It isn't necessarily the thermostat that is bad. When the thermostat goes bad, it usually gets stuck in the open position, because it never closes, and it won't effect the cooling of the engine. Or should I sat the overheating of an engine. Your thermo is located on the engine at the end of the top hose, a dome shaped fitting, it is in there, but,, the overheating could be something else. Check the top of your radiator for oil floating on there, check to see if there is steam coming out the exhaust, keep an eye on the water level, check the coolant, and don't run it if it gets hot. A compression check will tell exactly what is going on in there, if it is a head gasket, usually what happens when a car starts to overheat. Hope this helps.

I have a 2000 Chrysler LHS with the 3.5 engine. It began overheating and diagnostic code said it was the fan relay. Replaced, and continued to overheat. Water pump and radiator replaced less than 1 year...


Hello Lia, you did all the right things to fix it but there is some thing elise going on ,if your sure that ,thermostat is not in back wards and its not defective (they do get stuck )and fans are running on time the only thing left is the start of a head gasket ,eaven thoe coolant is clear and no coolant in oil, .did you purge all air out of motor, (no joke) you'll see 2 air purge valves on top of motor ,they look like brake bleeder valves,one on right side and one on left side traped air will cause over heating as well.
I really hope this helped you in some way .

1997 Chrysler LHS is overheating


If when you replaced coolant you noticed taht it fills slowly, the radiator could be internally blocked. Usually it can be flushed or if really bad, replace it. Also have the radiator checked for hydrocarbons...any in there tells you that there is a head gasket problem.

Replaced cracked radiator in 2000 Chrysler LHS but car still overheating. What could be the problem?


fix the radiator first.because coolant temperature sensor need to be in antifreeze.when antifreeze get up to 190 degrees. the coolant sensor act as a thermostat.it resistance decrease then the pcm will command cooling fans to run.if antifreeze low the coolant temperature sensor not going to work. engine is going to over heat.

Replaced cracked radiator in 2000 Chrysler LHS but car still overheating. What could be the problem?


I had the same problem. My Chrysler LHS kept overheating. I had the thermostat changed out first and it didn't help. Then I had the water pump changed out and still did no good. Then changed out the radiator, still overheated. Come to find out the people that changed my thermostat put it in backwards. Evidently, the thermostats for these cars look different from all the others and people are not sure how to put them in. I took mine to a Chrysler dealer and they fixed it for me.
