Did the lift pump test, it failed, replaced lift pump, restarted engine, redid test, fail again, tried 3 lift pump, fail again. I have 12 volts going to the lift pump. Each time the engine stalls right around 30 secs. I can not see 2 new lifts pumps from seperate places being bad. On another issue, my temp guage is going up tp 250, then comes back down to about 180. Only does this on the first 5 mninutes of driving, no boil over and can not see any leak, no anti-freeze in oil. Any ideas, suggestions, 6.5 TD dance that I have not done yet.
I have learned a lot of info from this site, thanks in advance.
