Q: Truck overheats

Hello. You did not specify the mileage of your vehicle but if the thermostat is not changed around every 60,000 miles it may cause overheating. Thermostat replacement is considered routined maintenance just like brakes or oil changes. I would recommend replacing the thermostat because it is the most encountered cause for overheating. Though before replacing the thermostat I would strongly recommend having the cooling system pressure tested to help expose any other faults or any leaks that will cause overheating. Well trained technicians will pressure test a coolant system before replacing any parts to ensure your overheating issue is accurately pinpointed and resolved.
