You could have a bad water pump causing no coolant flow, inoperable radiator fans, a coolant leak,............

It is located on the lower part of the engine and requires a special tool, $50, to remove the hose clamps unless they have been changed already from the OEM clamps. You will need a lift to accomplish the job and several hours. Good luck. It is on the engine at the upper radiator hose. When reinstalling the thermostat make sure the spring is towards the engine. I didn't find it there According to Advanced Auto Parts the Thermostat is located on the lower radiator hose at the engine on a 1998 2.7L Intrepid. Thanks, Kit



This may mean there is a weak hose OR some sort of blockage in the radiator or cooling system.





I have already replaced the radfiator,cap,thermostat and confirmed water pump works. cools fine w/o radiator cap ,pressure builds and temp. rises when cap in place.


Ingeneral, the fan will run only if the temperature of the radiator is above the normal range. If the fan is running, then the radiator must be over temp unless the radiator fan thermostat or it's relay is defective. If the radiator truly is over temp then you have a larger over-heating problem You state the thermostat was replaced. if you replaced the fan thermostat then either the radiator really is over temp and it is doing what it should, or there is a problem with the thermostat-fan relay or switch. If you replaced the engine thermostat that controls the flow of coolent between the engine and the radiator, then that probably wasn't your problem and you should look elsewhere for an overheating cause. I would start by determining if the engine actually is overheating or not. If it is, I would look for coolent system problems like the engine thermostat (if you didn't replace it already), water pump, leaks, scale build up in the radiator, or blockages in the system. If the engine isn't overheating then I would consentrate on the fan, fan thermostat and relays.


The thermostat is located right on the front of the engine block. Its not a normal thermostat like you see in most vehicles. It is accually the flange that the lower radiator hose slips on to. Drain your engine coolant, remove the clamp on the lower radiator hose going to to the motor. remove the two 10mm bolts from the radiator hose flange to the motor, and the entire assembly will come out. when you purchase a new thermostat, it will come already mounted in a new housing. Replace the gasket, place the new thermostat in the motor, and reinstall the bolts.

May have an answer already, but be sure that the radiator is full of coolant.


There is no actual "radiator cap" due to the fact you have DexCool and an overflow with a pressure vent cap on it already. That is where you fill it up anyway....


Water under pressure has a higher boiling point, if the water is already hot enough to boil it will suddenly erupt when the cap is removed and pressure relieved.


Check the wiring for a short it has to be getting power from somewhere. Check swiches as well and remember that even new parts can be bad. you will need a multimeter for this task. I had the same problem with my intrepid. it was gone after i changed the thermostat, use a Mopar thermostat, these cars are designed for 196 degrees.


Thermostat stuck closed? Low coolant level? Radiator plugged or dirty? Water pump not working? Cooling fan not working? Defective radiator cap?


Remove the Radiator and have it serviced if they are able to. If not you will need to replace it, would be a good time to replace the Radiator hose's as well. Hope This Helps.


sounds like your temperature sensor unit if you have already checked the thermostat and the radiator and fans are ok


their is no thermostat in a 1998 vw jetta 2.0 , i know, i already went to the dealer.... There is a thermostat, the dealer is wrong. There is a housing at the end of the bottom radiator hose opposite the radiator. To access this, you must remove the power steering pump and its bracket. Then the housing, attached to the lower radiator hose is bolted to the lower part of the front of the engine, contains the thermostat. It is a 195 degree from the factory. A Duralast (pn 15379)that has a built-in bleeder, is a good one to pick up for about $15 at most parts houses.


The IMPELLER on the water pump.The MIXTURE of Anti-Freeze to Water mixture.Blown head gasket.Correct TIMING.the FLOW on the Radiator that U already checked...


remove the metal plate that covers the radiator, if you ever change a headlight blub, you already know which plate im speaking of... afterwards after disconnecting hoses transmission a/c lines just pull upwards, oh and disconnect plug to cooling fans it all comes out together ( fans, radiator, transmission cooler)


if your thermostat was bad your engine will over heat but it has nothing to do with the fan,fans are driven by a diffrent mechanism. try checking your thermostatic switch/ heat sensitive switch or sensor, located somewhere in the cooling system(radiator,engine block or thermostat housing) which is the one that tells the fan when to come on.(only electric fans)it may be faulty wiring



check the radiator cap, needs to be 13psi at least, i believe. that was my issue with my old ford, the cap was shot


If you replaced some of theses already ignore and go down the line # Not enough coolant # Water pump drivebelt defective or out of adjustment # Radiator core blocked or grille restricted # Thermostat faulty # Electric cooling fans blades broken or cracked # Radiator cap not maintaining proper pressure # Ignition timing incorrect
