If you can repair it yourself, then keep it.

If you like the truck, have it repaired.

If you want something new, then sell it.

Yeah that about sums it up. Can't fix it myself. Have you ever run across fuel in the radiator? I'm guessing it will cost $3K low end up to about $6K. This truck already had a head gasket replaced at about 80K.
