Ok, replaced thermostat, and regained a little heat in the truck, but it began to over heat again, just not as fast, I got into the engine compartment, and noticed all the hoses seemed to be pressurized, I gave them all a little sqeeze, and when I got to this piping on the passenger side of the engine, a small hose leading up to the intake, broke off from the piping and hot fluid sprayed everywhere, including my face, luckily it wasnt bad, and I just got a few burns, nothing too serious. So now I am even more stumped. And I dont know what that pipe is? The lower hose connects to it, and then it connects to the heater core hoses, and goes to several small hoses. SO now that needs replaced as well as whatever else in wrong.
