The engine of your Dodge is designed to run below a certain temperature and it has a cooling system that is designed to prevent the expensive damage that could possibly happen if the engine overheats severely. Central to the cooling system is the Dodge water pump, which is located at the front of the engine and is powered by a belt that connects it to the crankshaft. As the engine is running, this device pumps the coolant into the interior of the engine to absorb heat. The Dodge water pump then forces the coolant into the radiator, where the fluid is cooled with the flow of air over the radiator. When the fluid is cool enough, it goes back into the engine to start the process again. If your vehicle seems to be running hot, you may want to check the belt powering the Dodge water pump, to ensure that it is properly tightened. If that does not solve the problem, all other components of the cooling system should be inspected. As the vehicle ages, the Dodge water pump may start to move the coolant inefficiently, but it is more likely that you will notice a problem only when the unit completely fails. Within the pages of our large online catalog, you will find the correct replacement when the unit does fail, for much less than what the dealership would charge.
