SOURCE: 2004 dodge ram is over
Water pumps can stall out, but do you have air trapped in system.
Had you recently had the system "open" to replace hose, thermostat, temp sensor. Some Ford and GM have a bleeder screw on a high point in cooling system to bleed out trapped air.
Check your trans fluid color. Since the trans cooler is built into radiator (automatics)
IF the engine is overheating the trans CAN overheat
IF the trans is overheating the engine CAN overheat
They share the same cooling source and trans fluid gets hotter than oil, but yet it has a wimpy cooler built into radiator. Maybe add trans oil cooler to system.
Also outside temp affects the cool down rate of the radiator, ie...hot air trying to cool down hot radiator/engine is less effecting than cool air cooling hot radiator/engine

If it's red, it's transmission fluid. Coolant would be green. Check the fluid level, don't let it get low, Chrysler minivans are prone to transmission troubles, and low fluid levels over time will ruin a a transmission. And be sure not to overfill, it's just as bad for the trans. Have the leak checked out and repaired, good luck

SOURCE: what would cause a 2004
Seems the smoke is the hot steam from the coolant. That escapes from your radiator. The culprit would be the radiator cap. The coolant when your engine is hot, goes to your coolant reservoir, and it( coolant ) should go back to the radiator when your engine cools down.
The coolant failed to go back to the radiator because the radiator rubber seal is already broken and suppose to **** the coolant from the reservoir. Coolant also escapes from the radiator, thats why you see some coolant from both sides of your radiator. The heat inside the radiator expands the coolant and the only course is through some crack seals.
Radiator cap have pressure rating that opens its valve in a certain pressure.
Hope that helps you out!
Thanks for seeking help from FixYa!
