I'll try it again. Maybe I didn't have it warm enough and the thermostat to the heater core was closed; sometimes I don't think these things all the way through, and sometimes I overanalyze them and trip myself up. > (I've got a handy 1 in 3 road on the farm!) What is a 1-in-3 road? I've never heard that term before, but I do have 30 acres of land with hills. Is this a "slope of 3:1 ratio"? I've got that (on my 200 meter driveway in 2 spots). > make sure it can't roll away and repeat the bleed > procedure. It's always worked so far.

Cheers I noticed a tee-fitting right on one of those hoses for flushing, so maybe that's not a bad idea if this doesn't work. Can I borrow your road? Dave
