If the thermostat is good, coolant is full, I would suspect a headgasket. Just because the oil looks good does not mean the headgasket is not leaking INTO combustion chamber. Pull the plugs and see if any have a green tint ( from antifreeze).Then I would have the engines cooling system pressure tested by a garage to see if head gasket is leaking. In my personal experience with head gaskets on dodge cars, and from others, it is almost always the cooling fan, mine would overheat, and the fan would not come on, so I simply wired the fan direct to a toggle switch, installed an actual temp gauge and voila, it is fixed, computer is not getting the signal from the sender switch or the inblock gauge, so I wired in a switch, just have to remember to shut it off when you shut the car off or you'll kill the battery. Not something to easily forget, you can really hear the fan when the engine is shut off.

It is overheating or the oil preasure is low. It probably needs a new engine.

A Dodge Shadow does not have a reset or shut off switch. The fuel system is computer controlled with relays.

If the engine is overheating or when you service the cooling system and change the antifreeze.

Not right away but can cause failure with coolant system components over a period of time that could produce a overheating condition. Very corrosive to metals as well. Recommend 50% water mixture to dilute anti freeze for proper protection.

Your truck is overheating because it needs a new radiator. I had the same problem, after I installed the new radiator and flushed out my remaining cooling system I never had a overheating problem since.

The vacuum lines go to various places on the 1994 Dodge Shadow. The engine, brake booster, even the air doors for heat and AC all operate with help from the vacuum system.

They stopped making the Dodge Shadow in 1995. There is no such thing as a 1997 Dodge Shadow. If yo want to know if a car has any recalls, call the dealer with the vin number and they will tell you.

You can find the 1991 Dodge Shadow thermostat in the thermostat housing. The thermostat housing will be on the front of the engine.
