My 2001 dodge stratus is over heating

Asked by Sep 10, 2011 at 01:43 PM about the 2001 Dodge Stratus

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The light in my car came up that my car was running hot while i was driving on the interstate so i pulled over and turned the car off. I sat there for 30 min and let it cool. After that it didn't run hot at all. I started to head a bubbling noise under the hood and had someone check it. They said it was my thermostat so i replaced it. My car was still running hot after I replaced it. Then i was told it was my water pump and I had that replaced. And my car is still running hot after I've replaced the thermostat and the water pump. What could be the problem?

I think you should check to see if your radiator hoses have collapsed or not, it's usually something simple as that cuz if your hoses have never been replaced that should be the first check...NOT termostat and definately not the water pump especially if it's not leaking. Oh and check to ensure the radiator is free flowing if not then that could also be your culprit.
