Dodge Caravan
Car Heaters

Is your new thermostat defective if the temperature comes up to normal but drops after driving short way or with the heater on on cold day in a 1999 Dodge Caravan?

Yes, I would suspect a bad T stat if it can't maintain normal temp on the gauge. Either that or your electric fan is running all the time.
