I just got the truck from my Dad, and he was having a problem recently of which when the truck ran over like 65 MPH, the engine would slowly overheat but the backup electric fan would come on. When this was the case, I would just have to pull over and even with the truck idling it would cool down. Now, we replaced the fan clutch and the truck was running better for 2-3 weeks until now. Now, when I am in park or sitting still with truck running, it begins to heat up. It is idling at 500-600 RPM's. I have pressed gas when in park as lightly as I can and the engine starts to cool down. I also want to point out that the thermostat was taken out but I have it and a new one to put in. Also, that I have not been brave enough to wait until the electric fan kicks on. It works when I have the AC on but I think it is supposed to come on when I am idling. Sorry that I do not have a specific question, but I hope you can help! PLEASE!
