When does it overheat, in traffic, at a stop light, running down the road? How do you know head gasket is "fine", combustion leak test performed?
I have a 2000 Dodge Intrepid R/T with the 3.5L Magnum engine. It overheated a couple weeks ago while stuck in freeway traffic on a hot day. It did so every day thereafter until I took it to my shop. It turns out the electrical connector at the fan assembly had melted and the fans were not running. Replaced connectors. Everything runs cool again.
