I would and if it does not budge save the old one for another day. It is also very likely the viscous fan. I'd do both together if there is any play in fan movement.

Fan I did last week.

Horsey

No one has given a clear answer. Chris thinks its the gasket. Ron and Jeff don't not does my shop or a dealer tech who stoped at theshop. Other than t stat it isn't clear what is wrong.

Stick to what you do best. Go tell the guy selling the black truck how nice it is.

Yeah will see this weekend. The shop is going to take it to the hill I run hot on. I assume they will bring their temp gun etc.

Dunno if you checked this, but if the weep hole on the tstat is not at 12 oclock, or if there is no weep hole, it will let the temp creep up in certain conditions, won't let the air out of the block.

I went through a couple of fan clutches before I found one out of the box that worked properly.

Stock temp gage= no idea what the temp is, definitely use an IR thermometer, a good one, check at input and output of the radiator, etc, will help you get an idea what's going on. Temp drop from in to out on the rad should at least be 30 degrees, I think?

Actually my original fan clutch worked fine but I replaced it anyway. The shop said they would let me know this weekend what they find.

Should be interesting what they find, my experience is the cooling system in any car is more sensative to the fan and the radiator efficiency that anything else.

So my shop claims that the four core radiator is the issue. The extra core with no aux fan since I don't have ac makes it hard for air to go thru it and when I idle on hills etc it will run warm. They think i should get a stock three core radiator and the problem will be solved.

I would replace it with new genuine and see if it fixes it. Certainly plausible.

Totally agree. The stock cooling system on these trucks is fine if all components are working properly.

I really don't understand why people saw holes in their bonnets and buy these giant NASCAR aluminum radiators.

Well I wasn't trying to do anything fancy. I know people change fan clutches and fans for range rover crap but I wasn't looking to do anything nuts. I just thought when you recore you normally went to a 4 core. I thought the extra core would help not hurt. Spend and learn is my motto.

I typically always buy genuine. It doesn't always mean it is better though. I had three steering lines leak recently that were all genuine. I finally gave up and had a hydraulic shop replace the rubber line on the metal pipe. No leaks since.
