Default Attention all 3.6l pentastar owners with higher than average coolant temps

Below is a TSB that mentions a water pump problem with your engines, I have seen many of you post regarding high temps and it may be related to this problem:

Water Pump
Part Numbers:
68079412A$
05184498A$
Issue Description:
Water Pump Noise and Elevated Operating Temp.


Chrysler is addressing an issue of NVH from the water pump on 2013 vehicles equipped with the 3.6 Pentastar. It has been described as a chirp, squeal, squeak at idle and operating temp. If the owner is bringing vehicle in for this condition, we would request the following:


Drain the coolant from the system and refill. Ensure to evac system properly. Do not flush with any chemicals. Retest vehicle. If the noise returns, replace the water pump. Otherwise drain and evac/fill is recommended.


If there are any questions regarding the request, please contact David Standley

Pentastar Current Quality cell (248) 462-9612. If you don't receive response within 15 minutes,please continue with normal repair procedure.

no you must bring the truck in with a complaint, schedule the appointment and if the tech deems it being this problem, then the repair is done.

Can you tell us what RAM considers as "normal" operating temp range?
