    Go back remove the tstat. install the housing without the tstat in it. run for about 5 min. Then take the housing off again and reinstall the tstat. that should fix your overheating problem.

SOURCE: 2002 dodge 1500 Changed radiator, thermostat, and hoses. No heat

Why was radiator replaced?Did it have heat before ? If it was plugged, the heater core may also be plugged. Try flushing it with a water hose in both directions. I dont know why the botton radiator hose would be cold, the radiator should be a uniform temp and the air coming through the radiator should be HOT, when the engine is at operating temp. What condition was the old coolant? if it was rusty, the water pump may have lower flow than normal.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. Have you checked to see if it is a coolant sensor? Have you checked to make sure the fans are coming on? Are you leaking coolant anywhere? Checked the cap?

Where is the thermostat located on a 2000 Dodge Durango


If you look at the picture.
Notice where the radiator cap is, follow that hose to the left and where it meets the engine is where your thermostat will be.
It will be located behind, and about in between the alternator and A/C pump.

check if fans are coming on and if they are they should blow into the motor, if they don't just change the cable position, positive and negative.
