    My car is Dodge stratus R/T 2002 with 3.0 v engine.when I started the car yesterday I noticed the '' service engine soon '' light.so I checked all the fluid levels and everything seemed fine.but when I opened the antifreeze cap and started the car,I couldn't see the antifreeze moving and after a while when the car started to get hot,the antifreeze started coming out the cap.
    I'm not sure what exactly could cause this to happen, and I wish somebody can help me fix this problem.
    thank you !!

SOURCE: THEROMSTAT/ 2002 DODGE DURANGO???

make sure engine is cool then drain coolant by opening the drain plug at bottom of radiator. remove cap from radiator so coolant will continue to drain and when coolant is down enough to pull off upper radiator hose at intake then close drain, then remove two bolts at coolant housing and remove thermostate. clean gasket material from intake and housing and replace with new gasket and thermostate tighten bolts install hose fill rad with coolant water mix 50/50 and run engine with heat on floor until gets hot and you see coolant flowing in rad, install cap

The thermostat is located at the upper radiator hose end of the engine. The hose will connect to a housing that will have to be removed in order to change the thermostat.
While you have the thermostat housing removed, make sure you flush the old coolant out and replace with new.
Good luck.

Radiators do not "go out". They leak or they don't... that's it. You wasted money changing a radiator if you aren't loosing coolant. The thermostat (~$10) is all you needed to change.

Dodge stratus thermostat


I just replaced my thermostat and it is located below the alternator. You have to remove the alternator and the wiring to it and lift the car up. You will then be able to access the thermostat. You could prbably have a local shop fix it for around $175-$200.
