2004 dodge ram running hot when you stop

My 04 Dodge ram, with the 4.7 liter V-8, starts heating up at short stops or red lights. I changed the thermostat it was no help. Mydodge dealership says the saw no problems. It will sit and idle with the A/C on and does not get hot. Any ideas?

What kind of oil does a 86 dodge ram 150 take

That information is in the user manual. It also depends on what type of duty the dodge is encountering. Could be light could be very heavy, I do not know. You may stop by your friendly dealer, listen to a short sales pitch and get the answer from him if you do not have the manual. You may get it from one of the following links.

I'm not trying to insult you but are you sure that the thermostat was put in right side up? I have seen this happen and have done it myself. Hope this helps!

My 04 dodge 1500 keeps over heating when i turn the ac on or when im going up hills "why"

under maximium load your cooling system is struggling asuming you have an automatic transmission,it is cooled through the radiator,when running the ac your condenser is hot,right in front of the radiator,if your not leaking,and your anti-freeze looks bright green an clean ,and the fan or fans are working ,first change the thermostat,cheapest,remove the serpintine belt and inspect the water pump pulley,spin it by hand,try to tip it forward and backward,to see if it wobbles,it should spin smooth and quiet,if it has a chattering or growling feel,or the pulley wobbles change the pump,the only thing left is the radiator ,make sure that debri or something isnt stuck in front of it a small piece of paper is enough to restrict airflow,inspect the core is it turning green and the fins are falling out ,is the plastic shroud intact around it, lots of things could be going on ,the transmission could be low on fluid,and running hot,causing the excessive load on the radiator,disregaurd this if you have a manual.need more info to pinpoint further,hope this helps
