Overly hot water pump, gauge normal?
Ok, got a question. Just replaced my water pump (again), t-stat and fan clutch. Run the truck and temp gauge stays in the middle of normal range but the water pump and hpop reservoir are hot as a firecracker. It seems to me to be way to hot. I did pull the plug on the reservoir to check the oil temp w/ a meat thermometer and it only read 160. Just feels to me that the pump and reservoir are way hotter than that. Any ideas on what to look at for a possible cause? Or am I being paranoid and they are supposed to be where you can't even hold a finger on them? Just don't remember them ever being that hot. Thanks!
