Have you guys done a radiator flush or anything while you've been parked there? You can't take off and deal with that on the road.

Not yet. Likely tomorrow, maybe Saturday. Husband and FIL are dealing with that; Im just the photographer and pompom fringe lady I'M KIDDING. Theyre talking to some diesel mechanic friends tomorrow to come up with a plan.

They could do a radiator flush themselves for maybe $25. Point is it's not that expensive and what comes out tells you a lot about what condition the radiator is in. They've probably got a plan and it's likely more accurate than my guesses.

Haha, you said pom pom fringe, haha!!!!!

It's looking good! Hope your radiator issue is an easy inexpensive fix. I had mine rebuilt to the tune of $900.
