Cooling Issue

So it's come to my attention that my lower rad hose is not getting hot at all, I do have heat and the upper hose and the heater core hoses get hot. S do I have a air pocket somewhere and how do I get rid of it?

your lower hose really shouldnt be that hot. the coolant in the lower hose was just cooled by the radiator. got a temp gauge? whats it say?

It Wouldn't Be A Project If Everything Worked Right.

The lower hose shouldn't be hot. The hot coolant enters the radiator at the top and flows down. So your radiator is doing its job. Nothing to worry about.
