Think I should replace the thermostat?
They have 192 or 160. In Maui, so it never gets below about 60F (burrrr)
Anyways, I thought it might be worth a shot????
Thanks...

So, it's seeming like this happens when the thermostat opens (or tries to open). Anyways, Im going to start with that today. It's been frustrating. Any advice appreciated. Thanks

The new radiator is in. I had to get adapters for the oil lines from trailhead. The new adapters make the lines stick straight out instead of on an angle. It is a nicer set up because the lines don't rub the steering lines. Anyway I have been driving the truck all day and it is running well. I did my hill test three times and the temp gauge never even got to the middle. The radiator itself feels cooler too. I am going to test this weekend when it is really hot out to be sure.

I took the recored radiator back to the shop that did it and they said that mess was from a leak. It is being fixed now. I am going to sell it if anyone is interested.

Does anyone know where I can get the stickers that were on the old radiator?
Genuine Antifreeze only
Caution hot
etc

Sounds like your problem should be solved. Glad it wasn't the head gasket. Did the shop who did the radiator say where the leak was coming from?

The shop thinks it was one of the core welds. He is going to pull it apart and see.

No clue. It's green if that tells you anything.

Check to make sure it's geared for aluminum blocks.

Ha!! I just want all the stickers that come from the factory. It makes my resale value higher.

Thanks. You found a better set than me. I had the following:

fan warning mwc1691
owners manual muc5307
asbestos btr389
antifreeze btr328

Anyway as a follow up it was 90 here today. I drove the same hill I had issues on and the temp gauge was always below middle. After letting it idle for more than ten minutes it only went dead center.

Very happy with my new genuine radiator.

Thanks everyone for the help.

Are you looking at a RRC for you? Or has someone requested your services again? Just a little pre excited if youre considering a personal purchase...
