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.

I saw that, except for the 2 from just over a year ago.
But you never know unless you ask.

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|

|ruzzp||Yeah, fans are coming low and then on high just shy of the 1/2 on the temp gauge. That's been the car's normal operating temp since I've had it. The fans do it some good at a standstill, but don't seem to keep up at normal city speeds.|

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

"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.

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