Thanks for the responses... the coolant looks brand new, when i pulled the theromostate neck off their was some crosion built up on the neck itself, but i think it is just cheep pot metal stuff. the oil is around 4500k and i usually change at 5k, looks good. i am leaning tward pulling the radiator out to have it checked...though i dont think this is it. the heater is hot and works great, woldnt that get clogged up if i had a sludging problem with the coolant? i have never been a fan of a chemical flush,,,seems to me to always cause leaks to develope. i hate to be a parts swapper, but i dont know what else to do, the only things left are the radiator and the waterpump, and the pump feels tight and is not leaking and does not make any noise.
my old 99 clutch fan would sound like a tornado locking in and out on the highway... this one i can hear but it is definatly not the same noise level...any comments on that?
i dont feel i have a head gasket problem, bc it doesent push any coolant out, and the coolant dosent look contaminated at all.
