Ok so i finally got around to getting my flush done. Pick up the restore/restore plus locally for about $40, the elc threw work for about $18 a gallon.
Back story first. this weekend started with plans of just getting my belt tensioner/serp belt and installing my new snowplow prep fan clutch. i figured why i have most of the truck apart at that time id start my flush by removing the thermostat.
Got to work, installed all my new parts, removed the thermostat. Poured in some water to make sure the truck ran and to help flush out some more of the gold sh*t. It ran. fan clutch seemed to be pulling more air then before but after a test drive all was fine.
Drained the water, and poured in the restore. topped off with some water. And off i went for my 1.5 hours cruise. 10 minutes in is where my list of concerns starts.
drove the truck, temperatures were not getting up there, been driving now for about 20-25 minutes. pull over check under the truck, nothing. pop the hood the degas bottle is overflowing of Bubble. slowly relieve the pressure and allow the bubbles to flow out. tighten the cap back up and off i went. again my temperatures were not getting up there. I was ranging from 100-128ect/105-130eot. i stopped again and again the bubbles were coming out of the degas bottle. I stopped 2 more times in my 2 hour drive. during that whole drive my temps stayed in that range.
Got home, drained the cooling system, all of it. Poured in some what, went for a spin around the block, still not temp change. drained again, same thing.
Im now on my 7 drain and fill after the initial restore was added. im still getting bubbles in the system and the fluid isnt getting any clearer, still a milky yellow. Temps still stay the same too.
Now i dont know if its because i installed the SnowPlow Prep fan clutch but it seems something isnt right here.
I really dont want to tear down the truck again to install my old noisy non-snowplow prep fan clutch at this point. i was hoping by now id at least see an increase in temperatures to make my thoughts of the fan clutch causing this but its just not making sense.
basic summary of concerns:
1. is the bubbles normal after restore
2. how long should i see them for
3. my eot/ect temperatures
4. my fan clutch being the possible route cause and faulty.
5. this is all normal im just overanalyzing this like i do all the time
Thank you in advanced for any and all help.
