Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 2500
OK so i wanted to get my truck muddy and try out the 4 wheel drive so i took it to the mounds and ran it 3 times in a small amount of water and mud it wasn't vary deep i didn't want to do anything to big as the truck is new and i am afraid to mess it up well on the way home the engine and trans overheated and are running hot so i washed it 4 times and made sure the rad was clean and the fans are working after i washed it it didn't overheat as fast but still overheats the truck has 4,000 miles on it i looked for leeks but there is none all the fluids are fine i checked to see if there was mud caked on anything and i knocked a chunk of mud out under the oil pan and it still runs hot i don't know what else to do if anyone can help i would appreciate it vary much
I would change the thermostat and radiator cap. The T-stat is what controls the engine temperature and is is probably stuck shut. This part is man made and will fail sooner or later. The rad cap is cheep and should be replaced when a T-stat is changed.
