I would be so happy if it were just a hose!
though ive spent over 3K on it now with the new engine and all.... at least i would be able to drive without the heater on in 90 degree weather
I don't think there's air in the system. just yesterday i burped it.
while burping it (i had the radiator cap off) after it was at temp when i revved the motor - then let off - water would gush out of the radiator.
is that evidence for or against a collapsed hose? or what is that a sign of?
