Hey all, been chasing this problem a while so im putting to you pros for some advice, I thank you in advance for your input!
I have 04 F350 DRW. Having a problem with it getting hot when I go up grades and it is more pronounced when pulling my toy hauler.
What I notice is this, the fan will cycle on and stay on until I get home and drive on level roads for a while. Also it will get hot, the needle just about gets pegged idiot light comes on and I pull over and let it cool. If i baby it no problems just that annoying fan and runs a bit hot.
I also notice the coolant disapeares from the degas bottle but it finds its way back once I stop flogging it.
If I get on it around town "phoenix az 110 plus" I can get it to overheat way too easy. Not my first PSD
Also no puking out of the bottle! im not missing coolant at all so its not a head gasket and no I havent done studs yet but thats on my short list!
And not kicking any codes.
I have done the following trying to repair this issue:
Removed the coolant pump to look if its the upgraded model and look for broken vanes. It is the upgraded one and all is good.
Replaced the thermostate.
Replaced the Oil cooler and EGR along with new coolant.
Replaced the fan clutch
Tink I should throw a radiator at it maybe its clogged??????????????
Thanks for your help!
