My 1995 Dodge Dakota has suddenly started overheating and it doesn't seem\nlike there's any coolant getting through the engine. I just noticed this for\nthe first time tonight on the way home from work.. Funny thing is, it\nstarted happening immediately after we lost the engine in my wife LHS for a\nsimlar reason. It seems that her radiator became clogged or something\nbecause her engine completely overheated and there was no indication of\nimpending failure from either the gauges or the fluids in the LHS until\nafter the engine had thrown a rod. Only then did the water/coolant temp\ngauge rise above normal. The car started knocking on while we were out of\ntown, and by the time we drove the 40 miles home, it was too late.\n\nAt least with my Dakota the temp gauge is indicating an overheating problem.\nI'm think Thermostat, Could having less than a 1/4 tank of gas be an issue?\nI just dropped below a 1/4 tank yesterday, and discovered this problem on\nthe way home tonight.\n\nIf any one has any idea of whats going on on either, or can tell me where\nthe Thermostat is located on my Dakota, or an donate an engine so that my\nwife can keep campaigning to win Monique's F.A.T. Chance, Users Choice\nAwards(Hopefully to jumpstart her modelling career. Please help as it a\ndream of her's to become a model like her grandmother.
