Question about 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
I have changed the thermostat and the water pump. I checked to see if the radiator is plugged. It isn't . I've also took out the frost plug to see if corrosion was causing the antifreeze not to circulate. There was no clog.
It is almost like the truck gets airlocked and the antifreeze doesn't circulate through the engine. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Have your antifreeze mix tested to make sure it is strong (a cheap tester can be bought at any parts store) if it is ok than run the truck with the radiator cap off and see if the antifreeze cairculates when the it gets hot (this says the thermostat is opening ok). If that is ok than you might have the system pressure tested to find a leak or maybe the radiator cap is bad. Good luck
