    Make sure you allow the cooling system to "burp" all the air bubbles out. Any air pocket in the cooling system will cause a overheating type situation. Raise the front of the truck up a couple inches, remove the radiatior cap and fill it up and let it run til. Refill as needed. This will also let you see if the fan is kicking on when its supposed to
