do you drive in dusty and dirty conditions? Maybe you should try and power wash your radiator. Get all that dirt and muck off of it and it may help

I had this problem with a Toyota some time ago with high mileage. Would start to overheat on highway, especially when climbing hills. To get it to cool down, I just had to stop and let the car idle, and it would cool down again. Turned out to be a 75% blocked radiator - flushing did no good - they had to rod it out, and that finally fixed it.

The infamous "coolant gunk" problem reported in this forum affected 3.5 as well as 6.1 liter engine Chargers. Did your car have this problem, and if so, did you have the issue addressed/fixed? If not, that might be contributing, and you may need a better flushing out of your cooling system.

A leak at the water pump usually means your water pump is bad or getting ready to go bad. Might want to have that addressed sooner rather than later.
