My alternator went out on a 150ile trip managed to get to location I was headed. Replaced alternator and jumped started pick up to charge battery. started home that afternoon and got about 20 miles from town and truck got hot I slowed down to 55 and truck would cool down to about 240 degrees. If I got over 55 or had to stop at stop light for any length of time it would go to red line. I had replaced thermostat a couple of weeks before that, since I have replaced water pump
, fan clutch, flushed the motor 2 times. Still have the same problem I get over 2,000 rpm's it will red line on the guage and message center comes on to check coolant temp. Both me and my mechanic cannot find where the problem in. can you help me with a suggestion of what to look at.
