Puking and Coolant Temps
Hey Gents, trying to figure out a slight problem i am having.
First, the truck had ARPs, Black Onyx Gaskets, Heads where checked, EGR deleted/removed back in March.
I have recently done a 3" front lift to clear the 35s the rear blocks not yet installed. See sig for how it sits.
The problem is i am puking coolant it seems and worse when towing (gutted and no motor/trans vw on a single UHUAL car transport so roughly at most 5k lbs. I can drain a reservoir quick say two hours or less and i have replaced it (reservoir) and the cap in the last two months.
I have read that when you change the height of the truck the coolant level should be set, adjust height and mark new FULL line. So could my problem be that i did the 3" lift on the front nothing on the back and essentially the res is over full with almost nothing in it?
Or could i have blown the heads/gaskets. Today when towing on the built in tow tune +65. the coolant temps were all over up to 230* and as low as 160* even the heat is retarded when the SCT is saying its on normal (190-195) . By all over i mean literally one minute 200-210 then plummet to 160-170ish.
help please !! thanks in advance... sigh
