I have a 2000 Dodge Durango SLT 5.2L Magnum V8. This truck drives fine for about 10-15 mins and then it starts over heating. I've put a new Thermostat, Top/Bottom Radiator Hose, and the Water Pump and it still over heats. What could the problem be?? Radiator??

It's possible you have a bad radiator. You can feel different areas of the cooling fins if there are a lot of sections that are cold that would be an indication it's restricted.

Is it using any coolant? If so you may what to get it block checked to make sure you don't have a bad head gasket.

have you checked your fan clutch? What kind of air temp are you operating in when it does it? Have you ever flushed the coolant system? Does it blow white smoke or consume coolant when the problem happens? Sidom has a point about a possible head gasket. Hopefully its something more minor but we need more information to give you a direction to look on this one.
