  • How many miles and year of truck is good question.
    Either way, make sure next stat has a piddle valve in it.

  • I'll second the Blue Devil product. It's expensive, but worth the risk. Just follow the directions to the letter. I had to use it about 5000 miles ago and things are still going great. My other choice was a rebuild or a new engine, neither of which is in the budget. 250,000 miles on the truck, so anything is worth a try.

    Good stuff so far
