Having problems with your 2005 Dodge Neon SXT ?
Running hot? I have a 2005 dodge neon. Flushed the coolant system,changed oil, replaced spark plugs/wires, thermostat, hoses,and now it runs hot but the gauge doesn't say hot? Ran fine before the tune up. Gauge goes up to the marker above the cold line but not further and then goes down when the fan/thermostat kicks in. What could be making it run hot? What could make the gauge not register hot when it is running/boiling over?
2 possible things. 1st(cheapest) you have air in cooling system. Need to burp it. 2nd(expensive) you may have blown head gasket. I tend to think air is in cooling system and your level is low.
