SOURCE: Dodge stratus R/T 2002 antifreeze problem(antifreeze coming out the cap)

First the "service engine soon" light is a manufacturer installed reminder for you to get an oil change or other pre-determined maintenance service done. It is different than the "check engine" light which indicates a sensor malfunction. Secondly, when the engine is cold the thermostat is closed and the antifreeze or coolant is not circulating. The cooling system is a closed system and the tank that the cap is on is not an overflow tank but rather an expansion tank. This tank allows for the expanding coolant that is now hot to leave the engine coolant jackets, that won't expand, into a tank that can expand slightly. When your engine got to normal operating temp., aka.. hot, the thermostat opened allowing coolant to circulate and fill the expansion tank probably over flowing with the cap off. This is a normal operation for your car.

Heatdoesn't work, A/C blows out warm air and defrosts blow out cold air


Right think the problem is the heater core is blocked with corrosion ,now remove the bottom hose from the rad and the heater hoses then flush every which way you can including through the heater core reversing direction then ,refit all the hoses fill with water only and see if heater works if so the remove the bottom hose again and drain ,then add a minium of 3 litres of antifreeze ,its a anti corrosion agent as well as antifreeze and without it the internal of the engine will corrode and the slurry will block the heater first then the radiator ,

2006 Dodge Stratus, wouldn't shift had to drive home extremely slow, check engine light came on and checked codes got P0700


First p0700 is only a generic information code. If you haven't received another code you probably have one pending, have it scanned again. I would start by checking trans fluid level. I believe with the stratus you check you transmission with the car in neutral, at operating temp and on flat level ground with wheel chocks to make sure car doesn't move. fluid should be a nice red color and clean. If orange its probably burnt or in need of service, if black probably needs repairs. If that looks good depending on your code I would say a trans shift solenoid went bad. Keep me updated with that other code.

When my 2001 dodge stratus is cold and warms up the temperature gauge goes all the up too extreme hot then eventually comes down to normal. Is this a bad thermostat?


It sounds like a possible "sticking" thermostat.
I'd maybe flush the system and replace the thermostat just to be safe.
The cost of a gallon of antifreeze, a new thermostat, and some blue silicone gasket maker is a whole lot cheaper than replacing parts of an engine that overheats and warps...

Is there a certain type of antifreeze I need to use for my 2003 Dodge Stratus


Many believe that most brands will give you very similar protection. What is very important is that you are aware not to use full strength anti-freeze. You can buy pre-mixed if you don't want to mix the anti-freeze and water yourself.
Most recommend about 50% anti-freeze, and 50% water. be sure to check the instructions on the bottle.

I hope this helps you.

Dodge 99' Stratus Over Heating


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.
