2002 300M The seal on the water pump went on mine, and from the looks of it, the seal was leaking for some time, so that may or may not of been the over heating issue ?

So I bought the gates kit, belt, tensioner and water pump, and the last time my wife had it done, they used that cheap round o-ring in I am assuming they bought the same kit, for the pump seal, I upgraded and went with the nice pump seal from Chrysler, which you can see it's a much better seal.

I got over 240,000 miles, so I've ordered a new Chrysler harmonic balancer, so waiting on that.

2002 300M I saw that, except for the 2 from just over a year ago.

But you never know unless you ask.

2002 300M Any update on the cooling problem ?

Reason I ask, I have a 2002 300M with the same lack of cooling issue.

urphonesux Is the check engine light on? If so turn the key to acc on without starting the car 3x from the off position in 5 seconds. Trouble codes will appear below the odometer

Odd, more airflow should mean more cooling. With electric fans you don't have a fan belt to slip at speed. Fans going in correct direction?

Could the timing be getting out of whack at high speed?

Could there be undiagnosed trannie trouble that occurs after lockup which creates drag and overheating?

paintballdude05 What about the fan's. Are they both coming on at both the low and high speed?

ruzzp "Are you certain the thermostat is installed in the proper direction? You have a new radiator, new water pump (hoses I assume) and the heater works. If the block check comes back negative (I hope so) this leads to the thermostat blocking coolant flow."



Yeah, it's got the spring and plug side inside the block. I sure hope the block test comes back negative, too. Thanks.

Scooter-Man Are you certain the thermostat is installed in the proper direction? You have a new radiator, new water pump (hoses I assume) and the heater works. If the block check comes back negative (I hope so) this leads to the thermostat blocking coolant flow.

P.S. My '00 3.2L had the thermostat installed with the spring side inside the block, no overheating. I have never changed it.

Late!
