2012 Grand Caravan Running Warm

Asked by Jun 24, 2019 at 05:45 PM about the 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi, I recently drove up a steep hill and my Dodge got warmer than normal
(Normally sits just below or above middle) it hit the first marker above half
way so not far. When we stopped and it cooled I checked the coolant and it
was a bit low. I filled it with water and drove home with no issues.

Since I have driven around town for a few weeks with no issue and one 1-2
hour drive to a different town and back with no issues.

Last weekend I went up the same hill and it did the same thing - hit the first
notch then when I stopped and Idled it went down to normal temp relatively
quickly. The coolant doesn't seem to have gone down in level since I filled
with water.

Is this normal? or what could be playing up? should I be worried?
Thanks!
