Dodge Intrepid 1999 3.2
I bought this car 01/01/2021 for $1000. Said needed thermostat. Well. I've been slowly taking it apart. As I take off the hoses to the radiator, they are dry. Noticed the fans don't come on either. Not sure if ac works cause nothing happens with the buttons, but cool air comes out always. I bought the water pump, thermostat, and a belt. It takes 2. I bought a hayes book yesterday and getting that in like an hour. Because, I do not see water pump, or thermostat. Hoping the book helps. So... My question is... Why no fluids in the hoses? Could that be because of water pump and thermostat. I will be pricing radiator and fans when I pick up the book. Talk to me please. I really haven't a clue. Just diddling to fix this car. You tube isn't helping. And white smoke.
