cycle the ignition off while coasting and let it drop to cold before letting the truck bump start. Stays at operating temp. Cool. Look down again and pegged
it may be a bad sensor, but I'm not taking any chances. Anybody near hampden and Sante fe have a good scan tool with data lists? I think I wanna check my actual temps before concluding on a sensor.
With the cool weather I'd guess a bad sensor as well but a new thermostat & radiator flush isn't going to hurt.... I'm assuming your radiator is topped off, could be a ruptured hose.
