Dodge viper: I have 01 Dodge Viper with 11k miles, I rarely…

Customer Question
Hi I have 01 Dodge...
Hi I have 01 Dodge Viper with 11k miles, I rarely drive the car, when I drove the car before my coolant temp was always in 190degree mark no matter if it's 90degrees outside or 50, about a week ago I was driving on a freeway and all of a sudden temp gauge went all the way to red and the coolant light came on. I stopped the car right away didn't notice any steam. The coolant level was good. After I drive the car the coolant level stayed around 220 or so. Today I drive the car again and the temp flexuate from 200-230, the coolant level is full the fens are working, no steam. What can it be?

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
The problem you are having if you are sure the cooling system is full and the fans are operating properly sounds very much like your thermostat is sticking and just due to the age of it alone I would start with replacing it and see if it clears the problem. I suspect it will .

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
