Question about 1999 Dodge Durango
Most common problems are external coolant leaks (resulting in low coolant level), failed thermostat, blocked radiator (external or internal), electric fan not coming on, clutch fan inoperative. Other causes less frequent are: improper coolant/water concentration (should be 50/50), head gasket failure, transmission slipping or engine running excessively lean or a bad pressure cap.
One thing certain though....repeated overheat and continued driving in overheat condition will result in an expensive failure (blown head gasket, cracked cylinder head or crank bearing damage).
Carefully check each item I've listed and correct whatever it is you find, then resume using the vehicle.
