DODGE STRATUS THERMOSTAT PROBLEM

1998 Dodge Stratus • 178 miles

I have a 98 Dodge stratus. I starts to over heat after 20 mins of driving it. Can you tell me the possible issues and how much it will cost to fix?

The first thing I would recommend is checking the thermostat. It may not be opening. If that is good, check to make sure the radiator isn't plugging.

Let me know what you find.

Okay thanks would you know how much it would cost to repair?

It is hard to say when I'm not sure what the problem is. A thermostat is a 5 dollar part. Then you would have to pay labor (or do it yourself) plus coolant.
