The fan and pulley are loose on my '99 dodge durango which is shaking my belt off into the fan, what would cause this and how can I fix it

You have a bad water pump. Have it fixed ASAP, it can suddenly get worse and send your fan through the radiator! Pretty easy to replace, should cost you around $200 total

2003 dodge durango started overheating and now wont start. changed the water pump and put new battery and still wont start. What could it be?

ECT wont kill the engine. If it over heated and you kept driving it. You just might have blown the engine. Put a socket on the balancer bolt and see if you can turn the engine by hand. Clock wise.

While driving on the highway yesterday, my son's 2003 dodge durango over heated, the temperature gauge on the dashboard was not reading hot, we noticed a ticking sound from the engine, so I ask my son...

is the engine turning over? if not, then you may have expansion of the pistons which have lock them selfs in the bore of the cylinders and because you found the oil diluted with water you may have failed bearings, you may also have had water leak into the cylinder because of a blown head gasket creating a hydraulic lock. in this case remove spark plugs and try cranking engine if any water was traped it will come true the plug holes. Now if the engine is turning over when you try to crank the you may have blown head gasket and posibly a warp or cracked cylinder head. Seeing that you all had a faulty temp gauge or sending unit, that engine may have to be remove and torn down to find the extent of damage done. remove head first check for cracks,flatness and preasure test it.

My 2001 dodge durango is overheating an leaking coolant from a round plug type thing in the corner on the passenger side near the windshield

What exactly is the "round plug type thing" near the firewall [passenger side]? Is it a sensor of some type? I, too, have a coolant leak here on my 2001 Durango; its tucked in rather tightly near the hood/firewall corner. My electric fan is not kicking on; vehicle overheated tonight. (4.7 liter)

the upper rad hose goes from the rad to the thermostate housing. this hose is @2-21/2" the lower hose same size goes from lower rad to water pump. There is a 5/8 hose from water pump to thermostate housing called bypass hose. and you have two hoses from water pump and intake to the heater core. hope this helps if not let me know thanks
