HELP NEEDED: Running Hot/Almost
I am thinking that I have a Thermostat stuck closed, but I am not sure. Any Ideas would be great.
I was going to work this morning and noticed that I had no heat in the cab. It was a little chilly so I turned it up to find all I had was Cold Air comming from the vents. This was odd to me b/c after 10-15 min of driving there is ususally way too much heat. Then I got to checking the guages. The OE temp guage was a little on the high side and would rise and fall depending on how long I was holding down on the skinny peddle or coasting down the hill. My after market water temp guage on the other hand seemed to be slowly increasing.
I have a 30min. drive into work in the morning and by the time I got there the aux guage was reading about 210 F. I am not the brightest but this is not normal or good.
Got to work and shut the truck down. Nothing smelled Hot or was spilling on the ground, so either I am out of water or I have it and it is just not moving. I was still pretty dark here at 5:30 so I'll have to give it a good checking when I get off at 6.
If anyone has any ideas, please let me know.
