ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING - COOLING SYSTEM
203/01/1997
 The whole cooling system was found to be completely rusted out a few months ago. we had the cooling system fixed once & just found out that it is rusted again today. it was replaced the first time by goodyear (where son works). it cost about $1000.00 the first time to fix it. the fuel tank was leaking a good while back, was fixed & started leaking again. the fuel tank problem was fixed twice, both times under warranty if i remember right. we had it fixed at a dodge dealership in hamilton. i have had a problem every since it was fixed the second time that when you pump gas into it it constantly stops like there is something keeping the gas from pumping in properly. i still have the problem when filling up with gas. the reason we had the cooling system fixed at goodyear instead of the dealership is because we didn't like the job they did before on the fuel leak.
