Question about 2003 Dodge Stratus
I dont think its the water pump. sounds like somethings blocking the coolant flow. possibly the radiator or thermostat. if you have the 2.7 engine the water pump is driven by the timing chain. if you have the 2.4 its driven by the timing belt

From the description you've given it seems like your water pump isn't pumping water efficiently enough at idle speeds. Do you hear a chirping or any sound from the water pump? Does the belt squeak?

That noise is probably the air injection system which is part of the emmision system. When it is making that noise, open the hood and determine where it is coming from, note if it is a mechanical sound, etc. The air injection if equiped would sound almost like forced air scaping somewhat like an exhaust leak, but less intense.

SOURCE: 98 intreped stalls after getting warm, about 1/2 on temp. gauge. Then it will not restart fo 15 to 20 min. Also sometimes after driving and shutting down it will not restart untill after sitting for a
98 and 99 intrepid was manufactured with weak fuel pumps causing them to vapor lock try pouring cool water on the fuel rails on the intake to calm vapored gas then try to start it. Even the temp gauge at half way mark is probably still low on coolant causing engine to be warmer than normal causing the vapor lock to fix this problem replace the fuel pump with a 2000 or newer intrepid fuel pump that carries a little higher psi to prevent vapor lock from reoccurring this pump is compatible with your 98 it will plug right in
