brazosdog02 Here is my temperature log from today. About a 3 hour trip, flat road, 95 degree ambient on average, unloaded. Look at the temperature swings. What do you make of this? Also, note the time spent near the end of the trip in the 170's.


Same Chart with Additional Sensors

TOWING 6,000 Travel Trailer, 95-100 degrees ambient, mostly flat terrain.


Same Chart with Additional Sensors

The last portion of the "Towing" must have been when I was idling. Still, not a temperature I expect. Also, not sure about the "0" in there, but its only one, so It's probably a glitch in Torque or something.

All sensors seem to track with coolant temps. Don't worry about the EOT Delta, its BPD Oil Cooler.

barongan Tagged, this seems like a very interesting thread

brazosdog02 Just thought I would post that I was trying to get the serial number of the radiator and I cannot see it. The sides of the radiator, which used to be perfectly vertical are BOWED out about 1” on each side. Not even sure if I can get it back out.

Dude. What in the holy crap? I don't know how you build that much pressure and don't pop a cap or explode a degas bottle, but this must be why the lower hose blew. There must be some sort of crap in the radiator or slag or something that allowed it to build, balloon the radiator and not explode it.

Hartwig To find the issue, I'd drive without a thermostat.

Maybe that's an alternative. My stock radiator is now 13 years old. It is still ok, but I have a camper vehicle for long journeys and would get very difficult spare parts abroad, I exchange it as a precaution.

brazosdog02 I have never run without a thermostat and for the cost of a new one, I'm not willing to test it out. I think I can save a lot of trouble here by getting a new thermostat and putting a brand new OEM radiator in. The OEM tstat is less than 1 year old. There are a few things on this truck that OEM is not quite as good as aftermarket, but the majority of it, the Ford Engineers got right. My extensive reading here and elsewhere has lead me to see that the OEM radiator is superior to any aftermarket in pretty much every single category except for the end tanks, and mine didn't leak for 150,000 miles. Mishi is refunding my money anyway and its just not worth the risk to test out the Chinese built "Performance Radiator". I contacted them a week ago, and they have not responded at all so that tells me that I won't be getting any support from them if it doesn't work. Plus, there is no guarantee it will even arrive in decent condition and I am not paying BPD twice the price for them to put it in a fancy box.

Hydro Without a thermostat, the coolant does not follow the intended path thru the block and heads -- the thermostat not only controls temperature, it also controls coolant flow path

Thermostats are never really fully open or closed(except when cold), mostly they are somewhere between
