Question about Dodge Cars & Trucks
I did a flush and fill 2 months ago thinking the coolant was just old and replaced the upper radiator hose as it was swollen and weeping. three weeks later I noticed the coolant was starting to get milky again, a peach color (dexcool) and my brand new hose is now swollen and weepy again. the oil needs to be changed but it does not show any antifreeze in it. I took apart the throttle body and intake manifold, no signs of antifreeze and no cross over point in this style although the seal was bad and there was oil in it. coolant is now the consistency of pudding, the level never goes down but it has been leaking a little bit, engine has never over heated... not sure if it is the head gasket or maybe oil cooler?? any ideas??
Your head gasket is bad. the reason your oil doesn't look bad is because your oil pressure is higher than your coolant pressure. which would also contribute to you radiator hose damage.

hello your intake gasket is most likely leaking internally into your engine.pretty common problem.the plastic and silicon gaskets get weak over time.

As you've stated driving around town it's fine, and everything is working well. For the symptoms, there are 2 possible causes:
1. Your cooling fans are not working.
2. Your radiator needs to be replaced.
I'm sure you can determine which it is, and I wish you luck on your repair.
