You need to purge the cooling system from air pockets. Also the lower radiator hose will run cooler than the top radiator hose. Coolant from the engine flows up and out the top radiator hose into the radiator, and so the coolant cools down in the radiator and flows back into the engine from the lower radiator hose. Here is how to purge the cooling system... www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUpXgAJ1gjU
