I am guessing (hoping) that my overheating problems are

due to an air bubble forming in the engine block forcing water out my 13lb cap. Everything looked at points to this well known characteristical tendancy to be a little tough to properly fill up with coolant.

No leaks anywhere, no bubbles and, good flow at 160 degrees f. was observed with the cap off. I feel a little better.

fill it up to as far as you can cold, heater valve open, then warm up the car. if you have a cap with one of those lever-vent things on it, use that to burp air out. if not, then loosen the top hose clamp until it starts to hiss air out. if all that comes out is fluid, its already burped. it may also help to rev the motor some. HTH!

Check to see if your radiator has any cold spots, esp at the bottom hose.

That is the only place I've had problems with air in the cooling system. Same symptoms. Running HOT, high pressure as seen from the upper hose bulging, cap blow by.

I had to put a new pump on, and refill the coolant system by taking the top hose off the radiator and funneling it in there, heater valve set to warm, engine running.

Good Luck,

Elliot
