Just got a chance to check it out, i didn't even think to check the radiator until just now, the thing was bone dry!!! I filled it up and turned the truck on, it took about a half gallon until it finally stopped taking any. I had to open the cap after i got it hot, tons of air came out. I noticed the upper hose had no fluid in it. Let the truck cool down and it took another half gallon, almost immediately started blowing hot air and the temp is staying between 200-206 now. I'm guessing i had an air lock?
