The only other thing I can think of is the t-stat from what im told the little round piece the rattles that's almost on the outside (sorry I don't know the name) needs to be on top in the 12 oclock position for whatever reason. Let me know if any of this helps and good luck!
Thanks, I'll certainly try it. I'm just wondering why i have a coolant leak I'm my driveway tho. Air in the system doesn't explain that.
