i will opt out..mabe another one of the guys has an idea
my 2000 1500 silverado keeps overheating after replacing, thermostat,and fan clutch,and cleaned out radiator. I've olso replaced Engine gaskets.Truck only overheats when the truck is on netrual or at a stop, once I get going the tempeture goes back down. Other mechanics say the water pump is good because it's not leaking and there's a flow in the water resevore. Radiator cap is new. One more thing when the truck is overheating the airconditioner stops blowing cool air. This is going on when the tempeture on the truck is rising or starting to overheat.
Before there was any work done to it at all and the truck over heated it lost the water thru the water resevore tank or hose.
