I'm actually quite surprised you haven't gone Michael Douglas Falling Down yet. But...I did hear you recently got the vanity plate "D-Fens" which folks think is a Land Rover reference...but...

Stay on topic. There are enough horsey and Jeff's on this board already. I want this fixed.

My fault...I thought that's what your MECHANIC was for.

My solution: move back east where you belong, and where we know how to fix shit! This could easily be solved with a wrenching party, but you LA guys are too concerned with when the new fall styles will arrive at Nordstroms.

I will say when we had a wrenching party and did my clutch I at least knew it was done right.

Coming back to topic, that's the beauty of doing it yourself...half the reason I work on my own stuff is to know it's done, and done right. Now, in some cases it may take twice (or three times) as long...or in worst case scenario you may even have to re-do the work...but it's still cheaper than any dealer, and 9 times out of 10 probably done to better spec rather than just "rushing a job out the door" as many shops do (not all shops however, there are plenty of good ones out there).

For the record, a "laser thermometer" doesn't use a laser to measure temperature. The laser is just an aiming reference. The thermometer is actually just a cheap infrared sensor.

I wasn't lumping you in with LA...pretty sure they don't sell half-shirts at Nordstrom.

I really trust the guy with my truck. I just hate that this issue only happens now idling on one street. At least it doesn't run hot climbing or in traffic. Half the issue is solved.

Water pump about 1.5 years old. Fan no clue but no cracks.

Also to answer Ron's question
No hydrocarbons, no loss of pressure, no oil in coolant, no loss of coolant, no bubbles in coolant, and to reiterate
Rad recored 6000 miles ago - 4 core
All new hoses 6000 miles ago
Water pump - 10000 miles ago.
New t stat - now
New fan clutch - now

What you need is my ECUmate or the rover gauge to measure the coolant temp sensor directly. This will tell you if it's actually heating up or it's just and electric / gauge issue

Took marks truck on the same hill. Truck runs exactly the same (below middle on gauge). At the top of the hill though when I idle it goes to middle and stops even when I let it idle for 20 minutes. Wonder if I should just replace water pump again.
