I have a 1997 F150 with a 4.2L engine. I just bought a camper trailer that weighs 4,500lbs dry. When I pull the trailer(with overdrive turned off) my engine temp begins to rise. I have to regulate the temperature by turning on the heat to draw heat off of the engine. I have had the cooling system and engine flushed and have put Lucas transmission fix int the trans but I continue to have the same problem. I want to be able to pull the trailer without having to regulate with the heater and be able to run the A/C. Do you have any suggestions? Would you recomend a heavy duty transmission? I need some suggestions.
