Not really it started getting warm quicker than was normal and ran a bit warmer ( half not lower 3rd) but not over heatingUnusual. History of coolant problems?
Cheap 300's aren't hard to find though
It also lost some coolant - but it stayed between full and empty and only lost it until it reached a level at which point it would stay there for months - I attributed that to a suspected radiator issue (full of crap**) - had it kept pushing out water I would have been looking at other things.
It would appear its been limping along with this crack for a year or 2 and a hard days off roading and difficult recovery of a bogged in UMM fatally weakened the head gasket.
Which 2 weeks later when I next moved the truck let go in the spectacular - WW2 Destroyer laying smoke screen style.
**Fash fash gets every where - then theres sinking it in bogs -flooded rivers - I would be surprised if half my radiator isn't solid with shit
