Engine Cooling problem
2005 Dodge Ram V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 115000 miles
My truck runs a little hot when on the interstate or under a load in town. I can get the temp back down to normal by stopping and idling or by slowing down in the interstae to about 55. As soon as climb back up around 70 it starts to heat up again. All the coolant levels are good and the fans are running when I am idling. I did have a time this past winter that the thermostat stuck on me and the truck tried to run hot but I caught it before it got to hot. I did not change that thermostat but it did not stick again. It is puzzling how idling cools it rather than make the problem worse? Any suggestion would be great. Thanks
have the same problem?
