ENGINE STALLING/COOLING SYSTEM WONT GET ANY TEMP

Dodge Ram

I have a 97 ram 1500 5.2 at 4wd, engine dies during rapid deceleration, cornering or anytime slower speeds cause me to lift out of the throttle. Sitting in park, engine idles good, if I rev the engine to 1500 or so rpms, as it idles down it stalls everytime. No trouble codes, but it has been kinda cold, 15-20 degrees lately. Also, after 20 miles of driving, rad is ice cold, coolant inside is cold, with lower hose barely lukewarm, left rad tank barely warm, upper hose and rs tank cold, rad cap cold, barely lukewarm heat in the cab. Help? Thx in advance

It sound like the thermastat is stuck open, not letting the anti freeze and water to heat up. You say the lower hose gets warm, so it is circulating. The stalling may be from the throttle response module? Check the wires
