    The fan works with no problems. It blows both hot and cold air. Possibly a thermostat sensor?

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Appreciate the direct "Ask me".

To your overheating concern, a few ides you could consider/explore:

  • radiator fan/fan motor. Some models uses a silica oil clutch while others require that the A/C or heater be turned on otherwise the radiator fan will not engage;
  • clogged radiator;
  • too little antifreeze, too much water in the coolant mix;
  • too soft radiator hoses;
  • the thermostat was installed in reverse or out of position.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Pls be informed that due to my current rank and rating, even a Helpful would be detrimental to my status. Should this solution not address your concern, it would be appreciated if you could just not rate it at all. Cheers.

Put bigger tires on my 2005 chevrolet 2500HD silverado, and now a small temperature gauge says it's overheating,


That will happen. You need to change your thermostat out with a little bit higher range, this happens cause your vehicle is working harder to push the bigger tires

2000 chevy 1500 silverado- rear brakes overheating


Have someone push & release pedal while at wheel with problem. See if it takes a while or slow to release. If yes, have wrench ready on bleeder screw, and try again, if it sticks/holds, crack bleeder screw, if it releases, I'd replace hose.
