Hey all. These may be dumb questions but here goes.
When I run my truck without the radiator cap on coolant starts to pour out of it. Is this normal?
Also when I let it cool down and take the cap off my resorvoir bubbles like crazy for a second and fills up more.
I've been having issues with temp gauge fluctuating and will be changing the t-stat soon. Only really occurs when the heat is on. Only a minor fluctuation with the heat off. Will that have anything to do with it? My fluid level stays constant except when i take the cap off and I have to tranfer some fluid from the resorvoir back into the radiator.
Truck does not overheat but fluctuates between a little below a quarter of the gauge up to right before half. Temp sensor was repalced 6 months ago, t-stat, aftermarket cap and a flush about a year ago. Radiator doesn't seem to suck the coolant back in from the reservoir like it should. Bad Cap or bad seal between radiator and reservoir?
