    The more water, the lower your engine temp. If you have straight antifreeze in there, you need to get that out asap. I would never go over a 70% antifreeze, 30% water. It's hard on your radiator and not necessary.

    I highly doubt it's that high. I only added maybe a pint or two. But I'll get one of those gauges and find out for sure.

    I was thinking the same thing, I told my friend that, he said wanna try vinyl, I'm going to start carrying it. So he gave me a small piece of that stuff to try out, and some yellow for some lights

    Scratches, dents, and junkyard parts.
    General cleanup today... including washing the engine by with some engine bay degreaser and a water hose with very low pressure.

    Then, got in the truck to make an errand, drove fine for a couple hundred feet and all of a sudden died on me. Tried to turn it back on and absolutely nothing happened when I turned on the key. The lights won't turn on at all, the electric door locks don't work, nothing electrical. Even thought they were tight I disconnected the battery lines, cleaned the terminals, and re-connected. Still nothing. All fuses looked good and nothing is disconnected as far as I can tell, and the battery is pulling more than 13 volts. I'm stumped! Is there some sort of main switch in the cab that shuts of power??? Did I ruin something when I cleaned the engine bay?

    since I have an automatic, I had to disconnect the shifting linkage and shift the tranny into neutral at the transmission since the shifter is stuck in park, to push it back home.

    Figured i'd post in here, first, to see if anyone had suggestions before I start a thread. :notsure:

    I freely admit I'm a total dumbass... but did you cover the alternator when you hosed down your engine and, if not, would that have the affect you're experiencing?

    He said fuses where fine.

    But would make sense.

    I finally get a glimpse into your garage.

    Like the carrier. Are you going to install it in the bed or affix it to your bumper?
