won't roll up with the same speed as the other one. You will need a Torx set... a 25 or 30 size if I remember will remove the guide rail bolts. Some models have the motors riveting on with soft aluminum rivets. Just drill them out... like butter. Others have torx bolts on them with the nuts encapsulated inside a grommet. Put your hand behind and inside the door panel to hold them with your hand when removing the torx bolts. Their are two holes on the inside of the door panel... one guide rail is extracted through one of them, and the other one through it's own hole. Push the window up first, have an assistance hold it halfway up for you so you can see and pull the guide rail release clips with needle-nose pliers. Push the window up all the way and tape it using a good tape around the door sill at the top. Then you can start removing/replacing the motor and guide rails. When your done, plug the wiring harness back in and raise the guide rail half way up using the motor and then unplug the harness again. Have your trusty assistant lower the window down gently, insuring it's inside the groove and stopped by the guide rail clip assembly. Insert the clips back in and test your work before re-assembling your door panel. Crutchfield makes new door panel liner, if yours is crispy. A heat gun sometimes help remove them more intact. Good luck!

This is a common problem amongst Chrysler vehicles in your year range. It's an easy fix, once you take the instrument cluster outside the car and unplug the wiring harness, dead center in the back of the cluster. Tool needed: 25 watt soldering iron. (Do not use a high powered electrician's soldering gun as it will ruin the circuit board.) Take the circuit card off the instrument cluster and flip it over. Note the location of the connector on the other side and touch the soldering iron carefully to each solder joint to re-solder them using the existing solder already on them. Plug it back in and viola, it's good to go!

Hi Patrick:
Let's play detective. Bear with me while I ask some questions. You just might find the answer to your problem.
- Why did you replace the starter?
- Do you know that the starter you installed is the correct one, that it works, and that it is correctly connected.
- Is the battery fully charged?
- Is the heavy cable connected from the battery to the solenoid, and from the solenoid to the starter?
- If you short across the big terminals of the solenoid, does the starter engage?
Odds are that once you've checked these you will have found the problem.
WORK SAFE! You're dealing with electrical power, and a potentially running engine. Transmission in neutral or Park. Parking brake ON.
Go slow and ponder what it is that you're going to do and what you want to happen when you do it.

Do you mean the shift lever itself won't go into the R position, or it doesn't move backwards when in R. I've never owned a Dodge so I'm not positive on the shift pattern. At any rate, you should first check that the linkage is correctly adjusted. Then you might consider doing a tranny service (drain tranny, remove pan and clean it, replace filter, fluid etc.) For some reason the transmissions in the '90's - early 2000's were notoriously poor products with a high failure rate. If you get a Chilton/Haynes repair manual that covers the make/model/year of you truck it has troubleshooting tips, and how to do the tranny service.

Check to see if the ABS system wire knocked loose when replacing the brakes.

2000 Dodge... | Answered on Mar 24, 2015

If you have changed the battery, have it load tested to make sure it is not defective.
A tech can also check the voltage output and regulator. I am assuming you have already had these two check done as well as ECM error codes. The PCM, powertrain control module would be my next component to have checked. A dealership should have the software to check this. I believe that the OEM part runs around $8 to $900.00 dollars. You may be able to get an aftermarket replacement for around $200, but once installed electrical components are not returnable. Do not get stranded somewhere, have a dealship check this problem out!
