BAD start to 2010

Was headin up north friday morning with my 4-place sno trailer and about 3 miles down the eway I overheated. Truck seems fine with no load, doesnt even puke, but as soon as it got a load it would overheat. Its goin in tomorw to get looked at but I was unsure if my ARP's were reusable. Im really hopin I have a cooling sys prob and not a gasket one, just had new gaskets 15,000 ago.

BTW I have been having probs with my heat as well, no heat at idle but as soon as I move gets nice and hot.

Sounds like a water pump problem. My truck was doing the same thing. No heat until you got going down the road. I replaced the water pump and that resolved my problem.

I know you have a 6.0 and I have a 7.3L but still I would bet the water pump is bad.

Could be a cooling fan issue also. Have you scanned for any codes?

just got truck back and waterpump and t-stat were both fine. The tune I was running when I overheated was one I had never ran before and I guess the truck didnt like it. I got my 100hp back on and doesnt puke at all. Doesnt make any sense to me but I guess im just gonna drive it and keep a close eye on things.
