Hi this sounds like you might have a blown head gasket, what you will have to do is get it compression tested to see if you have a leak you have changed all the normal parts that would normally cause overheating, so looking at the information you have given i would say its a blown head gasket...hope this helps

Have you checked out the water pump? Most of the time, you can feel movement in the /head shaft area before it fails. Water pumps usually go slowly, pumping less and less water (making the engine run hotter). The also get noisy when they start to fail.

Heater only blows cold air in my Dodge stratus 2.4 but air conditioner works. I plan to change my thermostate going to my motor. I hope there's only one to change, and not another for the heater itself....


Put your gloved hand on the radiator in the front of your car - if it is hot - then the water in your heater core will be hot. If it is hot in the radiator - and not in the heater core - make sure your water level is up to the top in the radiator itself. 2 - make sure the 'heater' switch inside the car is working. 3 - look under the hood for a shut off valve - after market as some people put these on to make the ac colder on cars that begin to go bad.

Chances are you're low on water in the front radiator -

Also a simple check which is cheap should be done by your regular mechanic. If you don't have a professional Mechanic - get one.

Need to get this fixed remove water pump pully on 99' dodge 5.9 liter


You will need a special holding wrench made by "LISLE TOOLS" or "OTC", most tools stores stock it
its fairly cheap, looks like a long thin como wrench, and might com in two pcs, one for fan clutch.
good luck
