OVER HEATING

2003 Dodge Ram • 117,315 miles

Have an 03 dodge 1500 with the 4.7L in that is overheating but it is not the thermostat and it is not making oil and I cannot find where it is going what are my possible causes and solutions I pulled the thermostat off and tested it it still opens and you could fill oit with antifreeze and 10 miles down the road it would over heat and it have almost no antifreeze in it

Some possibilities for leaks, thermostat housing gasket--water pump--heater return tube o-ring at the water pump-- intake manifold gasket-- timing cover gasket.

There is no coolant in your oil? I can't think of anything else at the moment.
