Was this a machine flush? Sounds like air in the cooling system. What do you mean about "no air" did the heater blower stop working?

No heater blower still blows, actually the now it blows wide open regardless if you turn it off or not.. Not certain what "machine flush" is, but I'd call what was done 'manual flushing' lol. Just stumped as to why it's running hot.. Thanks so very much for answering me.. Until next time. 4x4 Jaw


A machine flush is a machine that pulses the flushing agent back and forth through the cooling system, then pulls all out and pumps in new coolant. It is still possible that the radiator is restricted or the thermostat is not opening fully.
