Well it went in to limp mode when it got hot causing the weird shifting. Did they change the thermostat?

Water pump? Thermostat? cracked/warped head? Blown head gasket? leaking front cover in the water pump cavity? Should be easy to diagnose if preassure is getting into the cooling system-I assume there is plenty of coolant? Has oil ever got into the radiator, that'll cause the radiator to not work effectively, ask the 6.0 guys about their oil coolers! Had a bad sensor in a friends truck cause the gauge and fan to freak out, even though his was not actually getting hot...blowing the radiator does suggest you got way too hot. There was a TSB to fix the hose routing for the reservior or de-gas bottle, in some cases it was told to me that the cooling system would over-pressure and cause the radiator to start leaking and let coolant out, thus an overheat situation....

Keep in mind, if it got that hot before you got the radiator replaced, there could be some serious damage to the engine!!!...Why did they replace the radiator? Was it leaking before, getting hot sometimes? was the TSB done on the hoses before then?
