No leaks in cooling system, I will try purging this afternoon. After I had more time to sit and rattle the problem around my head for the night. And now that the car is home where I can work on it. I realized that the inlet hose to the radiator was hot hard ( had pressure) and the outlet was cold ( could squeeze hose together with no effort) it is looking like I have a clogged radiator. CORRECT? It will take me a couple weeks to get the parts here but I am going to replace thermostate, water pump, radiator, gaskets and hoses and while I have the front apart with 78000 k. I might as well hit that vamos system to. What do u gentalmen say? Thanks for the input. Matt
