Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your concern today. Please rate my assistance after we have concluded chatting.
Do you think the engine is actually overheating, or the gage just reading high? The Aviator does have some issues with the cylinder head temp sensor. Also what year is your truck?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It's an 04 the Gage went ab
out 3/4 and I turned it off.
I touched thereservoir it wasn't super hot at all but I think it would have gotten hot
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 2 years ago.
Ok Well the cht sensor is in the back of the rh cylinder head. You need to remove the rh fender splash shield and lower the exhaust to gain access to it. Also make sure the cooling fan clutch is working correctly by making sure it speeds up as the engine temp increases.

Y'all suck. I was an air pocket and after getting that takin care of, I ran fine with no over heating. I guess y'all r book smart (mechanics). I'll never use this again that's for Damn sure.

Why do we suck? "Y'all" didn't even get the air out when replacing the coolant. Thats basic.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
If its so basic, why didn't you suggest that from the beginning?
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 2 years ago.
All that matters is your truck is good again. I will send this chat to customer service for a refund of any money you may have paid.
