Hey guys, so I have a 2000 dodge dakota with the 5.9l in it. I bought the truck a few months ago and it had been running fine from point A to B. However, the first time I drove over 25 minutes it started to overheat it seemed. When I caught it, it was already red lined and pulled into a parking lot to check it out. When i got outside i quickly smelled coolant and there was a puddle on the ground, it obviously came from the reservoir. It has continued to do this. We already took the thermostat out and flushed the coolant to see if that was the problem. It still does it. Planning on replacing some of the tubes but kind of lost on where to go. Any suggestions or info would be greatly appreciated
