See my profile, I do not know your rig, but do understand automotive machine technology to a medium extent.

Is your mechanic certified? (Or really knows his stuff)

Did you have your heads tested for warpage?

Were they resurfaced?

Torqued to specs and in sequence?

Respond?

Love, Turddog

Check the cooling lines as they run through the radiator. Change low coolant sensor
