Could be a thermostat, but being a Chrysler it sounds more like it blew a head gasket. You can get a DIY kit from your local parts store, just follow directions.

I looked up the overflow tank cap the one on it doesn't look right it is the silver radiator cap with the red push down like button online it say radiator cap

The red button is a pressure release, but your right that should not be on there, get one from your local parts store, it should just look like a normal radiator cap, no pressure release.
