Been searching a little and thought I'd ask for some insight from the forum members
98 5.2 v8 bone stock except the lift.
Temp gauge usually sits @ 210 all day, but the past couple weeks have been hell.
Almost reached the red area on the gauge and when I parked it, The upper radiator hose blew off the radiator from the heat/pressure. I replaced the thermostat and gasket assuming it may have been the culprit. Nothing changed. I took the thermostat out and drilled a small bleeder hole as I read on another thread. nothing changed.upper hose blew off again. The water pump seems to be fine and is not making any noise or leaking. Just wondering if you guys thought it's be wise to replace the radiator?
I haven't torn into it to check and see if it is possibly the original unit.
Anything else I should check? I know I will have to snag some t-bolt hose clamps to ditch the oem clamps. coolant level is fine and fluid is new since the last incident.
Any tips or thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
thanks in advance!
