Ok, I have 5 core radiator. Truck would not cool yesterday. Temp was 100 outside. Ran fan all day. No a/c on. Truck would be 180 turn to get on ramp. Slight uphill and be top was over 210 with fan on the whole time. Check thermostat with heat gun opened at 180. Got engine to 205 and took little line off top of radiator to see if propeller was slipping, rev up engine line shoots water 2 to 3 feet. Should it shoot more? When at 205 every thing is 205, radiator top and bottom, thermostat housing, water pump all 205. Radiator is about 3 years old. Engine has about 50,000 on it. Wieghed about 79000 yesterday. Even in the evening when temp was 80 degrees with fan already on at stop light temp was 190 and I left stop light within one block temp was over 210 and rising. Back out of it and it took about 3 miles to cool. At 40 mph. Climbing hills I climb regularly at 35 to 40. I had to back out of it to 10 mph to keep it under 225. Can you helpWhere my shop is I don't have service. So I am sitting down the road where I have some service. Little redneck I know. Thanks

On hot days around 100 it’s normal to see the temps get up under heavy load.
Sounds like the thermostats and water pump are working. If anything the radiator is partially clogged either inside or outside.

Is there anything else like low fuel pressure. Or engine timing or that could cause that much heat. People keep telling me things. So I decided to ask a professional
Technician: Cat Man, Cat Engine Expert replied 3 years ago
No. Low fuel pressure or timing can’t cause this.
