My radiator hoses leaking coming from the

about 200 normally after I change the hose truck
still running about 225 to 250 goes up and down
depending on if I'm moving or sitting still, my
question is how do I get the air out of my system
soda run the right temperature

1 Answer


Remove cap to anti freeze over flow tank fill with anti freeze to full mark leave cap off and start vehicle and let idle anti freeze level in tank will rise slightly this is normal once thermostat starts to open anti freeze level in tank will drop add more anti freeze back to full mark then put cap back on. That should do it.
