Hello and thank you for your question,

Unfortunately there is on code scan that Auto Zone can do that will tell you anything more then what fault codes are setting if the check engine light is coming on.

Normal oil temp will be right at engine temp reading and normal engine temp should be right at 195 plus or minus a couple degrees. The transmission will usually run about 10 degrees cooler the engine and oil temp. What type of problem are you having?

Is there a code at the delership that I can point to in the onboard computer to prof that the car was in an accidentThere is minimal damage from the outside really. The number is ***** little lose but that can happen from parking were it gets caught in the sidewalkI want to make sure not to start a holly warThe violent and engine light is rising that is all the car feels goodI am going to chafe oil today and flush radiator see if that will fix it
Dodge Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Unfortunately no, there is no code that can prove its been in an accident. What type of problem are you having with it, is the check engine light coming on? Is the engine running bad?

No it is just overheating and but it takes about an hour of drivingand has not really affected it I am more concerned over long term issues
Dodge Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Okay I see, I would go ahead with the oil change as well as the cooling system flush, and after doing so make sure the cooling fan is operating normally and you may also want to consider replacing the thermostat before doing the flush. In most cases if there is a major concern you would know it right away,

What is the cost of chaging thermostatHow much does it cost to put the bumper back in placeIf they have to replace the jocks or the entire bumpers. What is the cost of this
Dodge Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

There thermostat is about $22.00 and the labor is right at one hour to replace plus coolant. . In order to know the cost of the bumper repair you are going to need to have it looked at by a body shop to determine how much damage has been done.
