overheating issues -.-
ok i have done all i can do to fix my overheating issue, let me start by sayin it only overheats when i run the a/c for about 10 mins (besides my a/c normally getting warmer by then) my temp gauge climbs from the half mark to about 3/4 the way down, i turn off the a/c and the temp will slowly return to normal. i also towed a trailer about 40 miles and if i went to pass someone it would also climb to 3/4 mark (without runnin the a/c) and would let the truck settle into gear and turn on the heater, which would again slowly return the temp to normal...
within the past month i have done trial and error and nothings worked, from replacing the thermostat (even went to a 180 from a 195 thinking that would help), hoses, fan clutch, flushes, changed coolant measurements, addictives, and still cant figure out why this keeps happening, now recently a friend told me that there are different radiators the rangers use with a thicker fins, i bought this one about 8 months ago after my last one took a crap, i would say i have been havin the issues since summer has arrived abd didnt know there would be a difference, can someone confirm this for me? also maybe might have the same issue that i am or can think of something else
