First off, be very careful here - Transmission fluid is flammable and will start a fire if leaking on exhaust manifold. this can happen if the tranny is running too hot and it's basically boiling over - or if passageways get blocked and the pressure pushes it out. I would start with a fluid/filter change. or you can have it flushed (best if shop does this).. FYI: they will need to change fluid after the flush so you might want to just bring it in to a shop and have them do flush and change fluid/filter all at once..
your ignition coil are going bad, they need to be replaced. once the car gets hot the circuit shut down the car when hot. once they cool your riding again until they get hot. thats your problem. Good Luck
Some cars are designed to have the fan run for a few minutes after you
turn the car off. But if doesn't stop until the battery drains, then it
might be a faulty switch or temperature sensor.
Or, if the fan stays running when the engine and radiator are cool you have a
very cheap problem: The fan thermostat is stuck closed. A new
thermostat will fix the problem--the hardest part of replacing it is
finding it. Follow the wires from the fan to the switch--it is usually
on the bottom tank of the radiator. Drain the radiator first and save
the coolant to put back in after you replace the thermostat. NEVER OPEN A
If that wasn't it then check the following:

hot at the top as it is at the bottom. If not, your radiator may be
clogged and need flushed or replaced. (Flushing is cheap. Replacing the
Do you get heat from the heater? Leave it
turned on high and see if your fan stays running the next time. If it
takes care of the problem that could mean you have a kinked radiator

Thermostat has failed (stuck open) and needs replacement. It's a big job (5-6 hours charged labor for a shop), and requires the front of the car to be removed. Here's a pic of my car (B5 A4) a few weeks ago when I changed mine:
I have a 2002 Honda Civic Ex, it has been over heating but only in stop and go traffic, never on the freeway, i have replaced, timing belt, water pump, cooling fan relay, cooling fan switch, flushed radiator. There is no white smoke coming from the tail pipe and the oil is clean, when the car gets hot i can smell the coolant pretty strong, car has never completly overheated gets about 3/4 of the way til red.
After extensive research I have found that in 10 out of ten cases it was the E.C.M or in other words the computer for the vehicle is faulty. You can thank dodge for this problem. What happens is they put a Temperature sensitive device in an area that gets unbelievably hot. Then the Computer overheats and shuts down. In most cases the control panel in the vehicle where the odometer is says "No Bus" The only way to fix this problem is to put a new computer in. DO NOT buy one from the dealership they are too pricey. Get on off of Ebay. For the extremely mechanical Savy you can do what I did in my durango. I carefully cut the tape away from the main harness then marked everything and cut the harness drilled a hole through my firewall (Just be careful where you drill) fed the harness through and reconnected my computer and mounted it under the dash so when it is extremely hot here in arizona the A/C Keeps the computer cool. With this method I have NEVER had this problem happen to me. Just don't do this if vehicle is under warranty it will violate the ciditions of the warranty. Hope this helps. I have seen this problem posted to other sites and am just trying to let everyone know what it is and How to fix it.
