I have 1998 dodge ram 1500 with a 318 it was recently leaking from the water pump I changed the gasket and checked the pump. Now its not leaking but when driving overheats very rapidely, not when idling, and when it overheats it leaks antifreeze from the heater line right at the pump, its also not getting any heat, there was no heat issue b4 could it just be the thermostat or is the likely culprit the water pump itself

check intake manafold for leaks put a pressure tester on it craftmans has them or harber frait do not go over 15 lb pressure or you rupture your new radator. then cheak for leaks sometimes youll have to have patents but its worth it
this sounds like you might have a blown head gasket, what you will have to do is get it compression tested to see if you have a leak you have changed all the normal parts that would normally cause overheating, so looking at the information you have given i would say its a blown head gasket...hope this helps
