Having problems with your 2002 Dodge Stratus ?
The car overheated a couple of days ago, so I pulled over, waited and put water into the radiator. I checked the resevoir and it's full, and there are no leaks under the car. Why is the temperature needle still idling higher than usual? What should I do?
Could be that your thermostat is sticking. Take it out, dry it off and hold a lit cigarette lighter to it and make sure it is opening like it should, then let it cool off and close again, and repeat the process to make sure it is working properly, if not, replace it.
