Default Re: $100 or under. What would be a good mod?

The leak was fixed, however its a matter of little space with a crapton of pieces under the hood. With limited space it heats up rather quickly, Its not like Im near overheating or anything, but it should help some while sitting in traffic or something. As for the last remark, only getting two black ones, mounted on my space. Not ricing out, they will work

I really don't understand why it's overheating... Your truck looks all stock under the hood.. it's not very old...

It shouldn't be overheating unless there is a problem.. are you citing design flaws as the reason? That doesn't make any sense.

maybe your clutch is bad on the fan...? I put a flex fan on my ranger, basically just elminates the clutch action, it cools faster than the motor can keep the thermostat open.

Its not overheating, please reread the post.

Its not stock under the hood entirely, but it isnt the point.

It runs warmer than Id like, the temp on the gauge isnt saying otherwise of being fine.

my buddys S10 have this same problem, and a cowl induction hood helped his problem. So being proactive is a bad thing?

Ha, a smartass?

Its cool, Im guessing youre looking at an old picture somewheres. Either way, theirs an aftermarket radiator, an air intake that cleaned up engine bay room.

Not the worlds best mods, but not stock either, and in this case they are done to help cooling and in no way justify your internet badass syndrome.

Also clutch fan seems to be turning just fine

Well with all your aftermarket rads and whatnot and your truck is still running hot.. I'd still say there's something wrong with it (besides that ridiculous paint job and interior crap)

So maybe get your cooling system flushed, or a new thermostat or a flat black spraybomb.

Good luck

The irony...

Either way the troll has no truck for me to rag on, so I couldnt have. I could hit him up because of his wedding picture, but thats his wife man, I dont even think I could stoop so low as to say anything.

In due time, Crayola should be pimp smacked for ever coming up with such a color name to begin with.

Save it for when you need to buy some sort of specialty tool, or when one fails. My floor jack just crapped on me over the weekend, would have been nice to have stashed cash to pay for a new one!
