|run 100% water and report back
Reading back through your posts it sounds like this issue started after you installed the "fail safe" thermostat?
If before the install it was cooling fine, and after it started running hotter....then logic says its likely the thermostat or thermostat housing/install
I trust Stant Super Stats and when there is a question I boil them and test them before install
Boil thermostat in water with a thermometer. At what temp does it begin to open? At what temp is it fully open? It should be fully open by 195 degrees
I skipped past the bluetooth dongle thing and attach my Android tablet to the truck with an OBDII cable, no bluetooth to mess with just a direct connection.
Ebay has a 2 core all aluminum radiator (no plastic side tanks) for less then $200............
