Question about 2002 Dodge Stratus
Last night my car was overheating but was able to stop before it got to bad and came home, I added water and then som anti freeze also. I just had the car running for about 20 mins and the thermosate was in the middle but only cold air was coming out instead of heat. Any ideas?
Sounds like your coolant system is still short some fluid.
This is sometimes due to the cooling system needing special filler pipes to fill above the level of the heater core, to remove all the air trapped.
Also,,,you may have damaged the head gasket through over heating the motor,,if this is the case,,then you will be leaking coolant into the motor itself,,this will mix with your engine oil and could destroy your engine very quickly if not repaired.
Check it out carefully before you stop worrying.
