Question about 2000 Dodge Intrepid
You may very well have damaged the cylinder head. Once you have the new radiator in you should test it to see if you were lucky. Sometimes driving a car without water too long causes the cylinder head to warp. If it is not bad they can skim the head and you can put it back on with a new gasket. Depending on the type, cast iron or aluminum will determin if you need a new or good used head. I hope this will help.

Radiator fins dirty, clean with a strong stream of water, not high pressure water.
Radiator clogged, have it boiled out, or replace.
Thermostat stuck open or shut, replace it.
Water pump worn out, can no longer move enough coolant, replace it.

Electric Fan(s) not working, Check the fan, relay, fuse and engine temperature sensor's.
