Motor is a 5.2 v8
So about a month back my water pump went, pissing anti freeze all over the place. I replaced that and it worked fine for about 3 weeks. Then It started running very hot again, so first I tried the thermostat. That didn't do too much. Then this past week I was pulling in to work and it was running about 220 degees, so i parked as soon as possible, and at that point anti freeze was blowing out everywhere again. I replaced the radiator, and its been alright since, but it seems like if I drive for a while, then stop to go do something with the truck idling, the temps start to get high. If i am running and moving, it is fine.
I tried searching but the most I could come up with was to replace a fan relay, and I dont have an electric fan, just the belt fan. The only thing left I could think of was a fan clutch? Is there anything else I should be looking for here? I know a bad head gasket will lead to overheating, but It runs cool and fine when moving, so I think I ruled that out, but not sure. Sorry if Im vague, its late at night and Ive had a long day dealing with it.
