Given the creative repair methods implemented by the PO, I would change the coolant and put in ELC. Heaven knows how he topped off the cooling system - presumably with the rest of whatever was in his...

I violently stabbed the brakes to avoid a deer the other day (truck was unloaded) and the pedal basically felt rock hard and the truck did not measurably slow down. I backed off on the pedal a bit...

The high mounted stoplight has a chintzy gasket that turns rock hard, and leaks. I read that the gasket is only sold with the light assembly. Check yours. I think this contributes to rusted out cab...
