1996 6.5L Radiator Gets Too Hot When I Idle

Volume 2 Issue 3 - 6.2/6.5 Issues and Answers

I’ve got a cooling issue with my '96 6.5. I have cleaned the radiator and other coolers and even put on a new fan clutch but when pulling a load especially at low speeds the engine will run at 210 or just over. If I let it set and idle or high idle with the A/C on it will run up to 220 and you have to drive down the road to cool it off. Never had it flushed and it still has the single stat setup. I do have the dual stat setup but after reading the last issue am not sure which is the best route to go.
