Flushed my cooling system today, it was horribly dirty. (po decided to put stop leak in it
Since letting it sit and warm up it does not seem to be getting as hot as it usually would.
It would crawl up to 230 if i let it and turning the heat on brought it right back down to 210ish. So far hasn't gone above 200 yet.
When having the top radiator hose off flushing out the old coolant/water the t stat kicked in and shut when it was supposed to
and the pump seemed to be pushing the water out fine.
The only thing I can think of if it gets super hot again is that the radiator is shot, seems like the original.
