Question about 1997 Ford F150 Regular Cab
Restart and it runs fine untill it cools off then process repeats truck does not accualy overheat but gauge shows it does.
Just had a similar issue with my 1995.. started with replacement of the thermostat.. that didn't help. Turns out it's apparently the fan-clutch. Essentially, when there is stress on the engine (driving), the fan actually cuts off and makes it run hot... and my F-150 doesn't like to run hot - starts running rough as well. I'd still start with the thermostat since it's a cheap part and easy to get to.
