Question about 2005 Dodge Stratus
Make sure the radiator cooling fans are both coming on when the A/C is turned on. This cools down the condenser which is mounted in front of the radiator. Dodge has had issues with the fan controls for years. There is a fan control module which turns the fans on when the a/c is activated or the engine temp reaches a prescribed level. I would replace the thermostat as well if the vehicle has been previously overheated or has high mileage. Good luck

Yes. Replace thermostat.
If not the problem then replace the heater core.
A/C - may need to be recharged - (may be a result of car overheating as well) - TIP: while driving use MAX A/C so the pump doesn't have to work as hard to cool the air - you will save gas this way - Also, using A/C saves more gas while driving versus having the windows down or cracked.
