SOURCE: cooling system requires burp.
I had the same problem with my 1997 Dodge ram 5.2 liter truck. I changed the water pump and it was actually that little o-ring on the heater hose that fits into the water pump on the top right side of the water pump. Also that metal piece on the return heater hose erodes after a while and rusts because it fits inside the water pump. I changed the metal part of the heater hose and the o-ring. I even changed the thermostat because it was easy to access. After I changed all of that I still heard the water running when I would rev the engine. After further investigation, I found that my bypass hose was leaking. The leak was small so I didnt see water on the ground and when the engine was hot it would just evaporate. Changing the bypass hose was more difficult than the water pump. You have remove so much just to get at a 3 to 4 inch hose. After I changed it, I filled up the radiator AGAIN and left the radiator cap off for about 10 minutes and added coolant as the level dropped. It worked, no more water running sound. Hope this helps.

It's a big job. Drain the coolant down, recover the freon in the ac system and disconnect the lines and heater hoses. Lower the steering column, remove the instrument panel assembly, remove the heater housing. Split the case halves on the housing and there you are. Usually around 500 to 700 dollars at a dealership.

Easiest way to bypass a heater core is to disconnect both inlet and outlet hoses at the engine firewall. Install a right angle hose coupling in each hose. Then install a straight piece of hose to connect the two hoses.

Welcome to FIxYa.com
Check the fluid. And Check the vacuum to heater control valve. And as well as to the dash climate control ctr.
