Ok guys I just bought a 95 RCSB K1500 Z71 with 65K on it and on the drive home I noticed a couple of issues.
About 40 mins of driving in I got a SES light so I pulled over just to check things out because its a new vehicle to me.
The temp gauge in the truck doesnt work so I brought along an IR thermometer. The main thing Im worried about is that the engine is running hot. So I measured the temperature on the block and got about 180F and the temp on the exhaust manifold was 700F after a couple of minutes it dropped down to 400F-500F. Is this too hot? If someone has any idea of what the temps are supposed to be on the outside of the block or the manifold please share any thoughts or ideas.
Oil pressure looks good and coolant level looks good.
Thanks and pics will be up later :crazy:
