What might the issue be with my 2002 dodge caravan overheating?


Hi, No you did not break anything. It just happened by coinsident.
You need to replace the thermostat and put new fluid in. Not just water. If it happens again do a radiator flush and check if fan is working properly. Good luck.

Why is my dodge ram overheating?


Sensor would just cause a check engine light and radiator caps hardly ever go bad. It's possible you put the thermostat in upside down. Also possible that a hose is clogged. More than likely you have a massive air bubble trapped in the engine block.

If I were you I'd be contacting a lawyer. That's a pretty bad story, sounds like every Dodge mechanic you took it to had their head where it didn't belong.

Overheating


If it runs cool when you are moving the fan clutch is probably weak. If it overheats when moving down the road you more than likely have a radiator problem. Make sure the fins on the radiator and clear from debris for max cooling system efficiency.

Check your rad hoses. They will tend to collapse (**** in) & cut down on flow at highway speeds, more than city, due to increased demand & flow on cooling system. If they don't feel relatively stiff, I'd change them. You might even see them **** in while sitting and revving the engine a bit.
