Well, no, but you are talking 3-4 minutes tops But it's a $5 thermostat and easy to change It doesn't have to overheat to begin to cause problems

Your engine is TOAST when you reach 150K at best... drive it while you can. Go to a salvage yard. There a lot of beautiful Chrysler cars there with the 3.5L engine
