I would have this vehicle checked for exhaust gases in the cooling system. I have seen several that either failed a head gasket or had a cracked /porous head that resulted in compression leaking into the cooling system. This causes air pockets and makes the engine run hot. There is a simple chemical test to check for combustion gases in the coolant system, most shops will have the kit or you can purchase one from your local NAPA.

Whats the typical time frame it takes to replace the head gaskets
Dodge Mechanic: Ted G., ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

If it just needs head gaskets you are looking at about 10 hours labor.
