Keeping my truck warm... thoughts?
I am just curious if this is a common thing or if i might have a t-stat which doesnt close all the way... or just opens to soon now.
Living in montana, its cold, a LOT. My truck starts great and runs awesome in the cold, only issue i have is litterally any time i drive below freezing(not that cold) is the EBPV is always shutting trying to keep warm, it functions fine as if i give it throttle it hops open and same with going to idle.
I can drive around for an hour in town, let it sit and idle, it never stays warm, coolant temp is in operating temp but below center of range (summer position) it just seems like the thing cant get itself warm even for long periods of driving. I wouldnt mind but driving with the EBPV active ALL the freakin time makes for some bad milage! feels like the brakes are on. Also, truck warms up just fine as far as speed, 5 miles and shes blowing hot air and in operating temp.
Just seems strange that it cant get warm enough to shut the valve off unless im driving straight up hill with a trailer on.
