Re: Upper Radiator Hose
Make sure you pop the little plug on the front of the water pump to bleed he system. It is vital. I found this out because i could not get the plug out at 65k when I drained the system for the first time, because that plug was just plain stuck and stripped. I just tried to purge the air from he system the best I could. At 83k I pulled my heads and the rear coolant passage on the passenger side was all gummed up from and air bubble obviously blocking the passage... Kind of looked like bubble gum in there. If I had continued the drive the jeep it would have eventually blown the head gasket near that rear cylinder and air filled coolant passage. I replaced my water pump when I did my build and bleed the system properly this time.
