When my truck is on idle it’s usually ok.but When I begin to drive and floor it after a couple minutes of driving My truck temp. Gauge goes up to RED
and I get a “CHECK GAUGES” on my dashboard.
* I already got my thermostat and engine coolant sensor replaced. I got OEM parts. And I still have the same issue.

Would like to add that the fans are working
I don’t have any coolant leaks
And I also changed my radiator cap

Anybody had this issue? And fixed

As stated burped the system? Also run the vehicle without the thermostat. Shouldn't overheat without the thermostat. If it still over heats I'd be wondering if the water pump propeller is still intact. Or if there is a blockage somewhere

My issue turned out to be my AC compressor going out. Unfortunately I had already replaced fan, put in the Karma racing radiator, water pump and thermostat. Never knew a AC compressor could cause that.
