My 2003 Dodge Caravan is over-heating.

I've changed the thermostat but this hasn't solved the problem. The upper hose on the radiator is warm (and appears to soften).

What would be the next thing to check/replace?

  • Again, I'm not seeing a question. We want to help you, but you aren't telling us what you need help with. I'm not sure where you're going or what you'd like to know. All I can tell is you have an overheating problem. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Dec 13 '17 at 12:41

It wouldn't be hot if coolant wasn't running through it. So the question is: Is enough coolant flowing? That would be a water pump issue. Or, are the radiator fans not doing a good enough job. That would be a fan or fan relay problem. See this article on Chrysler fan relays
