check the coolant mix should be 50/50 if you do not have 50/50 coolant and water it could cause problems also take a hose and clean the radiator of anything that may be blocking the flow of air through the radiator if this does not work see if the fans are running if they are then take the car to a mechanic and ask them to pressure test the head shord only cost about $20. ALSO it might be our head gasket. mine did that too When the A/C is on the engine has more of a load on it due to it have to now also turn the a/c compressor, since the engine is working harder with the a/c on it will overheat faster

Do you need a different belt if you take your air conditioner and power steering off of my 1995 dodge neon?

Yes, if the belt driving the A/C was driving anything else. See if Dodge sold the 1995 Neon without A/C. If so use that belt layout. The AC and power steering are run on the same belt. my 95 neon lost the AC a while ago and the belt was simply replaced with a smaller one that just drives the power steering and leaves the AC out.

Unless you are a qualified A/C technician with the proper tools, I do not recommend you work on the A/C, other than changing a belt. Leave this to the professional.
