when you start it up leave the cap off the radiator becuase you get a good air bubble in the system after having the water neck off. once the engine gets up to temp the t-stat will open and suck the coolant in and the air bubble will escape then you add coolant till its full and your done

I knew that lol. My car always seemed to run pretty cool, turns out the thermostat that was in it was a 192° one, so it should run about 12° cooler or so...
