engine coolant overheat 2007 F250 6.0

Hi everyone, I was pulling my boat Friday when i got an engine coolant overheat alarm, it was up to 235 when i saw it, i was in traffic and did not notice it going up until the alarm, I shut it down let it cool off, after that I turned it around and started home, turned off the AC and drove it home, as I was driving back the engine coolant ran about 208 average, in traffic it got up to 216. The EOT stayed with in 10 degrees of the ECT.
Next day put a new Thermostat in it, and it's running 204 EOT and 202 engine oil temp. Normal it runs 198 ECT.
Could it be Water pump or Clutch Fan needs to be replaced? Never have replaced either one, I had a new oil cooler put on last year. Was just wondering which direction to go, I was thinking of replacing both, but the Fan clutch is pretty expensive. Any suggestions?

how many miles ?
i consider replacing the water pump and clutch as part of preventative maintenance if you are anywhere near 150k i did mine much sooner just because I am far from home often and a tow $$ would suck

check you coolant condition or replace it latley ?

I personally think 204 for an ECT is not bad, provided this is in a very hot area like AZ. The thermostat is probably a 204 thermostat. If you are running that, I don't think there's a reason to add the clutch or water pump. The OEM thermostat fails in the open position, but a prior owner could have added a non-OEM thermostat and with the temps you see, I think you fixed it.

If you do decide on replacing one, I'd consider both, since you remove the clutch to get the water pump and it's only three more bolts to get to the water pump. Most of the work is getting the clutch off. With parts in hand, that took me 4 hours start to finish, and I'm rather slow, so I think a shop would do both the water pump and clutch much quicker.

My assumption with this is you did not need to fill the coolant. If you did, I'd start thinking something different like EGR or Heads, or a much easier to fix coolant leak.

zmann, I have 168,000 miles, and changed the coolant last year along with the oil cooler, and have never replace the clutch fan or water pump, today its running fine, but i did some more damage to the radiator plug, i checked for leaks and it was loose, and i just over tightened it, and plastic did not handle the extra turn, so now i need to drill it out and replace the plug!!
ChrisSki, that was my plan go ahead and change both and the belt also, it's hot as hell here in Kentucky, i have noticed that my air condition also is not blowing as cold when just at an idle, not sure if that is a coincidence or what?

The 7.3 clutch definitly spins more at idle. Don't know if the fact that i installed or not, but my A/C seems better especially at idle with the 7.3 clutch compared to the 6.0 clutch . IMO that's the 7.3 clutch moving extra air moving over the condenser. I think a bad 6.0 clutch would make the AC warmer.

Well I found out it was the wire going to clutch fan had gotten severed by the fan blade, looks like the plastic bridge that supports it had broke in the middle and allowed it to drop down in the pathway of the fan, and there you have it😂.

you were right, it’s the clutch fan not working that has the AC blowing warmer at an idle.
