First, check the coolant level. Next, check the thermostat. Next, if the truck is older, check the radiator to see if it's plugged. If the coolant is rusty or any color other than green (gold for the newer GM coolant) flush the radiator and engine. If all of that hasn't solved the problem: with the engine cold, fill the radiator, then with the radiator cap off, start the engine to see if the coolant is blown out. If you see large amounts of coolant running out before the engine gets hot I'd be suspicious of a head-gasket or cracked head. Note that a small amount of coolant will be pumped out by the water pump but a cracked head or damaged head gasket will cause quite a bit of coolant to be pumped out. If there is any question about the head gasket or cracked head, you can purchase a test strip that will verify the presence of carbon monoxide in the coolant. If you have carbon monoxide in the coolant you DEFINITELY have either a cracked head or a leaky head gasket.

No, or not at least at normal atmospheric pressure. Though you can get it hotter in say a pressure cooker. Great question!

In general, foam is a better insulator than metal, and so foam would be expected to keep water hotter longer under most normal circumstances.

It is not always hotter, but most of the time it is because the outside temperature is lower than 98.6 which is the normal core temperature of a healthy human being.

A normal body temperature is 37 degrees Celsius or 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. A body temperature of 50 degrees Celsius is 13 degrees hotter than a normal body temperature. If your body temperature were to reach 50 degrees Celsius you be dead.

No. The deeper you go in Earth the hotter it gets. The mantle is hotter than the crust.

A fan assisted oven, called a convection oven, is quicker than a normal oven because it ensures that the heat is distributed more evenly throughout the oven's cavity. They are not hotter than normal ovens, as 350 F is 350 F however you look at it. They may take some time to get used to at first, since the cooking time for a recipe designed for a conventional oven would have to be slightly reduced.

Not necessarily. It could mean that you are ovulating. When you are ovulating your vaginal temperature will be higher than normal.
