2000 Dodge Stratus engine loses power once engine is hot

2000 Dodge Stratus V6 engine loses power once engine heats up, runs like a top when cold. Replaced all wires, spark plugs, distributor cap, crank sensor, gaskets and punched a hole in the catalytic converter to rule out blockage. Mechanics are baffled, gave up.

My dodge 1998 dodge stratus its not over heating on the gauge but its boiling in the over flow container what would be the problem?


It is normal for the coolant to flow back and forth at varying temperatures. is it actually boiling over and losing coolant or just flowing in? Also checking it when it is warm and making sure it is at the full hot mark and again at full cold mark when it hasnt run-i.e. in the morning before its been run that day. if you are not actually losing coolant though you dont have a problem.

I dont think you need a engine rebuild. Have him test the ignition system, basic tune up, also have him check the fuel pressure when cold and hot compare them.

Engine runs hot on 2001 Stratus R/T 3.0L V6


Hello, as previously suggested by my collegue it appears you have an air lock. Have you tried parking the vehicle on level ground, from cold with radiator cap off start the car and leave it idling. Make sure the fluid/coolant levels are o.k. and let the engine reach operating temp. Keep some warm water handy and watch/listen the water/coolant system (Keep a safe/sensible distance from radiator) hopefully after a while the system will bubble and boil up let it settle for a few seconds and then top up with very warm water do this until it hopefully stops belching out of radiator. Replace cap and hopefully top and bottom hoses will be warm. Oh! nearly forgot keep all heater controls on hot with blower on full..(Inside the vehicle)
Finally I'm not joshing but is the thermostat in the right way round and functioning correctly? to test drop it in some boiling water it should open almost immeadiatly.
sorry for the epic but I'm here to help and hopefully save you time and money.
Good luck and a Happy New Year to you and your family!

ck the coolant level, if low, top off and ck for leaks. then see if the heat comes back. if coolant level is good and engine temp guage is in the middle, flush heater core. if engine temp is too low, replace thermostat.
