Having problems with your 2005 Dodge Neon ?

Running hot I have a 2005 dodge neon. Flushed the coolant system and now, changed oil, replaced spark plugs/wires, and now it runs hot but the gauge doesn't say hot? Ran fine before the tune up.

Answers :

The temperature gauge will not work correctly if the cooling system is not filled correctly and has air in it. This will also cause your engine to overheat.

I use an inexpensive cooling system purging funnel made by a company named Lisle. It has adapters that fit onto the radiator neck and a funnel attaches so you can "overfill" the radiator to get the air out of the system. Fill it until the funnel stays about half full and run the engine until the cooling fans turn on and off at least twice. Then there is a plug with a "T" handle that you stick down into the funnel neck to plug it. Then you remove the funnel from the radiator and you can put it in the antifreeze bottle or the coolant reservoir on the car and pull the plug out to drain the excess antifreeze from the funnel.....Works VERY well...Neatest thing since pockets on T-shirts!Check the link below to see one. You can probably also buy one at your local auto parts store.
