Sound,s like you may have and intake gasket leak,


1 more thing is that the temperature gauge barly goes above the cold mark iis that normal?


The tempreture,depend,s on the thermostat,if low temp 160,or high 180,this will determine the cooling,if you want more heat,change to a 180.


Alright thanks for the advice much appreciated!!
