05, 2.7 liter dodge stratus.

Asked by Aug 10, 2017 at 11:07 PM about the 2005 Dodge Stratus SXT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 05, 2.7 liter straits started running
hot. I replaced water pump, thermostat,
upper & lower hoses, any related
hoses, radiator, resivor, hard wired fans,
fresh anti freeze and added royal
purple coolant that is suppose to make
it like 20 degrees cooler, bypassed
heater core, the water outlet on top
that has coolant switch in it, ran the big
bottle of barsleak block seal, made
sure there was no water and oil mixing.
There wasn't. The entire cooling
system is new. Oh and new belt. Yet it
is still running hot. We bled the air out
the system. There isn't any water
leaking externally that we can see. It
has been in the shop where a case
certified mechanic was doing the work
at least 5 times for this problem. It
does okay just round town. Hit the
interstate r ride with the a.c. on and I
run hot. We also tested it with that blue
chemical in a presure tester that would
change the blue chemical that turns
green if it detects any exhaust r fuel
vapors in the resivor which would b a
blown head gasket. It bubbled up thru
resivor but stayed blue. I'm about to
loose my mind over this problem. Does
anyone have any ideas????? I would
really appreciate it. Please email me at
