Question about 1999 Dodge Stratus
My mom's car (99' stratus) got hotter than normal yesterday, so I added some anti-freeze and water into the reserve. Today when it was on the highway it got way too hot so we immediately pulled over. There were no leaks, the antifreeze in the reserve was still pretty high. I replaced the thermostat in December, because it was sticking. I think this may be the radiator fan stopping, but I checked the fuse and it was in tact.
Why is this happening?
Any advice (Detailed as possible) would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
Overheating going down the road is usually caused by a faulty/clogged radiator. There isn't enough flow/cooling effect. Check for debris in the fins, or replace the radiator.
