Thank you Wrench tech for the timely response. I checked the 2 hoses as you indicated, and it was recognized that one, the outlet of the motor, was indeed as hot as the coolant, but I never was able to get the return hose to rise to the equal temp? I suppose that there's a switch valve that is not working or whenever the hose blew, and was changed before I bought the truck, has possibly clogged the core?(I did have to change the thermostat due to improper reading, and found parts of the old hose fitting logged in the thermostat.) I could find it possible that maybe some of the same metal crumbs could have made it downstream to foul the switch valve?
