Well it's going to overheat if it's puking out 90% of the coolant.

That's what I'm saying, why is it overflowing to the point if near empty, I just did a compression test and absolutely perfect all around and plugs looked great

Have you checked your t stat? I wonder if your gauge/sensor is not reading accurately, which is why you are not seeing the overheat.

I agree though, most likely a bad head gasket. I also agree, too many problems for a truck with little value, sell it, part it, or trade it in.

Horrible chirping/vibration

Postby Skylardog123 [OP] » Sep 11 2019, 2:57am

Alright fixed all the issues on my truck finally except for one major issue, so the past like 3 days, when I take off, I hear this loud and fast clicking/chirping noise, and also at any speed, the driveline vibrates, the chirping sounds like it's near the transfer case, but I'm assuming it also has to do with the horrible vibration, and also every now and then the trans has been having trouble shifting gears, it will shift like normal always, but once in a blue moon it will take a minute to shift

I think I might have a similar problem. Everytime I engage the hyperdrive, I get a very harsh vibration. I think nitrogen from my fuel cells is leaking into the afterburners and making the thrusters oscillate. could that be it?

Dude,, i got it! Between the overflowing radiator and this chirping. I am almost certain its the right side freeze plugs are loose!
The vibration of them causes the drive line chatter and then when you shut it off The block cools slower than the brass plugs. Well after years of vibration and the miles you have on you truck and the Rap music. The freeze plugs work loose!!
Got to borrow a three foot Brass drift and smack them back into the block,I mean hit them man,, not like a Sally girl!
Whack them like you have a set!

If that doesn't fix it,,,,Your block is cracked!
You are a TROLL,, Admins need to shut you down!
