It certainly sounds like you have a cooling issue. To check your fan clutch, spin the fan with the engine cold. Then let the engine reach operating temperature, shut it off, and spin the fan again. It should feel much tighter than before. If not, replace the fan clutch. With the age of your truck, its probably a good idea to replace it anyways to prevent future issues. If you are not comfortable doing the repair, a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic.com, will be able to complete the repair for you.
