1st roadtrip, now some ?s
Just got back from a 1,060 mile round tripper. Mileage was 14.79, 14.39, and 16.35 at 65-70mph with no chip and 4.10 gears. Temp was dead center on the gauge but has always ran like that since I replaced the t-stat, o-ring and neck. Checked the oil when I got home (still hot) and was between at least 1/2 to 1qt lower than the add mark and since I see no leaks I assume it's being burnt due to injectors(?), going to re-check when cooled off (no visiable smoke so I'm lost there). Truck ran great but do need some ideas on some issues. Do these trucks have a low fuel light? The piece of the radiator that the overflow tank hose connects to broke off and I just wedged a barbed splice in thats too small for the hose but worked ok aside from some spray at higher speeds - any way this can be fixed or do I just need a diffrent radiator? (I don't have the piece that broke off) The only other issue was hitting a deer about 7 miles from home causing me to have to pull my bumper out of my tire.
