Have you told us what your problem is and what you have tried? Aren't there any Chrysler dealers in your area?

Hi In response to earlier posts,yes there is a chrysler dealer near buy but I dont feel like getting ripped off,I don't trust dealerships.I'd rather give my money to a private mechanic.The problem I'm having is that everytime i run the car (enough time so that temp is at half way)and shut it down I hear bubbling gurggling noises from the over flow tank.The work I just did on it from like May this year is timing belt water pump job,new radiator cap,new thermostat,new cooling fan, bled the system numerous times,flushed radiator,had the test done with the blue fluid that turns yellow if the head gasket is shot (ok)All this when I ran the car the temp needle never went past half way mark,all that happens is when I shut it off I hear the bubbling noise.Now just yesterday I put a new temp sending switch in and now it just got worse,I drove it up some steep hills and the temp needle rose all the way to hot and I put the heater on full blast it came down a little but when I got home it was boiling and just spilled right out the tank.(cooling fan was running)So thats where I'm at now.Thats why I'm looking for somebody who is familar with this car.Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.Thanks

Interesting, I had this same problem. On mine it turned out to be the thermostat, but now my fan motor is not running.
