1996 Dodge Stratus Q&A
1996 Dodge Stratus Question: engine overheating
Just because the oil has no trace of coolant in it does not necessarily rule out head gasket problems. Does the cooling fans turn on as the engine gets hot? The thermostat is quite simple to replace. Drain coolant from the radiator drain. The thermostat is located in the housing where the coolant fill cap is. Remove the two bolts securing the housing, replace the O-Ring and thermostat, refill the cooling system turn the heater to full hot and run the engine until the cooling fan cycles on and off, top up the coolant after the engine has cooled down. Allow the fan to come on again and then drive the car. After driving the car check for leaks and top up the coolant as required. - patrick mannion
just tried to replace the thermostat tonight based on this answer and I think the answer is wrong. The thermostat is not easy to get to on a 2.4L engine. It is not in the housing where you fill the coolant. It is behind and below and very difficult to get to. - mlyh1
