Engine Cooling problem
1985 Nissan Truck 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 140000 miles
I have a 1985 Nissan 720 pickup truck. Mileage 140000. My truck will sit and idle all day and the temp gauge will stay in the normal range, but as soon as I put it in gear and put a load on the engine the gauge starts to climb immediately. I have already replaced the thermostat, and water pump. I did a reverse flush on the radiator while I had it out. I poured water throught the upper and lower hoses while they were conected to the engine and there are no clogs there. No oil in the water, or vice versa. I'm out of ideas. There are no leaks, and its not losing any antifreeze. Could it be a clogged water jacket in the block?
have the same problem?
