Low on coolant, stuck thermostat, cooling fans not working, possible airlock in the cooling system. radiator cooling fins plugged up with dirt,debris,cotton from cottonwood trees ( I see that in my area because of alot of cottonwoods ) the radiator is corroded and causing an internal restriction.
A bad radiator cap can cause overheating ,(for every pound of pressure the radiator cap contains it is worth about 3-4 degrees )
Is it physically overheating as in it is boiling over, or does the guage just reads too hot ? If not you may have a inaccurate guage. Hope this gets you pointed in the right direction.

I have a 1996 dodge intrepid with a diagnostic code 1255. Could someone please tell me what that code means?


If you had two blinking CEL codes, a 12 (pause) and a 55, the code 12 means the battery has been disconnected within the previous 50 starts. The code 55 indicates the end of stored codes. Therefore, you have no saved trouble codes (disconnecting the battery deletes saved trouble codes).

1996 Dodge Intrepid: Could someone tell me where the engine ground strap goes to and from. I know mine is broken. Could this be the reason I suspect a problem with BCM? Airbag lite on and off, lose


The earth strap goes from any solid mount on the engine to any solid mount on the chassis. I dont know if this will help solve all of your problems but it certainly wont do any harm.

1997 Dodge Intrepid stalling


My car did the same thing and it was the altanater. I most likely spelled that wrong. So if you haven't got it fixed yet you should take it in and get it checked. It only takes 10 min and they can tell you what it is. Good Luck.
