Some Maintenance I have done to my truck today.

Recommended Posts

My wife took the truck out on Friday and the Coolant temp went high to 260 degrees within several miles from the house. She turned around and went home immediately. I found that the radiator was leaking on the driver's side at the top where the metal and plastic meet. I guess it is time for a new radiator. After tearing it apart I am also going to replace the thermostat, lower radiator to thermostat housing hose, radiator, and also the radiator cap. I have already flushed, cleaned and prepped everything and am waiting on my parts to arrive. Ordered GM Genuine Parts from Rock Auto and they will be here Wednesday. I hope to get the installed Thursday after work because I have inventory this weekend at work.

I forgot to take pictures yesterday, but I got everything from Rock Auto on Wednesday and got it all installed on Thursday. Truck is up and running now with no issues. Driving it to work today to check it out on the road. Maybe I will post some pictures at a later date.

For my next project, I am going to replace my original equipment bushings. I ordered a master set of Energy Suspension Polyurethane. I also got a tub of silicone grease for them. Also, I purchased a Haynes repair manual for my truck for torque values for this project.

You might just use charm.li (website) for the torque values and any other repair procedures you need for the truck.  It's the full-service manual for the truck, and is much more complete than the haynes pamphlet.
