If it overheated, the heads are aluminum. Aluminum heads warp very easily.

There will be a bolt in the center of the pulley and it will need to be removed and you will need a puller to remov the pulley. the pulley needs to come off evenly or it will bind, this i why you need thepuller, you should be able to get a cheap one for about $ 25.00 . when you go to get one tell them at the store what you need the puller for so you get the correct one. this puller is also good for removing steering wheels.
How ever the timing chain cover seal should not have water coming out of it. it sounds more like a head gasket or a frost plug.

Hello there:
what i would suggest is to remove all of the mats that you can and stasrt the vehical and turn on the heater and let it run for a while and see if there is any water leaking from there if no water is noticed get a water hose and run water all around the windshield and than inspect from the inside to see fi there is any water coming in anywhere and if ther is than you will need a new windshield gasket there may also be a leak between the cab and the firewall so check to see if thereis any plugs that are missing or any place that hoses are going thru the firewall to see if they have a gap in them allowing water to leak in and cracks in the cab floor will get water in there too ok?
so please try these i hope that this has been very helpfull for you
best regards michael

My dodge ram 1500 is overheating and burning the coolant. I already changed my radiator and the thermostat, and it's not leaking but I can smell like burnt coolant, I have to be putting more cooling every...


I would defiantly check the water pump, can you feel pressure in the rad lines? when you changed the rad and thermostat out, did you run your vehicle without the rad cap for awhile to ensure that there was no air locks within the system?
Water pump is located at the front of the engine behind the fan.
Good Luck! hope this helps.
