determine WHY its overheating first. Are there leaks in any of the hoses? relace the hose. Is the fan turning on? if not, repair fan and or temp switch that turns it on. Is there oil in the water or water in the oil? If so, head gasket repair. Is there white smoke coming out the exhaust? if so, head gasket repair. Is there pressure(many bubbles) in the radiator? water blows out? if so, head gasket repair. Also any cracks in the radiator itself? Easily sealed if so. It needs to be refilled with coolant that empty? Solution= fill it...with a good water mixture in the radiator as well. As mentioned above water in the oil is not'll look "white-ish". ********************* Another question is "How do you know it's overheating? What are the symptoms?" When my temp gauge spiked recently, it turned out to just be a failed Temperature Sending Unit. (The cooling system was working just fine, my thermometer was broken...)

Dodge Stealths were notorious for being expensive to fix. Many or most of the parts were specially made for the model.

I'm not a mechanic but, I had to replace my radiator to fix the overheating problem on my 1994. That was the last thing I replaced after replacing the water pump, thermostat, and replaced my fan with a clutch fan. have not had anymore problems with it overheating once the radiator was replaced. Flush the coolant first then replace the radiator. Hope this helps.

I believe it is located under the distributor cap. At least that's where it is located on a 1991 dodge colt 1.5 litre.
