    04 TB temperature needle drifts to the right when going up a hill

    I have been driving the car since I changed the radiator and fan with OEM and it definitely is a lot better. First of all the P0422 is gone after 7 years of trying everything but the inlet valve which was leaking. so I towed a dual jetski trailer up to Castaic so up and down some hills and it...

    Yeah I just spoke to the above mentioned friend and the 5.3 Avalanche and he said he saw his gauge go up passed 3/4 going uphill with air on towing a small 18 footer so he immediately turned the air off. He said it happened right after I asked him to look. I guess he didn't really pay...

    So you're saying the climb to 226⁰ is normal in that climate. I have a friend with an 07 Chevy Avalanche and he towed a boat to Laughlin in similar climate as Palm Springs and going uphill he never saw his gauge passed half no AC. He has a different engine at 5 3 so who knows maybe the...

    Watch the AC Delco Fan video to see fan spinning by hand after the car was stopped and heat was at around 119 or 117. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/lujk0a5uf11d7yf/AAD7f9kYq70SFos2DeV0Kz60a?dl=0

    So going it went up but coming back I didn't use AC and temps stayed at 210 and 212. Sometimes at the light it went to 214. But as soon as AC was on it went up to 219.

    04 TB temperature needle drifts to the right when going up a hill

    I bought the ACDelco from Amazon. It can be turned but not spun around freely it is pretty tight compared to the after market one. I bought 2 different fans before and both acted the same. This one is different it is pretty tight bit it doesn't sound loud or anything sounds normal and spună a...

    Isn't 190⁰ a bit low I thought that's what causes the car to run rich or lean forget which.

    04 TB temperature needle drifts to the right when going up a hill

    Today I did the same thing as yesterday but no AC. So on the freeway the temps went from 190.4 at 70mph to 201 at stand still. When I went up the same steep hill the temps went no further than 201. Again short hill. It seems like temp are at least 10 points lower now. At least have to look on...

    04 TB temperature needle drifts to the right when going up a hill

    Oh this AC fan is really tight cannot spin it freely by hand like the other one. The air has nothing to do with it. This is all belt driven and some computer driven. The other fans were cheap ones and the belt did not spin them properly too much free play. It's clear. But I have to drive it on...
