I know this sounds brutal but if you can get a pipe wrench on it and apply even pressure is may just come lose. Also tapping it with a hammer to brake the bond, and I mean tap not hit, before using the wrench.

Has moisture on inside oil cap and no water in the oil. Vehicle runs fine

This is very common on the 4.7 Rams, internal moisture collects there and forms a white sludge in the neck and on the cap. I have battled this myself on my 04 1500 and found there isn't a solution. As long as the oil in the pan isn't milky you're ok. P.S. A new oil cap is no help.

2004 Dodge 1500 4x4 with 4.7 V8 getting hot. Replaced therm, water pump and tested Radiator. Still gets hot very quick. The water is cycling thru block, but not coming back into overflow when getting hot....

Do you have anti freeze in it? did you replce the radiator cap? is the fan clutch good? is the AC condensor full of bugs and the radiator? are you low on transmisson fluid? or Motor oil? all these will cause it to get hot.
