Just did this for my truck plus bearing assemblies. The wife was complaining about all the time I was spending in the garage and on parts. What did I save going DIY to quiet down the spousal unit?

Washed the exterior and cleaned the interior like I do for every trip. Did the inside of the windows, which I only do once a year or so. I noticed that the interior really doesn't get very dirty even though it can be thousands of miles per trip. It cleaned up nicely. I'm proud of my 20 year old truck.

I'm leaving in a few hours for Charlotte NC to pick up a hobby-car for myself. The truck will turn over 200K on this trip, 85K since I purchased it 6 years ago. Hopefully it will cackle along trouble-free like it has always done on cross country trips. This is my 4th coast to coast round trip in this truck. It eats miles even towing the enclosed trailer.

[QUOTE=

I would expect most modern vehicles have some sort of isolator similar to the concept of the DieselSite deal, to serve the same purpose of more effective & efficient cooling. My understanding is that is exactly what Ford did after (I think the date I read) 2002. That Oem part can be hard to come by and based on my research the DieselSite setup is far better quality than what one can gather up at local part house.

Pretty happy with my $25.00 heater core mod. When the dial is turned to Max AC, the vacuum line blocks flow. We're seeing 110+ temps here in Phoenix lately. A/C is ice cold with it compared to last summer.

Is that the one from dieselsite?

Got my new radiator in today and new AC (it was still under warranty at least so no cost there).

It's not. It's a Motorcraft part for this purpose. I believe it was used on the Rangers. My wife was "this is colder than my car" today. She has a 2015 VW.

Where did you get it and does it come with the vacuum hose and the hose clamps with it? I haven't seen it for only $25.

Amazon unfortunately. 3 parts. Looks like the prices went up. Could be $40 now

Hose clamps were separate as they usually are. Easy mod and well worth it.

Thanks. I'm thinking I might use the spring clamps though so I don't accidentally overtighten and break the plastic connectors.
