My 2003 dodge stratus overheats after about a mile of driving. It doesn't blow hot air when I have it on full blast. It also doesn't take coolant from the reserve. I replaced the thermostat recently.

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Does anyone have any idea what it
could be?

You have air in the system. Is your cap on the radiator or is it on the over flow tank ?

Ok it's not in the front it's by the tank and next to the engine. The top radiator hose gets hot and doesn't feel like there is any pressure in it also.

Ok fill anti freeze to full level and leave cap off . Start engine and let reach normal operating temp when stat opens up anti freeze level will drop add more anti freeze

to full level then put cap back on. This should take care of your problem.
