TRUCK DYING, RADIATOR

Asked by Feb 02, 2015 at 07:11 AM about the 1997 Ford F-150 XLT Extended Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We replaced the radiator because of a leak.
The truck wasn't overheating, and isn't now.
It dies whenever we slow down or idle. Its it
almost died, then the engine revved back up
on its own. The only other symptom is a
gurgling noise when driving, which sounds
like it's near the air conditioning vents. So
bummed out. Please help!!

The gurgling noise is either air that needs to be bleed out of the cooling system or a partially clogged heater core. But that has nothing to do with stalling. Is your check engine light on? You should get it read
