Why is 2000 Dodge Ram radiator overheating?


Wiki User

It is overheating because either; 1. Radiator coolant is low-check and add if necessary-make sure a leaking water pump is not the cause 2. The thermostat is stuck closed and needs replaced 3. The radiator is bad-the tubes are clogged (remove the cap and visually inspect the inside of the radiator) and, or the cooling fins between the tubes are loose and falling off (run your fingers over them to check)-replace with a new one or have that one recored.
