I have changed the rad fan 3 times. Chysler let on they didn't know what was making it heat up or they really didn't know. Anyway only 4000K after bumper to bumper warranty was off they wouldn't fix it under the powertrain warranty.

My husband, who was a mechanic for our ambulances in our city, has tirelessly worked on this. He has done everything possible to this crap car and nothing has worked. Only thing left is the head gaskets, but the compression is great and shows no other signs of that being the problem. upon checking other sites online, this seems to be a rather common problem and after talking to chrysler, I got the feeling they know it. I love this car, have taken excellent care of it, but I'm really tired of this and think maybe we should just get rid of it. Anybody have any suggesti0ns?
