I'm not sure if I'm just being paranoid or if I'm really starting to have some issues.

I've noticed lately that my operating temps (oil and tranny) stay around 210 (oil) and 200* (tranny). I know that these are "normal" operating temps and I expect it when it is 90* + outside.

My concern is that over the last few days the temps have been staying around 200* and 210* even when the outside temperatures have been in the 70*s. I'm not driving the truck hard (easy accelerations) and it is unloaded.

My fluid level is at the MAX line. Is this something I should be concerned about?

Also, how can I check if my fan clutch is going bad? It seems that the fan is turning on more and more often.

Thanks for the help.

Its always a good idea to give the 'old fins a spray when washing your truck...
