Going crazy on cooling issue Sign In

Have a 92 Chev K1500 with 5.7, overheating issues, replaced radiator, thermostat (2). Runs around 100 degrees without a thermostat but when i install one it pegs out. Heater lines are open and working fine. Any idea what to look at now?

No offence but is the thermostat being installed correctly? The portion of the stat with the spring, should be installed into the intake’s water galley not facing the stat housing. Like I said no offence meant but I’ve seen good tech’s make this mistake, just out of being careless.

Thanks Dan D, looks like it is the water pump, taking old one off tonight to check if defective.
