It is very common for vehicals to over heat in traffic or sit still situations because the engine is running at a low RPM and thus circulating the water slower causing it to hold temperature, also not much air passes through the radiator at a sit still the only air moved is by the fan which is not always very reliable. The AC compresser is not easy to turn and causes the engine to work hard in order to make the AC work. ==Rad. cooling fan== It may be that your radiator cooling fan is not working.
Check your timing belt!
When my water pump went on mine, my car would constantly overheat for no reason, there is a safety valve on the pump which lets coolant out of it when the car is running and pressure builds up. You have it pressure tested, the water pump will normally leak externally under pressure.
Are the fans in front of the condenser running?
If coolant is up to proper level and cooling fans are working - should not overheat
Chrysler does not have reset buttons.
Be sure the cooling fans are functioning when the ac is running.
It will overheat, unless you can successfully air cool it.
You dont want to stop your computers fan from running. It will overheat and break if you do that.
I believe I have an answer for this, or somewhat of and answer. I have a 1995 Chrysler LeBaron, and I have had it stall on me while it is running, or when stopped at a stop sign, then it not be able to start back up for a while, or sometimes it will start right up. I googled it one day, and what I stumbled across was that it supposedly is the fuel pump. The 1994 and 1995 LeBaron has a faulty issue with the fuel pump that causes the engine to stall, and a few of the warning lights to come on. I have had this happen to me about 4 or 5 times, and all in convienient locations. I found this question googling for more information on the topic. If I could site the page I read that at, I would. But if you google it, I am sure you will come across the same info I have. OR, try calling your Chrysler dealership. I have yet to do so, being as how ours just closed in town.
you tell me
It also has a sensor near the engine mount that needs replaced if it already ran hot. Its on the engine where the hose from radiator to goes to engine. One sensor is for coolant level and one for the temp sensor. Near the pulleys.
It will overheat, warp the basket and lid and adjacent plumbing. Then damage the seal, plate and bearings. Then quit running.
It could overheat or have process errors
Does vehicle overheat rapidly? Do you have heat? Does temperature gauge show that vehicle is running cold
The fuel pump runs constantly as long as the engine is running.
Defective cooling fan or bad fan relay.
Overloading or overclocking is when your system starts to overheat from running and processing so much in a time where it cannot cool down.
The car will stop running
The femoral artery is constantly at work regardless of your activity..sleeping, running, walking, etc.
As long as the engine is running, it is normal for the fuel pump to run constantly.
If your car has an automatic transmission, there will be a short dipstick near the front (radiator side) of the transmission. With the transmission warmed up (go for a short drive), park on a level surface, and with the transmission in park or neutral and engine running, pull the dipstick out and check the fluid level against the markings on the dipstick.
The part number for a 2000 Chrysler daytime running lights relay will be different for each manufacturer. Standard Motor Products sells this part as number RY-254.
