Ahh I see. I will check when I get home. Did the OB test and its running around 95-97 with a good hi rev run for 15 minutes. The expansion bottle has not dropped from where I marked it after my bleed and test run last night. It just might be time for a cooling system overhaul because at 118k Miles's all I have proof of is that the t stat and pump were changed. Replace it all for piece of mind I am thinking!
