The thermostat gage in the car is getting above the half way mark but there is no smoke coming out of the hood, but sometimes feels like it is going to die out then the oil light comes on. What could be the issue?"

Try back flushing the heater core. I had this happen twice now, once
when I bought the truck and just last year. I have owned my 98 Durango
for 4 years now and have had my fair share of troubles, but the one you
described fit last years trouble to a T. I lost my heat and it was
overheating, when I took it to the garage we replaced the thermostat but
it did not give heat so they back flushed the heater core and that did
the trick. Unfortunately, now a year later, I think we have to do it
again as the problem is coming back. Chalk it up to a Dodge, and I'll
never buy one again
