Help! Truck is heating up trying to find problem!
03 6.0 edge tuner and exhaust
Ive had this truck for the last 70k miles... it now has 160000
I believe it has had the so called "kettle whistle" since i bought with 90000
miles on it.
I have also had a heating up problem since i bought the truck under load.
If im pulling a trailer it will run 200-220 but not overheat and if im daily driving it runs from 180-195.
I have put on two new caps in the last year and had it pressure checked for head gaskets. Mechanic said no head gasket problem.
Is there something that will just make it overheat underload?
My brother just had his blow at 99000 miles.
Anything would be appreciated?
Has new egr valve and fan clutch... also flushed the coolant system with new coolant. I still drive this truck on a daily basis with no problems other than its a 6.0
