2004 Dodge Stratus overheating issue without reading hot
2004 Dodge Stratus 2.7 flex fuel
coolant boils/ bubbles but the car gauge does not read hot. i replaced the thermostat and also the water inlet with the temp. sensor. car still does the same thing. i did the chemical test for exhaust fumes in the coolant but came up negative. i also burped the system a few times and pushed all the air out. the radiator has a super small leak but that it is. i also replaced the cap. last time the car was running the fans kicked on around 220 and the air was hot. the fans cut off for a little bit but when they came back on the air was cold coming from the fans. i am really leaning towards a blown head gasket. what is your opinion on this before i start doing all the work? thank you very much
i am thinking some sort of gas is leaking into the coolant causing the coolant to boil. this is why i am leaning towards a blown head gasket. also the oil was changed and it looked normal no coolant in the oil
Having the same problem with my 05 stratus sxt 2.7
