If it's a cracked head, the engine will need a new head. If it's a cracked block, you'll need a new engine. But it would be a good idea to take it to a reputable mechanic for a second opinion. Don't tell them what you think is wrong, just ask why it's leaking. Remember that when a dealership mechanic gets to have a good reputation, he'll often start his own shop. The best ones leave the dealership. The dealership is not necessarily the best place to take your vehicle.

Why is water leaking on passenger floorboard of 2003 dodge Dakota?

Have you used your air conditioning lately? The most common reason for water to appear to be leaking on the passenger floorboard is that the condensation drain for the air conditioning is plugged. Unfortunately, the drain is pretty much inaccessible to the average person and I have yet to discover a reasonable method of clearing it other than paying the dealer or a mechanic to do it. The other, less common causes for that type of leak is that the heater core is leaking, in which case the fluid will be antifreeze rather than water, or the door seal on the passenger door may be leaking, or the windshield gasket may be leaking.
