2001 Dodge Dakota 4.7L - Filling The Engine Coolant System




What do you think about this video?

Rose Healey: Thank you this video was very helpful. I watched at least five different video's on how to bleed the cooling system to my 2000 Dodge Durango and none of the other videos was helpful at all so I wanna thank you again for posting this video.

Edward Gallego: So do NOT use the old standby Prestone green 50/50 antifreeze on the 4.7 Dodge Durango? Zerex G-05 only? Getting ready to do maintenance on my 2001 4.7 liter Durango and want everything just right...

Matthias Pleil: Thanks - very useful video.

Jerry Walter: 1-21-16 Eastvale, California.

I just completed the replacement of the thermostat & both hoses and this video was extremely helpful as I have never bled the cooling system on a Dodge 4.7 before.

A few things....the size of the tool you need to take out the bleeder is not a Torx 50 but an Allen 5/16".... That's why he's gonna need a new bleeder.

Second, he's filling the engine with green anti-freeze. The correct fluid would be Zerex G-05. It's red.

Third, I'm pretty sure he started the car with his tools on top of the engine. Not the smartest thing to do.
But I'm pretty sure the video helped me with the understanding of the bleeder to get the air out of the system.

Lastly, he capped reinstalled the bleeder, and again I'm pretty sure, there were still bubbles coming out of the bleeder.


Extreme Thanks Coder.

kevin nicholson: i think this will help me out greatly with my 4.7 durango

xorockstar411ox: what if there's no bleeder?

mark sun: 2.4 quarts? in the owners manual for my 2004 dakota 4.7 it says 17 quarts. i'm totally fkin lost because after i flush and drain the radiator (with lower rad hose off) it only takes about a gallon of fluid.  so, im not sure how to dilute the concentrated antifreeze.

Nicholas Alvarado: Awesome video I've got a 4.7 in my jeep and couldn't find any videos on this process except yours worked out great for me thank you again 

Zach Gavell: Great video.  Got a 2001 Dakota that needs some maintenance and finding all your videos on this model was a godsend.

Greg Goss: Thanks very useful info most repair manuals never show what you want to see. Watching your video so helpful.

Lisa Hanna: Is your coolant already pre-mixed with water?

dragonox2010: My 2003 3.9 doesn't have a bleeder like you show in the video....help

TheTexasCoder: Thank you for the kind words! I am glad the video helped, and it is one of the reasons I still post to YouTube. The videos have helped me in the past, so I wanted to give a little back to the community. Glad to meet another Dodge owner, keep that Durango rolling and on the road. Take care!

John Barrera: Even though you uploaded this video over a year ago, I just wanted to let you know that this video is still helping people (like me!). My wife and I recently bought a 2001 Dodge Durango. I was surprised that our Durango started running hot even after I added antifreeze. Thinking the worst, I came to Youtube to find some insight and I found your video! I bled the system and added coolant according to your instructions and presto, no longer running hot! Thanks again! I really appreciate it!

pandapower63: Thank you for this video! You helped me when I needed it. On one of your videos you mention the "flick the key on off on off then leave it on on" trick to read the codes. You said it works on your 2001 and had asked if it works on any other years. It works on my 2003 4.7L quad cab 4x4. Thanks again!

Joe Weddington: Thanks for posting man this really helped me solve an weekend repair issue that would have otherwise blown my weekend time when I get to go get my son and hang out with him. You saved the day brother!

Pat Grant: Thanks very helpful!!

TheTexasCoder: Thank you for the comment and for watching! I am glad the video helped!

MrT1193: Thank you so much for making the video. I really appreciate it.

51esparza: it worked, thanks a lot man
