Ticking sound is typical of slack in the valve train. Try using a wood dowell "stethescope" and touch it to the rocker arm cover over each cylinder. If a rocker arm adjustment is too slack, you'll hear a clicking sound rather than a muted murmur. If you find the noisy lifter you will need to remove the rocker arm cover and adjust it. CAUTION NOTE - It is possible that a hydraulic lifter may have some grit in the internal valve. That would stop the lifter from functioning properly.
check the air vent at the top of the engine it may be blocked. and there is another one at the bottom will see it sticking out and go into the top of the engine. a flex rod should clean it out on the bottom one even an old bit of hose pipe pushed down the pipe should clean it out. then do a oil change and filter.
I think you need to clean your radiator(open water tank and remove all dirt inside it and inter in water hols and pipe thin stick), change thermostat to lower degree heat, if the problem continue try to remove thermostat.
I would first check the cooling fans. To do this unplug the fans and use two jumper wires to hook them direct to the battery and test. If the fans are working I would have the radiator cleaned or purchase a new one. To clean the radiator take it to a professional and tell them you would like it rodded out. You can purchase a new one for about twice the price. I wouldn't worry about the low coolent sensor. By it being on it will not send a message that your vehicle is overheating. If you have changed everything that you say you have and the fans work and radiator is cleaned you may have a blown head gasket. If you have a blown head gasket you would see steam comming out of the tail pipes or water in the oil on dip-stick. Good luck.
The heat stove is a metal shield that covers one of your exhaust manifolds, usually the passenger side. It has a flexible pipe that runs to your air intake. When the engine is cold a valve in the intake opens and the engine pulls warm air from the manifold through the pipe.
Chances are the stove is missing from your truck, they tend to rust out at the mounting points and either fall off or get pulled off by someone who gets annoyed by the rattling they make. You can still run the pipe down to the manifold without the stove and it will do the job, just not as quick. The pipe can be got at an autoparts store but I think the stove is a dealer item. Ask to be sure. Hope this helps.
put the tie rod back in and thread the nut on. then you turn the inner tierod with a pipe wrench or a big pair of channel locks. you can spray the threads with pb blaster or wd-40. also if ya have a propane torch this helps loosen the threads. apply heat to the outer tierod do not heat the inner. good luck jimmy
