Question about 2002 Dodge Neon
I have a 2001 dodge neon. Soon after I bought it I began experiencing overheating problems. I changed first the radiator cap then I changed the theromostat. I had to change the head gasket. I changed the water pump. And yet it still overheats. The coolant bubbles over into the resevoir and you can hear a lot of gurgling noise. The fan works. I don't know what else to do! Please help!

Big headache. Let an experienced professional handle it. Something maybe blocking circulation of the system, or a crack in the cylinder head. A few tests might reveal something-block test, compression test, radiator flow test. You could do it all with the proper tools, could even rent them for cheap. Was the cylinder head tested for pressure and straightness when it was off?
So it is not losing coolant anywhere except by boiling off?

I currently am having the same issue. I have traced the issue back to the fans. The fans would not kick on so i let it run to almost overheating temperature, and checked the fans.... nothing was working. I slammed the hood to test a wild hair idea that one of the wires or the fans wasnt getting power. When i slammed the hood, The fans kicked on and the temp. dropped. So now its on to wire chasing.

Hold throttle open to a normal highway RPM in the driveway and observe rad hoses for collapsing. Do your run up the road & see what rpm your at when gauge starts to move toward hot, then use that rpm, in driveway . You did run that engine for quite a while with rad cap off when you refilled coolant, with heater on correct?
