Question about Dodge Stratus
On the highway Driving approximately 15 minutes or so at posted limit. Car started to shake vigorously, Pulled into rest stop almost immediately. I turned off the car, there was not a lot of smoke but it was appearing to be overheating... Could not tell how much coolant was on the ground because it had been raining. I did not attempt to restart the car I had it towed to the shop... Sort of freaking out the day after Christmas if its a big expense. Any idea what I should anticipate when myI mechanic calls me tomorrow?

ok, is it losing fluid? check the floor board by the passenger seat, up under the dash, is it wet? Your heater-core may be shot. The core is tucked up behind your glove compartment. If it's plugged, water won't circulate and won't be able to be cooled, causing it to overheat.

SOURCE: engine overheating
the problem is your water pump some have a plastic impeller that brakes up which stop the water serculating around the engine thats what causes the engine to overheat. when you replace it make suer the impeller is alloy and change the thermastat has well just to be on the safe side. if its blowing out gray smoke the head gasket needs replacing as well
