Recently my truck has been having some problems, a wile ago when i was wheeling with a friend my truck was idling and it stalled and wouldn't start untell it cooled but its now getting worse. I can drive it for only 10 mins now and if i stop it will stall and i have to wait untell it completely cools be four it will start. My temp gage is showing the engine is cool, i know my rad is shit and i need a new one but i think some thing else might be wrong. I did a coolant flush on it that didn't help.:mad:

re-chrome your muffler bearings. try that first, if that doesn't work i'd replace them. you can get a decent set from a wrecker, just make sure the harding hasn't worn off.

ok i just took the cat off, i think i have 2 cats on my truck. the one i took off looked pretty shitty inside, i took it for a drive and it seems ok its not stalling now, but it is still getting hot, time for a new rad.

well to clean them out or "unclog" them, take a piece of readi-bar or a solid rod of steel of some sort, insert in cat, find the clog by feel, smack other end with hammer untill all anger and frustration is eluded.

muffler bearings are at either end of the cat, or cats in your case. just spin them to see if they still have full rotation, they might be starting to sieze. if they are lordco has them for under 35 bucks

raise your truck to a 5001+ GVW, remove the cats and be done with those stupid annoyances.

there are probaly restrictions in the exhaust system remove them check your thermostat for proper function and then go from there your rad is fine even if it is pluged with mud...
clean it ..
most likely your thermostat is stuck d=shut or partially shut combined with a poor flowing rad it will quickly over heat any system
