Hey Everybody,

I finally had a chance to get back to my cooling system. I refilled my radiator and began to bleed my cooling system. I let the engine warm up at idle and sitting on the ramps that have become a fixture in my driveway this week. During the warm-up, the tempertaure gauge never went higher than the 3/4 mark and stayed between the 1/2 and 3/4 mark. When I opened the bleed screw I got a few sputters and then steam. No fluid. also while the top radiator hose was hot is never seemed to harden up, it was very easy to pinch. Same with the lower hose (although it was cold not hot).

I still have a small leak from the housing (see my other post), but shouldn't the hose be building internal pressure?
