Thanks Ram Van. Appreciate quick response.. but now I believe the head gasket is gone as well .. maybe due to the Overheat? Oh and I've located coolant leak.. its coming from the weep.hole .. my theory is.. judging from leaky. Weep hole, the water pump failed,failed causing it to run hot...causing it to blow HG.. it stalls at a dead stop (something it never did) and now idles at 500, but used to idle a strong 750..and I've got no cabin heat.. its gotta be HG Right? Please tell me its not a nightmare fix. Im undoubtedly Goin to replace water pump/thermostat/& flush coolant system still.. but it looks like I've got a little more on my plate now.. I love the truck. Its my first cummins and im sold, I just hope that's the worst of my problems with her..

Thanks again.
