THE "300" IS A TOUGH ENGINE

I DON'T KNOW WHAT EXTREMES YOURS MAY HAVE GONE THRU

WE DO HAVE THE POSSIBILITY OF A HEAD GASKET ISSUE.....SORTA THE WORST CASE SCENARIO

LET'S PUT THAT OFF TO THE SIDE AND LOOK AT SOME OTHER POSSIBILITIES

1) HOW DO WE KNOW THE WATER PUMP IS FINE?

I JUST LOOKED AT 3 AT ONLINE PARTS STORES....THOSE LOOKED LIKE THEY HAD METAL IMPELLERS.....OTHER BRANDS????........I DON'T KNOW!

GOT 2 MORE TO LOOK AT

2) EVER PUT ON A NEW RADIATOR CAP.......JUST CAUSE THE OTHER ONE IS OLD?.......I RECOMMEND THE "LEVER" TYPE

3) HOW ABOUT MR. FAN CLUTCH?

IS IT WORKING PROPERLY?....."YOU TUBE" SHOWS SEVERAL WAYS TO CHECK IT OUT..........I DO NOT RECOMMEND THE "HANG ONTO IT WITH YOUR HAND AND CRANK UP" OR THE "STICK A RAG OR ROLLED UP NEWSPAPER IN IT"............JUST NOT SAFE!

THE WAY I CAN TELL IS, THE BIG TIME EXCESSIVE SPINNING AFTER YOU SHUT IT OFF

.........OR WHILE IT IS AT OPERATING TEMP AND RUNNING, IF YOU WILL STAND THERE AND LISTEN, YOU WILL HEAR IT "ROAR", THEN STOP ROARING, THEN ROAR AGAIN...AND AGAIN...AND AGAIN.........THIS IS A CORRECTLY WORKING FAN CLUTCH!

4) YOUR RADIATOR IS MAYBE "MOSTLY" STOPPED UP.......LOOK IN THE FILL HOLE....DOES IT LOOK LIKE LITTLE BARNACLES GROWING AROUND THE VANES?......THAT "STUFF" IS INSIDE THE VANES TOO!

OPTIONS.....

USE A AUTO PARTS STORE FLUSH........USUALLY NOT REAL GOOD RESULTS

HAVE IT PROFESSIONALLY CLEANED........HOW MUCH? (AT LEAST $50).....THE RADIATOR WILL STILL BE THE SAME AGE......WILL IT BE PERFECT?.........WEIGH ALL OF THAT, AGAINST THIS.

I'M SHOWING YOU A "2 ROW" (EXACT FIT) FROM ADVANCE AUTO PARTS........A "1 ROW" IS $13 CHEAPER......BUT WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD SACRIFICE ANOTHER ROW OF COOLING FOR A MEASLY $13 BUCKS????

NOW........AS YOU CAN SEE, I REALLY SLING OUT AN ANSWER, AND ATTEMPT TO HELP ALL I CAN!!!

I WANNA KNOW IF ADVANCE AUTO PARTS IS A LOCAL STORE FOR YOU????????? IT IS FOR ME!

NO MATTER IF YOU NEED A FAN CLUTCH......A RADIATOR.......OR ANY OTHER HARD PARTS (BUT NOT OILS)..........I CAN SHOW YOU HOW TO SAVE $10 TO $40...........READ MY LINK BELOW (THE CONCEPT MAY WORK AT OTHER STORES) .........JUST REMEMBER THE "MAXIMIZE TECHNIQUE"......AND "A124" STILL WORKED TODAY FOR MY BUDDY!

THE ONLY OTHER "GOOD ADVICE" I CAN GIVE IS.......ABANDON THE TRUCK, GET A JEEP CJ!

...................ALL RIGHTY THEN..........LET'S HEAR SOME NEWS?

WAS MY ANSWER WORTH A SACKFUL OF "KRYSTAL BURGERS"? (IF THAT STUMPS YOU, LOOK IT UP ON "YOU TUBE")

...........I DO GET CARRIED AWAY, DON'T I?
