The AMSOIL Diesel Fuel Modifier can't hurt if cleaning is what they need. I
have had several customers that love that stuff.

  Simple.  New nozzles.  They're reasonably cheap to DIY but it takes 
a few steps to get leak free ones.  A tester is REALLY handy to 
make sure they need it first and shoot right when done as well.  
Hunting for a good price on rebuilds is often the wise thing to do.
  I wouldnt' expect bad nozzles to make an overheating issue 
though. It WILL sure make them burn hotter but a friend just 
went through the whole cooling system a couple times plus I don't 
know what all else.  Found out his tire pressure was below 20psi.  
Aired up the tires and no more overheating!
