newbie with a concern
Hello all, I am new here. Just got an 04, 1500, Quad cab, 4.7l with about 54K on it and like it so far. I have a concern though...when driving around town under normal conditions my temp gauge seems normal, always under the middle line.
NOW when I hooked up my boat (around 3500lbs) and tow around the same town, the gauge goes up over the center line...the longer I tow, the higher it goes, BUT it has never gone into the red.
I'm guessing this is not normal...some increase would be, sure, but not as much and as fast as I'm seeing, right? What should I check first? (I'm obviously trying to avoid the stealership if possible.)
