Overheating, Strange...

After hose repair and other things the car was over heating. Then the hose running from the back of the engine to the nipple on the water cut off valve popped off and the car cooled right back down to normal temp.

Bad valve???

If it does not snow too bad tonight, I will replace that one weak hose and try to flush out the air with whater. Thanks for the tip.
