1997 dodge 1500 over heating problems

Asked by Feb 16, 2016 at 11:10 PM about the 1997 Dodge Ram 1500

Question type: General

Not sure what trim my pickup has but its a 5.9 ltr
engine and it over heats the coolant isnt
circulating.  Ill start it and it will warm up normal
then after it warms up it will over heat. Check the
coolant before you start it and all of the coolant
will be in tje overflow tank. I fill up the radiator and
it will spit all of the coolant out of the overflow and
all of the stuff out of the radiator. I have put like
three thermostats in it and im not sure whata going
on. Another thing is once its warmed up it wont
hold oil pressure. Help please?
