05 6.0 Excursion running hot

I am having problems with overheating, I am wondering if the fan may not be running as fast as it should. Is that possible? It seems to be running too slow to me. Is there a test that is simple I that can run?

Rolls there are a few common problems that happen to the 6.0 that could cause a overheating problem. Have you had any previous work done to the truck? any stuff replaced under warranty? More info is needed here. Any mods on the truck?

I dont personally know if there is a test you can run, but I would think the fan is either its on or its off type thing and you might have a underlying issue causing the overheating

Awesome thread on oil / cold start issues for 6.0 ---->

Mods

The exhaust is as straight pipe, no muffler or cat. I had a EGR bi-pass put in, replaced the head bolts with studs and replaced the oil cooler that was about 4 months ago. Everything was fine until last week. I replaced the map sensor yesterday. No loss of water until the pressure is too great for the cap.

What would cause the water pressure to be too high when the water is still cool?
