What Joe says about leaving the level low, don't know if it has a plastic expansion tank that you can see how much is in it, on a cold engine leave it low as you can in the expansion tank and see what happens.    terry:MackLogo:

235-240 is where the engine oil should be as per the oil thermostat.  215-220 is past fan on temps.   Is the fan coming on?   This thing runs 220 on the water temp running down flat roads?    I have a feeling the pressurizing coolant and high temps are not related though high coolant temp will magnify a pressurizing problem.
