99 DODGE STRATUS RADIATOR OVERFLOW BOTTLE

WHEN DRIVING IN THE ARIZONA HEAT, AND I TURN OFF THE CAR, MY OVERFLOW RADIATOR BOTTLE SOUNDS LIKE IT IS BOILING. I HAD MY HEADGASKETS REPLACED 3 YEARS AGO, NO OIL LEAKAGE SINCE THEN, BUT THE CAR SEEMS TO OVERHEAT. WHAT CAUSES THE BOILING NOISE?

    Sometimes, but If I turn on the heater for a few minutes it goes back to normal temperature. I don't seem to be leaking any radiator fluid.

Double check that your rad cooling fan is operating as it should, but after that, I'd be looking at a good rad flush, or rad replace. Believe it or not, your heater core is like a small rad, and when you turn the heater on, it actually cools the circulating coolant, slighly,and therefore shows a difference on your gauge. Like I said, make sure the rad fan is coming on when engine temperature is at normal or slightly higher, and if it is, then I'd be taking a close look at my radiator, especially if it wasn't replaced when headgasket was done.

Sounds to me you either needs a theromstat or water pump. Its one of the two.

Overheating dodge stratus


Do a Compression Test on the Engine and see if you have a Blown Head Gasket. Chances are that is what is causing the Overflow... Exhaust Pressure is getting into the Cooling system

I just bought a 2004 ES. Radiator Overflow has boiling water after engine runs for a little while. Also, where is the radiator cap?


might not be a radiator capon this one - some mfgr's went to that design,. to fill it would be the overflow tank.
Possible thermostat or water pump issue..

Heat is not working - coolant was low so filled it.... problem here... heard something about an air pocket


If you dont have an external coolant leak anywhere under your hood that has shown up on your driveway it could be the intake manifold or the headgasket leaking. Also check the thermostate to solve the heat issue.

Heater only blows hot when accelarating 2004 dodge stratus 2.7 could it be a thermostat or a sensor


You may just be low on coolant. When the car sitting cold open the radiator cap and check the level in the rad. Fill the rad. up and then the overflow tank to the cold line. Check this and get back to us.

Overheating slowly


Make sure the radiator cooling fans are both coming on when the A/C is turned on. This cools down the condenser which is mounted in front of the radiator. Dodge has had issues with the fan controls for years. There is a fan control module which turns the fans on when the a/c is activated or the engine temp reaches a prescribed level. I would replace the thermostat as well if the vehicle has been previously overheated or has high mileage. Good luck

Dodge 99' Stratus Over Heating


Overheating going down the road is usually caused by a faulty/clogged radiator. There isn't enough flow/cooling effect. Check for debris in the fins, or replace the radiator.
